Does Cardi B Have the Lyrical Prowess and Appeal to Sustain Meteoric Rise?
Written by Tamara M. on 3 January 2018
To say 2017 was Cardi B’s year is an understatement as the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” alum blew up the charts with her chart-scorching “Bodak Yellow.” And, 2018 isn’t looking half-shabby as the round-the-way NY femcee makes a little history as the only rapper and only third artist ever to have her first three Billboard Hot 100 singles chill in the top 10 simultaneously. She joins the likes of legends like The Beatles and Ashanti.
While we want to congratulate Bartier Cardi on her accomplishments and the history she’s shattered, we’d be amiss if we didn’t ask: Does Cardi have the lyrical prowess and appeal to sustain her meteoric rise? Let’s be honest — many people viewed her as another entry in the staggering list of one-hit wonders who wouldn’t be able to match the success of “Bodak Yellow,” and score another hit if her life depended on it. But, Miss Cardi didn’t let up and is going strong, but for how long? Will she go down in history as one of the greats? Or will we be wondering what happened to Cardi by the end of the year? Tell us how you really feel.
