In a Monday preview on her Instagram, the rapper gave her followers a tease of the Latin tinged track, which features chart toppers J Balvin and Bad Bunny.
The bilingual lyrics (hers are in English)include:
“Now I like dollars, I like diamonds
I like stunting, I like shining
I like million dollar deals
Where’s my pen? Bitch I’m signin ‘
I like those Balenciagas, the ones that look like socks
I like going to the jeweler, I put rocks all in my watch
I like texts from my exes when they want a second chance
I like proving n—-s wrong, I do what they say I can not
They call me Cardi Bardi, banging body
Spicy mami, hot tamale
Hotter than a Somali, fur coat, Ferrari.”
Our girl isn’t dressed up in a fur coat, but in different spicy outfits,including a flamenco skirt, a flashy red dress, huge hoop earrings and a head wrap a la Celia Cruz.
Commenters were loving it.
One follower wrote: “These outfits are [fire emoji]].”
Another complimented Cardi with. “At this point it’s no look she can’t own.”
And “Girl, you kill it so.”
The vid was reportedly shot at Ball & Chain in Miami.
Co-owner Zack Bush was proud to have rap royalty at his local hot spot: “We take great pride when some of today’s biggest stars show up at our historic venue in Little Havana,” he told Miami.com in an email. “For years we would hear about celebrities on South Beach. Now the stars are venturing off the beaten Miami path to film and to hang and dance at this historic [place].”
If you watch the “I Like It” video closely, there is no sign of a bump, but The Source reports Cardi was five months along.
Living under a rock?
The music superstar (born Belcalis Almanzar in the Bronx) is currently pregnant with boyfriend Offset’s baby, and seems to be having a good time of it so far. Though suffering from heartburn, the “Bodak Yellow” hip hopper is pretty happy about her glowing skin and new body.
On Instagram, CB talks about having a bun in the oven has enhanced her, um, cleavage.
