Okurrr! Cardi B just dropped the music video for her latest single “Money,” and there’s lots of twerking, strippers, and more. The video starts off with Cardi in a room full of dancers, in fancy black and white outfits, showing lots of skin.
From there, the shot cuts to a scene of Cardi in a museum-like room, where gorgeous clothes are displayed, giving us serious Met Gala vibes. Then she sings, “I got a baby / I need a baby.” Even though it appeared like her five-month-old daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, made a special appearance, it was reportedly a fake baby that she was breastfeeding!
Since her baby was born in July, Cardi has been keeping her away from the public. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago that she finally showed off her precious baby girl to the world amid announcing her split from husband and baby daddy, Offset. Since then, we haven’t seen much of Kulture other than the usual clips Cardi teases of her hands on social media.
In the rest of the video, Cardi incorporates lots of glam and dancing. At one point, she’s dancing on a stripper pole and at other times she’s watching the dancers, which seems to be a metaphor for her life before and after having ~money,~ since the rapper has been very open about her life as a stripper prior to fame.
This music video may be her greatest one yet. The aesthetic and art is so on point and even brings us back to her “Bodak Yellow” video. In one scene, the 26-year-old is on a stripper pole standing on two women while wearing heels. We’re very impressed with the dancers’ strength and ability to sustain Cardi like that, TBH, and we’re so here for all of it.
