"Bet that hair look nice. Don't that make you sweat?
Don't that feel too tight?
Yo what yo hair look like
Bet yo hair look nice
How long your hair is
You need to get yo life"

28-year-old Syrian-American Mona Haydar’s rap song called ‘Hijabi’ has an eight-month-pregnant Haydar, and a group of women wearing hijab, dancing and singing along to the rap. The women, through this rap, are trying to spread the message that “all bodies are good and beautiful” and that people should stop associating hijabs and Muslim women with oppression.
