Who knew Daisy Ridley could rap?
Or, at least, who would have ever expected that Daisy Ridley would try to rap?
Well, in a video posted by Entertainment Tonight previewing a special bonus feature from the Target DVD/Blu-Ray exclusive edition of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the English actress, along with the help of some amateur beatboxing from costar John Boyega, can be found doing just that.
And, unsurprisingly, her entire 10-second verse is all about working on the Star Wars set — I mean, what else could she have to rap about?
Daisy’s foray into lyrical poetry wasn’t happenstance, though — and, thank god, it wasn’t even her idea at all. According to the story told by Boyega, he saw Daisy “doing a little rap one day” on set and, given his “good eye for talent,” knew that he could make the actress a big star — because, of course, having a lead role in last year’s highest grossing film was never going to be enough to make her a “big star” the way being a rapper would.
To give you a hint of Ridley’s…prowess…as a rapper, the song’s opening line is:
“We all up in the desert and we filming Star Wars,
Because of our diet, we can’t eat no Mars bars!”
I mean, it’ll do. For better or for worse, watch Ridley spit some bars below.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out on DVD and Blu-Ray everywhere today.
