In a video posted by her label, Atlantic Records, Cardi B keeps it simple:

“It’s Cardi B and let me tell y’all something, state deadlines are coming very quick so make sure y’all click the link in the bio so y’all can register to vote,” she says in the brief video supporting the non-partisan group HeadCount, a national non-profit organization that works with musicians to promote participation in democracy in the United States.

With less than 65 days left until the November 3 election, the push to register voters and make sure they have the necessary materials to vote by mail or to vote early in their states is ramping up.

Cardi B had previously voiced her support for Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, interviewing him about his vision for the country and political views, before her dropped out of the race. She’s now thrown her support for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who she also interviewed recently.

Cardi B, riding high on the chart-topping success of her Megan Thee Stallion collaboration “WAP,” recently got into a social media tussle with former Republican congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine, after Lorraine made an unflattering comparison between Cardi B and First Lady Melania Trump after the latter’s speech at last week’s Republican National Convention.

“America needs far more women like Melania Trump and far less like Cardi B,” tweeted the politician who failed in her bid to unseat Democratic Speaker of the House leader Nancy Pelosi, leading the superstar to fire back, “Didn’t she used to sell that Wap?”

Making his grand return to social media since a three-month hiatus, the “Yo Perreo Sola” singer posted a photo of his electoral identification card along with a strong message encouraging voters to make their vote and voice count.

“Young people, you have until September 14 to get your electoral identification card to be able to vote November 3,” he wrote. “We are in a crucial moment in the history of our country and now more than ever, we have the power to change the course of Puerto Rico.”

He continued, “it’s time for a real change. Enough with the abuse coming from both parties that has PR tied up. Enough of the same thing over and over again. It’s time to make history. Get your ID and use it fearlessly.”
