There is one thing that can bring New Yorkers together in the nightmare that is the New York City Subway system: Cardi B.
On Sunday, a Twitter user @mattwhitlockPM posted a video of MTA riders having an impromptu dance party to the rapper’s hit song “Bodak Yellow” at the Time Square station. In the video, people of all ages are seen dancing, singing, and having a blast underground.
“Play ‘Bodak Yellow’ anywhere and a party will start, guaranteed,” @mattwhitlockPM captioned the video above. “@iamcardib brings the people together. #nycsubway”
“Bodak Yellow” launched the newly-engaged Bronx native into the spotlight earlier in 2017, and eventually dethroned Taylor Swift’s hit “Look What You Made Me Do” at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in the fall. After ruling the chart for a third consecutive week in October, “Bodak Yellow” became longest-reigning chart-topper on the Hot 100 for an unaccompanied female rapper. Lauryn Hill previously held the record with 1998’s “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
Cardi’s jam has not only brought New Yorkers together, it’s also tripled business for her dentist and is up for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the Grammy Awards in February. And who knows? We may even hear it at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming Royal Wedding, if Cardi has her way. The rapper’s new single “Cartier Cardi” is due out on Dec. 15.
