Lupita Nyong'o and Us Cast Rap Video

Watch Lupita Nyong'o and the Cast of Us Rap to a Spooky Beat, and Just TRY Not to Nod Along

Lupita Nyong'o can do pretty much anything, and that includes dropping a rap song on her Instagram like it's no big deal — and it's so catchy! The black-and-white video Nyong'o shared on Thursday shows the actress and her Us movie family — including Winston Duke, Evan Alex, and Shahadi Wright Joseph — driving in a car with a pretty spooky beat playing in the background. Despite the rap song's haunting lyrics, Nyong'o and the rest of the Us cast can't stop smiling, and neither can we.

Alex, who plays Jason in the film, kicks off the rap before the rest of the group introduces their characters and their admittedly creepy doppelgängers. While we're still not understanding the "sushi" reference, the song definitely hints at some key aspects of the film for anyone interested in learning a little more about it without completely spoiling the story — or getting totally creeped out.

Really, I'm just glad Nyong'o didn't rap with her character's creepy voice. Jordan Peele's Us will be released in theaters on Friday, March 22, and I have to say, this video already has me chanting "Us! Us! Us!"

Check out the lyrics to the group's amazing Us-inspired rap ahead:

It's Jason, baby boy out the crew
Mask on deck, if you see me I'm comin' for you.

Zora stay ready, chopping the track like a machete (Sushi)
My duality comes at night
My Red Umbrae will give you a fright (Sushi)

I will make ya, cut and shake ya,
Five on it
All smoke no vapors, it feels real
I play Adelaide
You're your own worst enemy
Be afraid

Gabe's on deck if you wanna get crazy
Robin Hood gives me low bars
You know my Red ain't lazy

Watch yourself with that nonsense
Us is killing it, no contest

Wilson's got them scissors
And you know we'll make you quiver
'cause it's us (yeah)
Us (yeah)
Us (yeah)
Us (yeah)
Red's got them scissors
Baby don't you make a fuss!
