Is this correct ?

I found this in a song and I wonder if he made that on purpose, so the song sounds better or is there any English structure where something like this actually exist.

I told her, "You don't know how powerful you is
With just one text you destroy all of this.... "

It should be "you are" obviously. "You is" is, I guess, slang. It is used here because it rhymes with "this", but many people do say "you is" in real life. Not to be racist or to generalise, but it's typically Black people that say it - it's very informal.
