Throughout a livestream prior to the video’s best, Cardi exposed the motivation behind her new single. “I wanted a more hood song. I feel like my last song [‘WAP’] was too sexy,” she informed fans. “I wanted to do something more gangsta, more cocky.”
Along with the tune, she has actually debuted an impressive video, which she began practicing for around Christmas. The clip, directed by Tanu Muino, opens with Cardi standing on top of a tomb that states “RIP 2020” prior to breaking out some intense relocations along with her dancers.

“My music is always going to make a woman feel like a bad bitch. When you make a woman feel like she’s the baddest bitch in the room, to me, that’s female empowerment,” she informed ELLE. “But this album is going to be really different. Of course, it’s going to have my Lemonade moments, my personal relationship moments.”
Cardi is likewise set to go back to the cinema. She landed her very first starring film in the upcoming Paramount funny Assisted Living.
