Saloni’s liberating lyricism is sure to resonate, particularly with South Asian females, as she motivates them to achieve their goals and make their dreams come true. In the song, she sings about how it’s been a difficult journey for women to go after their dreams, but this generation is here to break down those barriers and reach the top.
