It has been quite some time since I sat down, put my thoughts together, and created a post about music. Music keeps me going
throughout the day through life. I remember my old roommate once saying my headphones were like my earrings, bracelets, or another accessory I own, I ALWAYS have them in. I have decided to revamp the name of music category on lookinthemirah to “Music On A Monday” ,giving you my thoughts and opinions on various artists, as well as their fashion sense, on a Monday.
As I sit here, blasting, and also dancing to “Bodak Yellow”, of course I had to talk to about Cardi B. and making history with this single. Back in March, I did a post about Cardi B.’s extremely bold personality and amazing style. She’s simply being herself and you have to take her for who she is! From a stripper from the Bronx, to a reality tv personality, to the many faces she now holds, I really respect her hustle and the name she has made for herself. As she mentions in her song, “dropped two mixtapes in six months, what b***h workin’ as hard as me?” Every time I turn around I see Cardi B. or hear her name/music. Go get that money sis!
Just last week Cardi B. pushed Taylor Swift out the way and topped the charts becoming the 1st woman with no features on a rap single since Lauryn Hill’s (Doo Wop) That Thing, almost 20 years ago! You would have thought I knew Cardi B. on a personal level the way I was so happy for her. THIS IS BIG! THIS IS HISTORY! As soon as I got on social media, everyone was so ecstatic and talking about it. There’s just something about seeing my people win, especially when they have come so far. Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim, J.Cole, and her boo Offset from Migos were just a few people in the industry who congratulated her on this huge accomplishment. Every time I go out and “Bodak Yellow” comes on, believe me when I say EVERY WOMAN is rapping her ass off, hand motions and all; men, I see you low-key enjoying the song as well, it’s okay. The song is definitely a banger and will forever be remembered.
Now, there was NO way I could do this post and leave out the fact that Cardi B. has been continuously killing the fashion scene. During September’s NYFW, every media outlet had pics of her and Offset, showing up and showing out! From the VMA’s to Rihanna’s annual Diamond Ball, phenomenal designer Christian Siriano has been serving up custom looks for Cardi B., left and right.
I’m excited to see what more Cardi B. has in store in the near feature!
