Cardi B to Join Bruno Mars for “Finesse (Remix)”
Since teaming up with G-Eazy on "No Limit," Cardi B has had a knack for successful collaborations, and the New York rapper is trying to capture the magic again, teaming up with Bruno Mars for the upcoming remix to his song "Finesse."
On Wednesday (Jan. 3), the 24K Magic singer hopped on Instagram to make the official announcement, also revealing the song will drop on Jan. 4 at midnight. "Start your 2018 with Big Bronx Boogie Herself @iamcardib and me Midnight Tonight EST #Finesse," he wrote in the caption.
A standout track on Mars' 2016 album, the new jack swing-inspired song is straight out of the 1990s with its drum machine beat and synthesizer melody. Like the original song, the upcoming remix also gets the 1990s treatment on the cover art, which features Cardi B with big hoop earrings, a backwards hat and tons of gold jewelry. Mars' ’90s swag is also in full effect on the cover, as the singer rocks a long-sleeve shirt under a striped short-sleeve hoodie and gold chains.
While the success of the upcoming remix is yet to be seen, Cardi B has already tied a Billboard feat that has only been accomplished by two artists.
On Tuesday (Jan. 2), Billboard reported the "Bodak Yellow" rapper tied The Beatles and Ashanti as the only musical acts to place their first three Hot 100 singles in the top 10 of the chart. The three songs that helped Cardi achieve the feat include G-Eazy's "No Limit," the Migos and Nicki Minaj-assisted "MotorSport" and Bardi's own single, "Bodak Yellow."
The rapper celebrated the news on Instagram, saying, "What a great way to start my Year.Thank you Lord .Only you and i know how much i pray to you. These last few weeks been too much for me but my Lord always find a way to uplift me .Thank you to my fans ,DJS ,Team for the support."
