Cardi B is known for her aggressive flow and candid lyrics. The rapper recently proved that her music can be adapted to a wide range of audiences around the world. Cardi collaborated with Black country singer Jimmie Allen to present a remix of her 2020 hit, “Money,” with a classic southern twist.
The Bronx beauty has recently tapped a new country fanbase, in which she is fully immersing herself as an Atlanta resident. The Grammy winner collaborated with African American country singer Jimmie Allen to present a remix of her 2020 hit, “Money,” with that classic southern flare.
Entertainment Tonight debuted the video with the two collaborating artists, miraculously blending both genres in a surprise performance for her show “Cardi Tries” in a Western-style saloon in Los Angeles. Cardi B stated that this was her first pop-up performance since 2019, and she saved the experience for her series.
The WAP rapper and her celebrity sidekick learned how to line dance and ride a mechanical bull. As the episode came to a close, the two gave fans the big pay-off: a mashup of that club banger with Allen on guitar. Cardi belted out her verses in country-girl twang, and it was stellar.
This isn’t the first time Jimmie Allen has mixed genres, bringing people from Urban into his world. The Delaware native most recently appeared at the CMT Music Awards 2022, where he included Monica in his performance of “Pray” with Little Big Town.
Let’s see what Cardi has in store for us next. We’re not gonna lie that Cardi B killed this alternate version of a well-known track. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
