This makes me so happy ❤️ #Repost @iisuperwomanii
I love Bollywood and I love rap music, so I decided to collide both worlds and remake one of my favorite filmi songs into a rap anthem. Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai is a CLASSIC and so I wanted to pair it with some modern wisdom I’ve gained over the years. Growing up I was often taught a “right” and “wrong” way to be a woman. I was told exposing your body too much isn’t good, fair skin is the goal, having a tummy isn’t beautiful and subconsciously that other people could/would and should make judgements about you. I believed all of this for some time in my life because I didn’t know another way. As I’ve grown up, I’ve proactively made an effort to unlearn a lot of these things and this song represents that growth in a nutshell. Shout outs to all my sisters who love to cover up and to those who love to show it all. Shout outs to my sisters who enjoy reading books, cooking and/or flexing on a pole. Shout outs to my light, dark and everything in between sisters. Shout outs to all my sisters with PHAT stretch marks. Shout outs to my working women and stay at home moms. It’s YOUR choice. Regardless of all the things we’ve been taught and told, you’re beautiful and deserve respect. Tag a sister you love and let her know she’s AMAZING.
For those of you wondering, yes this is a repost. A few weeks ago I posted this video but the publisher took it down because it featured a sample from Choli. I was devastated because I believe in the message of this song and so I begged and pleaded to let it slide, but legally that’s not my decision to make and I respect that. Having said that, I found it important to remake the instrumental and try my best to give the song flavour again. So here is my alternate remake, inspired by Choli Ke Peeche Kya hai. I hope it inspires you just the same. Thank you @durranibros or making this happen. And thank you all for sharing the love x
