Cardi B may be a long way from her beginnings as a stripper in New York but the Grammy-nominated rapper never forgets where she came from. On Friday afternoon, Cardi decided to treat fans to an early Christmas present by delivering the sizzling video for her latest scorcher, “Money,” which celebrates her dancing roots. However, Cardi truly sent the Twitterverse into a tizzy when she rapped while breastfeeding a baby that may or may not be Kulture.
In the video, we’re first greeted by an aerial dancer swinging in the middle of a room before Cardi and her posse, all dressed in Cruella de Vil-esque black-and-white outfits, take over a bank. And when Cardi raps the line “I got a baby / I need some money, yeah,” the rapper is seen breastfeeding a baby that many believe could be Cardi’s 5-month-old baby, Kulture. Could Kulture be ready for her close-up? Or is the figure in the video just a replica? Fans on Twitter certainly seem to think the baby is—or at least represents—Kulture.
Elsewhere in the visuals, Cardi proves that she still has the moves, twirling on the pole and performing other astounding acrobatics.
“Money” was Cardi B’s first solo single since her debut album Invasion of Privacy was released in April. With Invasion of Privacy, Cardi became the first female artist to have all singles from an album certified gold or platinum by the RIAA.
