Cardi B was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, thrashing out a performance of "Bodak Yellow" to a slightly stunned Brooklyn crowd. There was an elaborate set, with a fully-stocked newsstand and a smoke-filled fire station for Cardi to emerge from, and the rapper wore an all-pink outfit. It was a carefree step up, even by Cardi's standards. That's probably what explains the awkward dude in the front row, stage left, who's awkwardly trying to rap along with Cardi, and the chill mum, front and centre, bopping with her arms up while a crew of dancers twerk in front of her.
Cardi B has powers that we can't comprehend.
