Only those living under a rock with their ears plugged would have been able to escape Cardi B's global takeover. Cardi's singles are topping the charts and she's featuring in new hip-hop tracks by the day. She dominated the Grammys by performing a remix of "Finesse" with Bruno Mars, and her album, Invasion of Privacy, even broke Apple Music's record for the most streamed album ever as of 2018. But who is this "Bodak Yellow"-rapping, Taylor Swift-dethroning, seemingly-come-out-of-nowhere star? Do you want to know why people love Cardi B – the new queen of rap?
It's not hard to find a reason: Cardi B's been plugging away in the music industry, the social media sphere, and the world of exotic dancing for years, but there is so much more to this superstar sensation. For one, she definitely wants you to know she's from the Bronx.
