It's really Cardi B's week, huh? After taking her monster smash "Bodak Yellow" all the way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, she's been congratulated by hip-hop giants from Missy Elliott to Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim, and basically proved to everyone who wrote her off that she'll be sticking around for a long while yet. As if to prove it, she appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (26 September), ostensibly to perform her guest verse on G-Eazy's "No Limit," but obviously ended up blowing him out of the water before she even opened her mouth.


Unfortunately for G-Eazy "No Limit" is… not great. The lyrics "If I hit it one time Imma pipe her / If I hit it two times then I like her" sound even worse coming out of the mouth of a man dressed like an estate agent, and the dancers come off like a part of a low-budget music video from 2004. However, two thirds of the way through the bizarrely black-and-white performance, a shining beam by the name of Cardi B rolls through to save the day, bringing an electric energy from behind the coolest pair of oval sunglasses you'll see today. If she can make even this track look good, she's surely a keeper, right? Watch it above.
