Dressed in an oversized yellow blazer, a pregnant Cardi delivers her verse. “Not too long ago I was dancing for dollars,” she raps. “Know it’s really real if I let you meet my mama / You don’t want a girl like me, I’m too crazy / But every other girl you meet is fugazi.”
Taking to Instagram, Cardi gushed about the collaboration. “I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG AND THE VIDEO IS SOO INSPIRING!!!” she said.
“Girls Like You” is the latest single off Maroon 5’s album Red Pill Blues, which features Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and A$AP Rocky.
