Cardi B is set to release her first studio album in October. Her summer hit “Bodak Yellow” recently topped the Billboard Hot 100, dethroning Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” which had topped the chart for three weeks before it was knocked down to No.3. “Bodak Yellow” is the only second song by an unaccompanied female rapper to ever top the chart after Lauryn Hill did so in 1998 with “Doo Wop (That Thing)”.
Cardi B isn’t slowing down. The “Bodak Yellow” hit-maker took to Instagram Live to preview a new track, singing “Used to dance in the club right across from my school/I said dance, not f**k, don’t get it confused/Had to set the record straight, ’cause b***hes love to assume,” she raps in the unnamed record, which finds her spitting about her days as a stripper and her new-found success.
She continues, “Mama couldn’t give it to me, had to get it at Suez/ Lord only knows how I got it at Suez/ I was covered in dollars, now I’m dripping in jewels/ a b***h play with my money, might as well spit in my food.”
Taylor and the likes of Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Remy Ma and Migos have congratulated her on her success. On the other hand, Azealia Banks ranted against Cardi over her Hot 100 win. Responding to Azealia’s rant, Cardi took to Instagram to share a video of Azealia dancing to “Bodak Yellow”. “One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!” she perfectly captioned it.
