Judging from the comments, the song has really made an impact on her fans and followers.
Joy Lastname said: “I watched this with goosebumps and tears in my ears. There's a melanated version of every race and y'all so damn gorgeous!! *proceeds to cry very ugly tears but of joy*”.
WhiteTigress01 said : “From someone who was always told that my skin is too dark by others from a very young age, this makes me more confident about my own dark skin tone.
“I've never felt so blessed 🥰 No matter your skin tone, you're beautiful. Don't let others make you think otherwise. There's no beauty standard in this world 'cause everyone is beautiful just the way they are, in their own unique ways ❤️”.
Hamtie Ham said: “Is it just me or does someone else feel very emotionally connected to these visuals. Growing up, I have always hated my skin color and would wear covering outfits when it is sunny outside to prevent my skin from getting tanned.
“But after some realizations, it struck me one night that my skin is everything and for how long will I keep hating what nature know suits me. I’m proud black, proud of my skin and proud of everything black.
“I always apologize to my old self but I’m glad I stepped into a better representation of myself. This song makes me ready 🙍🏾👊🏾💗”.
