Cardi B brought all of the moods and vibes for her first post-pregnancy music video. In her first music video collaboration with Kehlani, the Dominican and Trinidadian rapper brought new life to the 90s and R&B soul with their latest video which accompanied their song “Ring” from Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album.
The two artists dropped the video on Monday giving fans some major throwback vibes for all of their 90s moods.

The new music video plays up the lyrics of the song, with Cardi B and Kehlani tangled up in a mass of old-school telephone wires and singing in phone booths. For their latest collaboration, both of the artists rock long platinum blonde hair and oily-slick colored jackets and outfits. As current and up to date as the visuals look, it’s exciting to see the video and receive a heavy dose of 90s Black girl group vibes like the ones we once got from groups like 702 or Destiny’s Child. Of course, there’s no overlooking the ways in which the two music artists’ matching hair looks will make you take a double take the way Shakira and Beyonce made everyone do back in 2006.
The new video might be a signal that Cardi B is ready to emerge after being on maternity leave.

In the months that followed the birth of Cardi B and her husband Offset’s daughter Kulture back in July, fans have worried that the Afro-Latina rapper had plans to take a break from music for longer than they’d anticipated. In recent weeks the new mother has shared her struggles with postpartum and been honest about what it has been like to be a new mother. At the end of July, the rapper pulled out of her tour with Bruno Mars saying that she had “underestimated” the demands of being a new mother. Earlier this month, however, she announced that she would be headlining the Tropicália Music and Taco Festival. The new music video is giving fans hope that Cardi B will be back on her feet and in the studio and stages sooner than we’d come to believe.
Fans of the two singers were super hyped about their latest collaboration.
