How Cardi B Created ‘Bodak Yellow’ | Billboard | How It Went Down


– What inspired “Bodak
Yellow” is, you know, I wanted to do a song that is like, you know what, I’m in a good
place in my life right now, and I want to stunt. I always record in the
nighttime, and everything, always record, like, around one o’clock to nine o’clock in the morning. I told my producer to send me the beat. I heard the beat, (“Bodak Yellow”) I heard the beat. On the airplane, I keep writing to it, I keep writing to it. Every single time that I feel like I wrote, like, something
that I was like, “Oooh!” ♪ (“Bodak Yellow”) And
I pay my mama’s bills ♪ And then it’s like, I like to talk shit about people that used to talk shit. Like, yeah, I fixed my teeth, and it wasn’t cheap neither, bitch! Like, what’s up? (claps hands) What’s good? What’s really, really good? You know what I’m saying? I felt it in my soul, like yo, this song is going to be so popping. Cause I was recording in there like this, ♪ (“Bodak Yellow”) And
I pay my mama’s bills ♪ ♪ I ain’t got no time to chill ♪ Like, (claps hands) that when I was recording it, every bitch that I don’t
like came to my head. Every bitch that I hate came to my head. And I was picturing me rapping it to them. ♪ (“Bodak Yellow”) I need
to let all these hoes know ♪ ♪ That none of they niggas is safe. ♪ (slaps legs loudly)
(audience claps) It is important to have it on the summer, because the summertime, this is the time that you flex, you know what I’m saying? This is the time even, when broke niggas get rent whips. Everybody wanna front. I want somebody to get they
new car or they new red bottoms and be like, “Oh my god, ♪ (“Bodak Yellow”) “Said little bitch, ♪ ♪ “You can’t fuck with me ♪ ♪ “If you wanted to.” ♪ Like, if you don’t feel it in your soul, if you don’t hear that song going to your ear, to your
heart, to your asshole, it’s impossible. And, that’s what I did. I made a song like that. “Bodak Yellow” (mumbles) popping, baby. And, look at that, ♪ It hit the charts, ♪ ♪ It hit the charts ♪ – [Crew] So, why is it-
– ♪ Yeah ♪ – [Crew] Why is it important-
– ♪ Yeah ♪ – [Crew] For you to have this-
– ♪ Yeah ♪ – ♪ Yeah, yeah ♪ – [Crew] Why is it important
– ♪ Yeah ♪ – [Crew] to you to have this?

  4. She doesn’t write her music do your research people stop hopping on the trending fame bandwagon this isn’t a creative artist having ppl write your raps

  5. That's my kinda girl bitch slap the haters and make money for it "Hahaha stupid haters,"
    I'd do the same lol. Cardi keeps it real while cracking people up

  6. She's acting like she wrote it herself but this song had 5 more writers on it. Like… Whatever, I guess.

  7. You are a bitch I hope everything falls apart for you. Black swan is a better person than you and I wish her success
