Cardi B stopped by the Tonight Show Wednesday night to completely steal the show from the host, presumably inspiring at least one producer to consider the possibility of giving the Grammy-nominated artist a late-night series of her own.

Though Cardi didn't perform, her five minutes on the couch more than made up for it. At the top of the interview, Fallon asked her to break down the history behind her name. "My sister's name is Hennessy, right?" she said. "So everybody used to call me Bacardi, so I always call myself Bacardi, right? And then it was my Instagram name—Bacardi, Bacardi B—but for some reason my Instagram kept getting deleted and I think it was Bacardi that had something to do with it. So I just shortened it to Cardi B."


Cardi also discussed her xmas gift methodology, her fiancé Offset, the Grammys, "Bodak Yellow" smashing records, that banger's long-awaited follow-up single "Bartier Cardi," and more. Catch the full chat in the video up top.

Earlier this week, the official videos for Cardi B and Ozuna's "La Modelo" and G-Eazy and Cardi's "No Limit (Remix)" dropped. In case you missed it, catch the "No Limit (Remix)" video—which also features ASAP Rocky, French Montana, Juicy J, and Belly—below.
