"Let's talk about ESG for now
To the people at home or in the crowd
It keeps coming up anyhow
Don't decoy, avoid, or make void the topic
Cause that ain't gonna stop it
Now we talk about ESG on the radio and video shows
Many will know, anything goes
Let's tell it like it is, and how it could be
How it was, and of course, how it should be"
Do you recognize the words? They are the words of hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa from 1990. At that time they sang about sex, but if you just allow some editorial freedom and sing ESG instead of sex, well, the song is still relevant now, 27 years later.
