Also on the rise?
‘Va Va Voom’ (71 million), ‘Super Bass’ (255 million) and ‘Feeling Myself‘ (211 million).
Don’t you ever doubt yourself. If anyone would’ve told me as a lil girl from Trinidad that grew up poor that one day my face would be on a piece of @Fendi clothing, I would’ve laughed. Your support for #ChunLi led to this. A song I made up off the top of my head as a joke. ILoveU https://t.co/p4xUx1Lb68
