“I’m surprised Beyoncé liked me, I met Beyoncé!”

After her single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” hit No. 1 on both R&B and rap charts. New York-born rapper Cardi B has gained a lot of attention. Cardi B first appeared on VH1’s reality show “Love & Hip Hop” before the song blew up. “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” propelled Cardi into the national spotlight and helped her become one of the few female emcee’s to launch a major hit on the pop charts, which has been dominated by male acts for the last two years.

For an artist, there is nothing more frightening than following up a very successful piece of work. Cardi B. stated that she’s a bit nervous because there’s “a lot of pressure on” her after the success of “Bodak Yellow,” which is currently sitting pretty at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“Everybody’s waiting to see what I’m going to have next and it’s like, …I hope people love it, But I have confidence. I really do.”

Even with all of her success there are still acts that even this star gets star struck over and for Cardi, that artist is none other than Beyoncé. She was so excited to meet Queen Bey she said she couldn’t breath.

“I’m surprised Beyoncé liked me,” Cardi B. squealed. “I met Beyoncé!”

“It’s like, ‘Oh my God!’ That’s how it feels like. I can’t talk, I can’t breathe,” she added.

Cardi B has an album slated to come out in October to follow-up her widely successful single though no specific date was mentioned. For now she’s been enjoying the success and respect of her fellow artists. She even treated herself to a brand new Bentley truck and a new $80,000 USD watch. We’ll keep you posted on any new releases we get our hands on.
