New national anthem contender "Bodak Yellow" may have been knocked off the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, but there's still a multitude of money moves to be made. Cardi B brought her breakout hit to Jimmy Kimmel's special Brooklyn set Wednesday night. In pink glasses and a matching coat, Cardi also set my personal fashion goals for the next six months.
Earlier this week, Sony/ATV Music Publishing announced a global publishing deal with Cardi B. "Oooo, I'm so happy to be with my new family Sony/ATV," Cardi said in a press release. "'Bodak Yellow' is only the beginning and we're just getting started." Sony/ATV senior director of A&R Jennifer Drake touted Cardi's talent and called her an "honest, real, and refreshing" artist who will "push the culture forward."
Cardi B's debut studio album was initially set to drop this month, but has since been pushed back. In an interview on the Breakfast Club last month, Cardi explained that topping the "Bodak Yellow" success has proven difficult. "Every single time I think I got all 10 songs I'm like, 'I'm buggin', these ain't it,'" she said. "It's just, like, damn, I'm competing with myself. I'm competing with the goddamn No. 2 record [on the Hot 100] and stuff."
For now, "Bodak Yellow" is holding steady as the second biggest song in the country behind the newly crowned No. 1, Post Malone and 21 Savage's "Rockstar."
