"Mexican-born Kenya running through my veins/ Dark chocolate plus I keep a sharp mane," she rapped while in the back of a car. "Lancome fresh-face, looking tailor-made/Disney on the books so you know I stay paid/ Next stop Katwe rocking out with David/Don’t do critics if you’re hating please save it."

"Ambassador for elephants trying to save the planet," she continued. "I’m working on my master plan stunting in a hammock."
