Results like yesterday, for Cardi B, bring it all back into perspective. A lot of people often use the “never give up” quotes and, more recently, many “realistic” memes have become popular. But, “realistic” and “conventional” were the things Cardi B “should” have done.
As a stripper, Cardi B found success, quickly becoming one of the most-popular dancers. Her Instagram videos gave her a huge following, which made her a strong social media personality. In 2015, Cardi B was cast on “Love & Hip Hop,” presumably replacing Erica Mena.
So many of the “Love & Hip Hop” girls were aspiring artists, but Cardi B got signed by Atlantic Records. Through all of this, even the deal, she was doubted. By summer 2017, “Bodak Yellow” hit, topped Billboard, and she did a string of features, and put out three more hits, including another Billboard Hot 100 number one.
One year after “I Like It” dominated radio, to no end, Cardi B revealed she made $1 million off one show. The last show she did grossed $1.1 million, so now she’s really winning. If Cardi B were to maintain that pace, she would make over $370 million a year.
