Cardi B is a trending queen

The 30-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning rap superstar’s collaboration with husband and rapper Offset, “Jealousy,” has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’Hot Trending Songs chart, powered by Twitter, dated August 5.

Cardi B, Offset, JealousyBillboard’s Hot Trending charts, powered by Twitter, tracks global music-related trends and conversations in real-time across Twitter, viewable over either the last 24 hours or past seven days. A weekly, 20-position version of the chart, covering activity from Friday through Thursday of each week, posts alongside Billboard’s other weekly charts on Billboard.com each Tuesday, with the latest tracking period running July 21-27.

“Jealousy” premiered in full on July 28, but its release was first teased on with a video posted to Offset’s social media on July 24 starring Jamie Lee Curtis. Two days later on July 26, its title – and Cardi B’s involvement – was revealed.

It’s Cardi’s second No. 1 on Hot Trending Songs, which began in 2021, after she was also featured on Latto’s “Put It On Da Floor Again” this April. Meanwhile, it’s Offset’s first solo appearance on the survey.

Cardi B Team Ups with Offset to Release New Single “Jealousy” & Self-Directed Music Video

Cardi B is released the green-eyed monster

The 30-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning rap superstar has joined voices with her husband Offset to release the single “Jealousy.”

Cardi B, Offset, JealousyIn the self-directed visual from one of hip-hop’s biggest power couples, Cardi B and Offset work through their issues onscreen while keeping hold of what’s most important: their kids, each of whom makes a cute cameo in the project.

After walking out on a screaming match with Cardi B, Offset indulges in some boy time with their almost 2-year-old son, Wave, while playing mini-basketball and riding bikes with his sons Jordan and Kody from previous relationships.

Kulture, his 5-year-old daughter with Cardi, and 8-year-old Kalea, whom he shares with Shya L’amour, are later captured giggling adorably together in the front seat of a car.

But just because the video was a family function doesn’t mean it was strictly PG. One scene, for instance, featured Cardi B crouching down to mimic a NSFW action on ‘Set, who is leaning against a vintage convertible.

All the while, the two superstars take turns getting things off their chest, both of them using their respective verses to call out haters who speculate on their relationship.

The couple first started teasing “Jealousy” earlier this week, enlisting Jamie Lee Curtis to play a reporter questioning their relationship drama in a spoof on James Brown‘s memorable 1988 CNN interview.

Later, Cardi B. shared a video co-starring Taraji P. Henson, in which the “WAP” rapper rants about Offset’s past infidelity and Henson encourages her to stay with him.

“Jealousy” may or may not be Cardi B. and Offset’s response to their own recent real-life relationship issues, which went public last month after the Migos rapper accused his wife of cheating on him via Instagram Stories.

Shortly afterward, Cardi B jumped on Twitter Spaces to emphatically deny the accusations.

But based on a few public appearances in the weeks since, and now, their new collaboration, it definitely seems like the two have resolved the conflict. Plus, an insider tells Billboard that Offset’s family is “his No. 1 priority,” adding, “He’s making sure they are involved.”

Cardi B Channels Inner Emo Kid to Cover Fall Out Boy at New Year’s Eve Party

Cardi B is experiencing a major Fall Out moment…

The 30-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning rap superstar celebrated New Year’s Eve on Saturday, December 31 by covering Fall Out Boy‘s seminal hit “Sugar We’re Goin’ Down.”

Cardi BCardi B’s delightfully emo moment came during her performance at Miami’s E11EVEN nightclub to ring in 2023.

With a drink in one hand and a mic in the other, Cardi excitedly launched into the 2005 single in a fan-captured TikTok video.

“Anything you wanna hear/ But that’s just who I am this week/ Lying in bed/ Next to the mausoleum,” she wailed a capella as the crowd excitedly sang along.

“Cardi [B] singing fall out boy first thing after midnight on new year’s day is exactly how i wanted to start my year,” the TikTok user wrote on the clip, which also features Offset on stage, playing to a different part of the packed crowd.

Released as the lead single off 2005’s From Under the Cork Tree, “Sugar We’re Goin Down” served as the foursome’s breakout hit, becoming their first top 10 smash and ultimately peaking at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. The pop-punk anthem also reached No. 3 on the Alternative Airplay chart as well as No. 2 on Pop Airplay.

Funnily enough, Cardi B’s appreciation for Pete Wentz and co. plays into a tweet she posted earlier this fall expressing her love for the “emo kids” at her high school who were “actually really cool and will give me free cigarettes.”

Weeks before her New Year’s Eve performance, Cardi B promised that her long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s Invasion of Privacy is set to be released sometime in 2023 and even treated the Bardi Gang to a seven-second snippet of an unreleased song via Twitter.

Cardi B has some real sway

The 29-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning rap superstar appears on the soundtrack of Nickelodeon’s popular animated series Baby Shark’s Big Show!.

Cardi BCardi B appears as Sharki B in a guest-starring role on the series.

On the episode, Cardi’s character will teach Baby Shark and his best friend William her catchy, viral-ready dance craze “The Seaweed Sway,” before performing it onstage.

“Every fishy can do the seaweed sway/ Do it how you want to do it, or do it Sharki B’s way/ You can take a big bite/ Shake your tail or your fins, let’s begin,” Cardi raps in the adorable video, joined by husband Offset (voicing Offshark) and 3-year-old daughter Kulture (Kulture Shark).

According to a press release, Sharki B is “the biggest star in the seven seas — flashy, awe-inspiring, and ruthlessly fun — but always 100% herself and fin-spires other fishies to do the same.”

Baby Shark’s Big Show!, which is based on the Pinkfong song “Baby Shark” and its wildly viral dance video, premiered on Nick Jr. back in December 2020 with a Christmas special. In addition to the Nickelodeon series, a “Baby Shark” movie is also on the way in 2023.

The whole episode of Baby Shark’s Big Show!, starring Cardi B and her family, will premiere Friday at noon on Nickelodeon. Ahead of the episode, listen to  “The Seaweed Sway” on the compilation album Sing, Dance & Sway the Nick Jr. Way, which is currently out on all streaming platforms.

Cardi B Launches Line of Vodka-Infused Whipped Cream, “Whipshots”

Cardi B is officially whipping up a new business venture…

The 29-year-old half-Dominican American rap superstar has launched Whipshots, her line of vodka-infused whipped cream.

Whipshots by Cardi B Whipshots by Cardi and Starco brands are available on Whipshots.com in 500-can-per-day Whip Drops, and the three launch flavors — vanilla, caramel and mocha — have been selling out in under four minutes daily since December 1.

“I’m not really a hardcore liquor-drinking person. And I like things that are sexy and tasty. It’s going to be a party in every can,” Cardi B tells Billboard.

On December 4, Cardi B debuted Whipshots with a sweets-themed party at Pharrell and David Grutman’s The Goodtime Hotel in Miami.

Parading into the party with an entourage of music heavyweights including Offset, Mary J. Bilge and Timbaland, record producer Tainy, actor Winston Duke and football player Dale Moss, she popped a few cans, removing the plastic wrap with her teeth and shot the cream into the mouths of party guests. It was served in cones, cocktails and on desserts throughout the event, with chief mixology officer and Las Vegas bartender Rob Floyd putting some flair in the cocktail making.

The Whipshots suggested application is to “enjoy on cocktails, desserts, lovers or solo as a shot.” But Cardi says her current favorite way is on eggnog — just in time for the holidays.

“This is eggnog right here,” Cardi says. “The vanilla one I’ve been eating for a week. We are going to have different flavors next year.”

Starco Brands CEO Ross Sklar says that Cardi was the perfect partner for Whipshots because her fun, playful personality perfectly matches the ethos of the product. Sklar believes they have created the perfect trifecta: highly appealing flavors, plus creative direction and celebrity/influencer strategy.

“We commercialize products and technologies that are meant to be behavior changing,” he says.

And while other companies have tried to release similar products over the years, what makes this one unique is it 10 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), does not require refrigeration and is non-dairy, made of oat milk and coconut milk, different sugars, flavorings and distilled vodka. Sklar says it is ideal for espresso martinis, or with vodka and soda water, spray on a dollop and mix it in to give a creamy texture. It even works with rum and coke.

“We look at all the sectors that we play in spirits, and food was really lacking innovation,” Sklar says. “We saw this tried in like 2005 and it didn’t work because the product life had issues. From a technology standpoint, and from a formulary vantage point, it’s very hard because the alcohol depresses the foam. You really have to balance it until you find a sort of utopia. And then dialing in packaging, the back end and the automation and supply. It’s a huge enigma to solve. We’ve been working on it for just over four years. It’s an innovation in the celebratory category.”

And then, just add Cardi.

“You’ve got to find somebody that has a personality that is transparent, super fun, super playful. Someone who doesn’t mind being flirty, but above all, is herself. The product delivers and the personality delivers … That authenticity delivers credibility,” Sklar says.

Outside of the daily Whip Drops, Whipshots will hit stores early next year and is priced at $5.99 for 50 mL, $13.99 for 200 mL and $19.99 for 375 mL bottles, respectively.

Lizzo and Cardi B offered a sneak peek into their upcoming “Rumors” video on Thursday.

Lizzo, who’s credited as the lead artist on the single, posted the trailer on her socials hours before it officially arrives.

Cardi B, who’s currently pregnant with her and Offset‘s second child, shows off her baby bump in a golden two-piece and ancient Greek column cap. While displaying her belly in the “Rumors” visual, the rapper was reluctant to show her stomach during the Wild Side” music video with Normani, but joked that she would’ve contributed to the choreo-heavy video if she wasn’t expecting.

“If I wasn’t pregnant I would of done a lit ass pole video to wildside ….but I am so imma just have to do a video rolling on the floor like peppa pig,” the rapper tweeted in July.

“SNEAK PEEK OF ‘RUMORS’. ARE YALL READY? MIDNIGHT. TONIGHT. @iamcardib,” Lizzo captioned the Instagram clip, to which Cardi responded: “I think they ready now.”
