Watch Cardi B's "Press" Video
A song about press gets a video, and some more press.
Up top, catch the KeY Wane and Slade Da Monsta-produced "Please Me" follow-up's video, which places Cardi in a court room amid frenzied detractors. There's also a Mechanical Animals-esque sequence that shouldn't be spoiled here in text, so just watch the full thing above. In the event that watching it up top doesn't work, here's a direct link. Jora Frantzis directed.
The song itself was teased as far back as late 2018, including via a short social media-shared clip of the song's chorus. At one point during the ensuing teases, Cardi tweeted out a photo of serial killer Aileen Wuornos. Promo art for the single saw Cardi nodding to the Wuornos photo in question.
The latest Cardi visual arrives in the wake of her appearance on Lil Nas X's debut EP 7, an eight-track collection that boasts a Cardi feature on the track "Rodeo."
True to the song title of her latest video, Cardi B has been in the press as of late over a strip club incident that took place August 2018. The rapper is accused of ordering an attack on two bartenders, sisters Baddie Gi and Jade. Cardi was apparently angered that Jade slept with Offset, an allegation Jade has denied. Cardi is facing 14 charges for her alleged involvement.
