SINGLE REVIEW: Cardi B feat. 21 Savage – Bartier Cardi
It really is becoming impossible to go anywhere without hearing the name Cardi B. The New York rapper exploded onto the scene with her breakthrough single “Bodak Yellow” and has continued to impress with countless collaborations. She’s received 2 Grammy Nominations, won 5 BET Hip-Hop awards, was the first female rapper to go number one on the Billboard Top 100 since Lauryn Hill in 1998 and has just been announced as a major performer at Coachella 2018. So yeah, she’s killing the game. Her second single “Bartier Cardi” has dropped and it’s just as catchy and ridiculous as its predecessor. The playful hip-hop track sees the rapper making reference to her new found wealthy and fame by making a sneaky reference to Cartier but changing the name slightly so she “doesn’t get sued”. From a first listen she will grab your attention with the hard beat and her signature delivery but the only thing that brings this song down is the unnecessary feature from 21 Savage. Like why was a rap from him needed? Because guess what, it wasn’t. This song would’ve still been strong without him and probably would’ve had a bigger impact if he was initially left off it. This track is pure fire and proves to people that Cardi B is infact the real deal.
