A Great Year for Cardi B

Every now and then a song comes along that is just catchy and hard to dismiss. In 2017, Cardi B is the rapper that had that song. She was someone that managed to crossover even though she was barely known in the music industry.

For several years the reality TV role was what Cardi B played. It was with the “Bodak Yellow” song that she became a real star. This was one of the most played songs of 2017. It would go on to become a break out hit for Cardi B. This hit would allow her to gain the attention of Bruno Mars, and he put her on the “Finesse” remix. It was a great chance for Cardi B to show the world that she has something to offer in rap.

People that Google this breakout artist are getting a chance to see other videos that Cardi B has brought to hip hop, but few of these songs have surfaced in the way that the “Bodak Yellow” has. It is only a matter of time before more people start to ask more about who she is and how she came to be.

It is very clear that the reality TV show hype is what brought her to the mainstream. She decided to capitalize on this. She also used her sexuality to build an audience. The most importance part of the equation, however, is the way that she self-promoted her single and pushed it to the top with catchy hooks.
