Our Thoughts on Cardi B & Bruno Mars bringing us 90's Old School Vibes in 'Finesse'

Cardi B is one of most well rounded rappers of our generation, she can literally do it all. She now released this remixed old school vibe track with Bruno Mars, and with it sick visuals. It was originally Bruno Mars' song from his album 24k magic released in 2016. When I first saw the video on Twitter, I immediately fucked with it, she looks like a NY 90's queen with her short shorts, colourful nd funky ass leather jacket, snapback and gold hoops that are bigger than my future. We are HERE for this Cardi!!! Her personality really shines bright throughout the entire video. 

On top of that, the song itself is a fuckin bop and the balance between them is a perfect mix. You got that badass rhythm Cardi B delivers and Bruno Mars' sweet sweet voice giving me goosebumps. THIS MAN CAN FUCKN SING!

She really finessed her way to the TOP.

It’s my big Bronx boogie, got all them girls shook
My big, fat ass got all them boys hooked

I went from dollar bills, now we poppin’ rubber bands
Bruno sang to me while I do my money dance like
Aye, flexin’ on the gram like (aye!)
Hit the Lil Jon, okay (okay), okay (okay)
Oh, yeah we drippin’ in finesse, getting paid (ow!)

"Cardi B has a background basically anyone can get behind. She's worked her way up to the top through a combination of blunt determination, a ton of charisma, and, of course, a huge helping of skill. From stripper to social media star to reality TV personality to literal chart-topping rapper — in fact, the first female rapper to reach that spot in 19 years — Cardi B has paid her dues, and she's never lost her personality while doing it. Her openness and genuineness, her unfiltered diatribes that launched her to fame on Instagram, and just the clear sense that this is a woman who truly loves what she does is all evident in both the "Finesse" video and in the song's lyrics." -Bustle.com
