I find a lot of the anthems and obsession over hijab on either side of the conversation to be corny. So to my surprise late one summer 2017 night I shed a gansta-tear when I saw Mona’s video for her song “Hijabi”... mainly because it was not corny! [or maybe it was because it was really late at night and I was tired lol]. Today Billboard announced Mona's song to be one of The Best Protest Songs of 2017.... Let's take a moment to give it up to Billboard being woke enough to even create such a list! I loved Mona and her crew’s regal, confident and aloof demeanor in the video, I loved the representation of various shades of Muslim women, I loved the aesthetics of each set design, there was a mood via color and lighting for each room the women were in. I loved that they had twin (I think!) sisters doing a dance. Good lyrics and she has a cool rap style. Not someone trynna get people to like them or accept them, but just an anthem for her and her girls & love for all.
