Magnetic, charismatic and unapologetic, Cardi B has done it again: he’s delivered one of the most exciting and vibrant music videos on the internet.
Her latest song, “Bongos,” featuring Houston, Texas rapper Megan Thee Stallion, has quickly become a fan favorite, racking up over 14 million views and debuting at #1 for top music videos on YouTube.
With a budget of $2 million to ensure the most eye-catching images, Cardi and Meg made a splash in Malibu, California, with colorful monochrome looks in the most vibrant and juicy color schemes.
Still in “Bongos” mode while on the East Coast, Cardi slayed the big apple in an orange and turquoise ombre Hanifa FW23 ribbed knit dress known as the “Taliah Maxi.” The hip-hugging bodycon dress featured cutouts at both the bust and hem of her dress and felt very on-trend with the Southern California theme ‘Bongos’.
When it came to Cardi’s accessories, she went bold with gold-toned bracelets, statement round earrings and a shiny gold ring that highlighted her long, fiery red coffin nails.
She dominated the room with her picturesque glamour, which included peach shadow, feathered lashes, lined lips and contours that perfectly defined her facial features.
We’re happy to see Cardi B back in her music bag and element, and she continues to amaze us with her authenticity that often exposes the facade of others who live in lies.
She’s come a long way, from growing up in Washington Heights and Bronx to becoming a star on Love & Hip Hop and now taking over the hip-hop industry as one of rap’s top emcees.
This shows that you have a vision that no one can see but yourself. Don’t give up on that vision, work hard and believe in yourself, and when the time is right, you will see that vision become a reality.
