Cardi B Essentials

Cardi's story reads like a music-industry fairy tale: The ultra-charismatic Bronx native and former stripper parlayed social-media fame into a full-fledged rap empire. In 2017, “Bodak Yellow”—a tough, cocky trap number that lets everyone know who's the boss—was Cardi's big break, but her range extends well beyond that hit, including the breezy dancehall of “Back It Up” and the boogaloo-inspired “I Like It,” her collaboration with Bad Bunny and J Balvin that was chosen as Apple Music's Song of the Year for 2018.” Her guest features consistently burst with energy too, as she busts a ‘90s-inspired flow on Bruno Mars' “Finesse” and sings in Spanish on the hook of Ozuna's “La Modelo.”
