“I used to watch Priyanka Chopra in the movies, now we having girls night and we popping booties.”

One of world’s leading YouTuber Lilly Singh aka Super Woman is back with her latest video that has taken social media by a storm. In the video she raps about the struggle to immigrate to US, as the character of Paramjeet, her Indian mom.

The video begins with a funny dedication message, “This video is dedicated to all the aunties who used to gossip behind my back and then bring ladoos to my house the next day, to the immigration officer who gave me hard time when I was trying to give better life to my family, han ji, and to all my peoples in the struggle, you know what I mean, han ji, Its all good baby baby.”

It also has sassy references to Indian childhoods and also takes a jab at Trump’s anti-immigration policies. “The President wanna build a wall, cause I’m brown, I am like Chris Jericho, I’ll break the wall down.”

The video then extends into an interlude of Lilly rapping to Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ in Trinidad and Tobago. The rap steals the show with hilarious punch lines like “He says he wanna try my basmati rice but some of these boys can’t handle the spice” and “Pepper make his bun go dun dun dun dun.”

The series also includes a rap on the beats of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Humble’ where Paramjeet (Lilly) hilariously sings “My kid never say shut up to me, and who they date is up to me, so aunty sit down and be humble.”
