Not only does ‘Jabba Flow’ have one hell of a funky beat, the lyrics are actually in Huttese – Jabba the Hutt’s language. Yep, Miranda trawled the internet to find the right words, the song translating to ‘no lover lover it wasn’t me’, which, as Miranda points out, is basically an intergalactic Shaggy remix.
