Lupita Nyong'o proves that there is nothing she can't do after appearing on Ciara's track "Melanin" released today.

Lupita Nyong'o is credited on the song as "Troublemaker." Does this mean Nyong'o plans on making moves in the rap world and releasing her own album? After working with Lupita, Ciara believes that this "Troublemaker" has what it takes.

"My girl Lupita N'yongo, she drops bars. This is the first time that Troublemaker made her appearance, so it's crazy," Ciara told Entertainment Tonight.

Lupita announces her rapper name on the track, "This Troublemaker back on the scene." Later in her portion of the song, she brings home the message of the song rapping about the importance of women of color embracing their skin color.

"My hue, I'm dark chocolate / Movie deals I get a lot / Yeah, because I'm a brown-skinned girl / These melanin chicks 'bout to run the whole world," Troublemaker says preaching a message while killing the rap game.

Lupita Nyong'o was thrilled to be apart of Ciara's "Melanin." When Nyong'o discussed the moment Ciara approached her with the project and said, "you know I had to show up and show out!"

Ciara will be hosting the American Music Awards. Ciara did not reveal whether "Troublemaker" and the other artists on the track will be there to perform "Melanin," it would definitely be a showstopper.
