Cardi B is about to turn “Bodak Yellow” into a bilingual banger. Over the weekend, the New York MC premiered a Spanish version of her hit song at the Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan. Now, she says fans can expect it to drop everywhere this week.
When a supporter posted a video from the event on Twitter, announcing that the Spanish version had been played, Bacardi confirmed the news. “Drops This Friday Aug 18 Everywhere,” she wrote. “#waitonit.”
According to Remezcla, the remix features fellow New York-raised Dominican rapper Messiah El Artista. Both artists were on the La Mega 97.9 float when the track was premiered at the parade.
The Spanish remix is set to arrive just in time for Cardi to continue making an impact on the Billboard Hot 100. As previously reported, “Bodak Yellow” is now the highest-charting single by an unaccompanied female rapper since 2014’s “Anaconda.” It breaks into the top 10 this week at No. 8.
