The gorgeous, ageless, actress Halle Berry has been busy making the rounds this month to promote her new movie The Call, in which she tries to help a young girl in danger while donning a very questionable wig. During her media blitz, I happened to catch a segment on omg! Insider where the co-anchor, Kevin Frazier, presented Halle with an interesting observation: Her name comes up a lot in rap lyrics.
Blame it on her stunning looks, but Kevin said that over the last 20 years, Halle has been mentioned in more rap songs than any other actress—and he had some great examples:
“The Macs and Dons” by Notorious B.I.G.: “I like long hair or them Halle Berry cuts.”
“Work It” by Missy Elliot: “Don’t I look like a Halle Berry poster?”
“Money Trees” by Kendrick Lamar featuring Jay Rock: “It go Halle Berry or hallelujah.”
Plus, I found a few other songs that name-check Halle via Rap Genius:
“Me & You” by Outkast: “Passes gettin’ thrown like Hail Marys and they’re looking like Halle Berries.”
“The New Workout Plan” by Kanye West: “Henny makes girls look like Halle Berry to me.”
“Higher” by J. Cole “My life is a movie, would you be my co-star like Halle Berry?”
And that’s just a sampling of what’s out there. Halle Berry is 46-years-old and she still inspires men who are nearly half her age to give her shout-outs in their songs. I can see her being like Helen Mirren someday, with gray hair, a few wrinkles and still turning heads. Ain’t nothing wrong with that!
