Bodak yellow is officially one of the biggest songs of the summer, and it’s now poised to get even bigger. Today, Cardi drops off a Spanish remix of the track, and she’s brought fellow New York City-based Dominican rapper Messiah along for the ride. Check out the remix below.
The new music finds Cardi, who’s Dominican and Trinidadian, spitting most of her original “Bodak Yellow” verse in Spanish. If you aren’t familiar with the language, you’ll definitely have some trouble understanding what she’s saying. One thing that’s universal, though, is charisma, and Cardi’s irrepressible swagger drips through the remix just as it did on the original.
Messiah, who’s one of the biggest names in the Latin trap movement, more than holds his own on the remix, too, delivering his own technically sound, confidence-infused verse onto the ultra-popular track. We don’t think it will take too long before we hear this remix everywhere.
“Bodak Yellow” has proven to be Cardi’s biggest song to date. While the former Love & Hip Hop star had already established herself as a legit rapper, this song has elevated her to the level of a true rap star. Recently, “Bodak Yellow” cracked the top 10 of Billboard’s 200 chart just days after becoming the highest-charting song by a female rapper since Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” Here’s to more success for Cardi.
