Throughout Project Power, aspiring rapper Robin (Dominique Fishback) is challenged as to whether or not she can truly rap. At one point in the film, she thoroughly demolishes a teacher with her lyrical flow with the help of a fellow classmate, played by real-life rapper Chika. Unsurprisingly, there's a deeper meaning to the Chika cameo. Turns out the 23-year-old rapper is responsible for all the rap verses performed by Robin as well as the song "My Power," which plays over the end credits.

As to how Chika became involved with the project, Chika revealed in the Netflix production notes that "Jamie Foxx saw my Instagram and saw me rapping and thought I was dope and he wasn't incorrect." I have to agree with Foxx on that one, as "My Power" will be stuck in your head for the foreseeable future — it's that good. After all, "my word is my power power" and I stand by the fact that Chika, who released her EP Industry Games in March, is one to watch. You can listen to the full song, and its infectious beat, above.
