First-time mom-to-be rapper Cardi B made her Coachella debut over the weekend and played a few tracks of her recently released hit album Invasion of Privacy which debuted number one on the Billboard 200.
During the Love and Hip Hop alum’s set that featured a orange back drop with her and her acrobatic dancers dressed in all white, the “Bodak Yellow” singer brought out a host of other popular rappers and hip hop artists and singers to guest perform their respective tracks on her album: Chance the Rapper, 21 Savage, YG, Kehlani and G-Eazy (playing “No Limit”)
The Bronx native earlier revealed that while she received $70,000 for each of her two performances this weekend, she shelled out an additional $300,000 or more to pay for the set, dancers, crew and other production costs that the Coachella team did not pay for, added to the lost income potential due to a non-compete/performance clause the festival attached to her contract stopping her from performing within a radius of the festival for a period of time. Wow!
Not only did she make history recently for beating Taylor Swift’s streaming record, being the first woman to be on 5 songs on Billboard’s Top 10 R&B/Hip Hop charts and the first female solo artist to land on number one of the Billboard 100 since Lauryn Hill, but she also made history as the first host and musical performer to announce her pregnancy on SNL (Saturday Night Live) last week! This mama’s star is meteoric!
AND…she twerked and dropped it like no other pregnant performer before her! Another Record! Watch footage of her set below.
