Cardi B – Bodak Yellow OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO
She went from stripping to becoming the breakout star of 2017. So what’s she worried about?
In June came “Bodak Yellow,” named in homage to Florida rapper Kodak Black, whose song “No Flockin'” inspired its flow. “Bodak Yellow” is an unlikely Number One: a tough trap song with zero concessions to the mainstream, or even anything like a conventional pop hook. In a year when the youth power of streaming services, which now count toward chart positions, is changing the very meaning of pop, she’s become the first female rapper to score a solo Number One since Lauryn Hill in 1998. Not bad for someone who initially pursued rapping as a way to monetize her reality fame.
