All Hail the New Queen of Pop: Cardi B

Her song "Bodak Yellow" just knocked TSwift out of the Billboard top spot.

She used to be a stripper but now she making money moves!

Is she the new Beyoncé? Or will she be forgotten in a few weeks?

Here's the chorus (do hip hop songs have a chorus?) that kids are singing on the playground:

Said little bitch, you can't fuck with me If you wanted to

These expensive, these is red

Said little bitch, you can't fuck with me If you wanted to

These expensive, these is red bottoms

These is bloody shoes

Hit the store, I can get 'em both, I don't wanna choose

And I'm quick, cut a nigga hustle

Don't get comfortable

Look, I don't dance now, I make money moves

Say I don't gotta dance, I make money move

If I see you and I don't speak

That means I don't fuck with you

I'm a boss, you a worker bitch

I make bloody moves, These is bloody shoes....

For us old and out of touch folks, this article decodes the lyrics.

""I named it "Bodak Yellow" because the flow of the song. It will remind you of a song that Kodak Black did called 'No Flockin'," Cardi said in a past interview with MTV. In regards to the title, she added: "'Bodak,' my name starts with a B and 'yellow,' because I'm a yellow bitch." "

by Anonymousreply 1809/25/2017

One for the history books!

"With “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi B becomes the first woman since Lauryn Hill and “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” in 1998 (!) to have a No. 1 solo rap song, and she is just the fifth female rapper in history to make it to the top (second to do it alone)."

Cardi is funny. Love and Hip Hop New York will suck now without her comic relief, and occasional beat downs. She is also the first cast member other than K Michelle to really launch a successful music career out of the show.

Her makeup line Fenty Beauty is selling like hotcakes globally and was released less than two weeks ago. She had the best show at NYC fashion week and her PumaFenty line is doing amazing. Rihanna is seriously on another level when it comes to marketing and making money for brands and creating her own fashion brands which she OWNS!!! AND her Saudi billionaire boyfriend is gorgeous and she lives with him in London.

It's interesting to see Taylor Swift underperforming by her standards. She broke records when her new single came out, but it was front-loaded. Her second promo single also underperformed. I had a feeling that '1989' was going to be her peak, and that appears to be the case.

Again, the line is getting raves from beauty professionals in the fashion industry. I don’t care if you think I’m a Rihanna stan or not. I’m going by what I’ve read in magazines, newspapers, blogs and YouTube reviews. This line has gotten industry wide approval and the sales have proven so thus far. Some would love the line to fail and have Rihanna stay in her lane, but unfortunately for those sceptics/haters that’s not going to happen.

Is it fair to write a song and pray that it gets to #1(which means crossing over) but setting guidelines as to how it must be sung by those buying/playing the music? I get the whole, "we can say it and you can't thing" but when you put it in a song, aren't you taking that to another level?
