Two years ago, Cardi B was a virtual no-name, who was fast becoming one of Instagram’s most-popular users. Back then, she was primarily known as a dancer in NYC. She had a few records that went viral off the strength of her social media presence.
It was this same social media presence that led to VH1 casting Cardi B for “Love & Hip Hop.” Despite her immense popularity, Cardi B announced she would depart the show after the following season. It turns out, she had good reason.
Within months of leaving “Love & Hip Hop,” Cardi B scored one of the summer’s biggest records. “Bodak Yellow” is everywhere, as Cardi B performed it during the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor weigh-in. A little under a week later, the video has passed 100 million views.
See the numbers on the “Bodak Yellow” video below:
