Cardi B Drops Her First Collaboration With Bruno Mars And Twitter Wants Their MTV Back

Two years ago, Bruno Mars’s attached the song “Finesse” to his 24k Magic album. Slotted next to chart hits like “That’s What I Like” and “24K Magic,” the song was a bit dormant in comparison to the other attention grabbing hits that made the album. Then… Cardi B happened.

In her first time ever collaboration with Mars, Cardi B has managed to give the song new life and an audience that’s already dubbing it their all time favorite.

Bruno Mars and & Cardi B’s “Finesse” remix video transports us back to an era where “In Living Color” played on the screens of bulk TVs with ’90s-inspired denim, bumping choregraphy, and playful sets. But the time travel isn’t just visual. Cardi’s lyrical flow acts as a clear hat tip to 90s female rap legends like Lisa Lopes and Queen Latifah. It’s smooth, it’s bouncy, it’s nostalgic.

Oh yeah, and she breaks out some seriously fly ass bump and grind moves too. The song’s music video features the two musical artists in fresh outfits reminiscent of those on “Different Strokes.” It also has some pretty boss outfits that give promise to the sustainability of the 90s nostalgia trend. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon folks.

No surprise here, Cardi B’s feature in the video has Twitter stirring over her finesse.

Because she’s dripping in it and setting it on fireeee.

Seriously, folks, it seems everything Cardi touches these days turns to gold.

Her musical work in the past year has put her at the top of historical music charts. Last year she became the first rapper in history to have three songs at the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 slot at the same time. It’s a feat only ever achieved by Ashanti and The Beatles.

So basically everyone is pumped AF about what her twist on the song will do for it this year.

Now she says she gon’ do what to it?? If we don’t see it grab a few Grammy nods, we’re pretty sure we’ll see it takes its grip on the Billboard charts.

Check out Cardi B in “Finesse” below:

And BTW if you still have to ask… she’s what’s poppin’.

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.

In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.
