Always cringed when my mother pulled up to school with these songs on blast. She did not understand my need to code switch and my identity crisis at the time.
But I now realize, I also didn’t understand her identity crisis, as an immigrant to a new world, and her need for these songs to keep her rooted. I have a newfound appreciation for these #chunes and the artists who created them.
Also, I critically analyzed this song for this post 🤣 The chorus is goals because there are no gender roles in their kitchen, but why does chacha get the hassa and chachee only get the surwa (gravy) @terrygajraj? 🤔
