Nothing spells 2018 quite like Cardi B. The Bronx hometown legend blessed us and Bruno Mars by showing up and out for this self-directed “In Living Color” tribute video. Prior to the release of the video, Bruno and Cardi teased out the debut with back and forth posts on Instagram.
The original version of “Finesse” made its debut on Mars’ 2016 hit album 24k Magic. The pairing, while it may seem unlikely, is the best way to kick off the rapper’s 2018. Cardi B dominated 2017 with her break out single “Bodak Yellow”, which earned her two Grammy nominations and record-break chart topping spots. On Christmas, Cardi blessed us with her single “Bartier Cardi”, featuring 21 Savage, “Motorsport“, featuring The Migos and Nicki Minaj, her single with Juicy J “Kamasutra”, and her show-stealing verse on G-Eazy’s No Limit.
I’m ready for a year of Cardi B. The video can be found here:
