“I’m breaking dishes, up in here. All Night (uh-huh). I ain’t go stop until I see police and lights (uh-huh).”
Sorry, was having a little Rihanna moment there but nonetheless it does have something to do with this concept by Yoon-Jung Yun. Everyone eventually breaks a dish so why not purposely build in a second function should you get dish happy.
