2018 Grammy nominated hip-hop phenomenon Cardi B will perform in New Zealand for the first time on 19th May at Auckland’s Spark Arena.
Rising from internet icon and star of VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop: New York, Cardi B signed to Atlantic Records in 2016 and quickly became a pop culture superstar and critically acclaimed chart topping rapper.
In 2016 the Bronx native unleashed her debut mixtape Gangsta Bitch Music Vol 1, followed in 2017 by Gangsta Bitch Music Vol 2, and recently, her hard-charging new single Bartier Cardi featuring 21 Savage.
Her breakthrough single Bodak Yellow (Money Moves) pulled an impressive 40 million streams in just one week, reaching #1 on Billboard Streaming Songs tally and making the track the highest charting single by any female rapper this year.
The companion visual is equally popular with over 350 million views via YouTube alone. It was greeted with wide-ranging media attention and reviews from publications including Rap-Up, Stereogum, Pitchfork, XXL and High Snobiety, which declared it “utterly fire.” The New York Times said the track was the “Rap Anthem of Summer 2017” and Vulture reported Cardi B the “Undisputed Artist of the Summer.”
