BET Awards weekend was Cardi B’s prom. The Bronx rapper performed during The BET Experience, the Aftershow for the awards, and she premiered her the video for her video for “Bodak Yellow” during the BET Experience. The exotic visual has Cardi around camels, cheetahs and tons of sand.
Meanwhile, after months of rumors Cardi has finally confirmed a rumor that has been circulating since late 2016. The former “Love & Hip Hop” star confirmed in her Summer Issue cover story for FADER that she has signed to Atlantic Records.
“I had a lot of deals on the table but like they gave me the best offer, the one that I don’t have to owe them much, and they just gave me a lot of money so I took it,” she said. “They gave the right number, so I chose them. It was significantly more than other [deals]. I heard a lot of good things and they was really eager to work with me so I was just like, if they want to give this money then it’s because they’re really gonna work hard for me.”
Cardi hopes that the deal makes it easier for her to get on the radio, book shows, and considered seriously, as she felt like it was harder to accomplish these things as an Indie artist. Judging by the “Bodak Yellow” visual, she made a great choice. Check it out above.
