While “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” enters the top 10 on the Hot 100, Cardi B unleashes the “Latin Trap Mix” to her hit single.
Assisted by Messiah, Bacardi drops Spanglish bars on her fans, reiterating the “Bodak” messages that have become anthemic over the ultra-popular J White instrumental.
“Es verdad,” she raps. “No me importa a quien le caiga mal / Llevo dos mixtapes en seis meses, nadie me puede para.” Translation: “It’s true / I don’t care who’s offended by it / I dropped two mixtapes in six months / Nobody can stop me.”
Bardi, who comes from a Dominican and Trinidadian background, explained why the Spanish version of the track was so important for her. “A lot of my family members on my dad side of the family don’t understand English,” she wrote. “I wanted to make them proud ,Sooooo I did BODAK YELLOW IN SPANISH !!I also love Spanish music !!!”
“Bodak Yellow” cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 this past week, soaring as high as No. 8. This made Bardi the first female rapper to enter the top 10 with a debut entry on the chart since Iggy Azalea did it with “Fancy.” It’s also the highest-charting single by an unaccompanied female rapper since Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.”
“I cant believe this is my life,” Cardi tweeted following the Hot 100 news. “I’m soo emotional.Thank you God for these blessings.”
