YouTuber Lilly Singh, perhaps better known by her moniker 'Superwoman', is setting social media on fire with her latest video. "If Bollywood Songs Were Rap" by the well-loved YouTuber is a five-minute compilation of three Bollywood hits reimagined as rap. Only, in her signature style, Lilly Singh does more than just translate the lyrics - she uses them as tools to touch upon an array of topics like beauty standards for women, body positivity, issues related to mental health, bisexuality and more.
The video uses the music of three songs - Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai, All Izz Well and Aankh Marey.
"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?" wrote Lilly while sharing the video.
