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.”
In 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.”
