Cardi B Thanks Janet Jackson for ‘Bodak Yellow’ Dance Performance: ‘I’m So Happy’ [VIDEO]
Let’s keep it real, everybody loves Cardi B. The Bronx native has been riding a huge wave with her ubiquitous hit, “Bodak Yellow.” R&B superstar Beyonce has recently shown her support. But now an influential pop icon has co-signed the rap sensation.
Video has surfaced of Janet Jackson dancing to “Bodak Yellow” on her “State of the World” tour. The 51-year-old singer was performing her classic song “What Have You Done for Me Lately” before segueing into Cardi B’s club banger. Janet’s dance interpretation of Cardi’s lyrics is fantastic.
Cardi caught wind of Janet’s dance performance and was deeply moved by it. Clearly, she didn’t think in her wildest dreams that her song would catch the attention of Janet…Ms. Jackson, if you’re nasty.
“I really can’t even believe this. Its soo surreal,” Cardi wrote on his Instagram page about the clip. “Like ommmmmmmgggg son this the type of s— you dream about. Thank you Janet Jackson for showing Bodak Yellow some love. I’m so happy.”
It seems like everyone is rooting for Cardi B to win. She certainly has become everyone’s favorite rising star. Recently, Cardi garnered nine nominations for the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards, including Single of the Year (“Bodak Yellow”), Hustler of the Year and Best New Hip-Hop Artist.
Cardi B also wowed attendees at Rihanna’s 2017 Diamond Ball. She wore a gorgeous diamond-colored, floor-length Christian Siriano gown to the star-studded affair.
Ladies and gentlemen, Cardi B has arrived.
