Lilly Singh, who is a Canadian YouTuber and Television host has taken the internet by storm dropping a video “If Bollywood Songs Were Rap”. Lilly Singh, who loves Bollywood song has decided to compile a five-minute video of three Bollywood songs Choli Pe Peeche Kya Hai, All Izz Well and Aankh Marey reimagined as rap.
While posting the video on YouTube, Lilly Singh wrote, “I love Bollywood and I love rap music. So I decided to let my worlds collide by turning some of my favourite songs into rap songs! And while I was at it, I thought, why not make them little motivational anthems that speak to causes close to my heart?”
Lilly also informed her fans that she is coming to Mumbai to attend YouTube FanFest on March 30, where she is likely to perform.
“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 judgments about you. I believed all of this for some time in my life because I didn’t know another way,” she wrote.
Her caption further read as, “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.”
