Crystal Valentine & Aaliyah Jihad – “Hide Your Shea Butter”
“It’s not that we don’t trust white people. It’s that y’all
really think my black looks better on you.”
Heading into the new year, we’re counting down the top-viewed videos on Button from 2016! Coming in eighth on the list, “Hide Your Shea Butter” by Crystal Valentine & Aaliyah Jihad. Congratulations poets!
Note: This countdown list only covers a small fraction of the brilliant artists who let us share their work on our channel this year, and is by no means a definitive list of the “best” poems, simply the ones that got the most views. Take some time and check out more from the past year on our channel!
