American band Timeflies has paid tribute to adult star Mia Khalifa, a Lebanese-American who courted controversy recently after shooting to the top of the world’s most popular porn sites PornHub.

The Timeflies number titled “Mia Khalifa,” the actresses’ stage name, is a rap that praises the 21-year-old on her physical features and includes lyrics such as: “Know she got dumps like a truck … From New York to the bay/All the way to Lebanon.”

Khalifa, who was born and bred in Lebanon and later moved to Miami, Florida, rose to the No. 1 spot on the adult site PornHub in December 2014, which provoked outrage in her home country and the wider Arab region. She has also come under threats over her actions.

Khalifa, a Christian, made reference to the tribute in response to one angered Twitter user who asked: "How does it feel to be the most hated Arab at the moment?”

"Pretty good since @Timeflies wrote a song about me,” she replied.

Producer Rob Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro told MTV News that the track was put together in a short space of time and released Jan. 7 as part of the duo’s Timeflies Tuesday project in which the pair release a new title every Tuesday.
Res said the feedback so far on the song has been “overwhelmingly positive.”

Khalifa told the Washington Post she hasn’t visited her home country since she was 10 and that the messages saying she was a “disgrace” and that she should kill herself were most hurtful.

“Hearing that my home country hates me stings more than anything else,” she told the paper.
