Every major city in the world has a reputation – a generalization of the character of the city which may or may not be a 100 percent accurate, but is at least on the nose enough to make its inhabitants wince (unless, of course, this reputation is a nice one).
London is filled with very polite rich people who enjoy selling multimillion dollar apartments to oligarchs and absolutely despise talking to strangers. Lagos is overwhelming and full of innovators who may or may not be Nigerian Prince scammers. Paris is filled with snobs who love making love, drinking wine, and talking with a cigarette dangled between the fingers. Los Angeles is filled with Hollywood hangers-on who do a lot of drugs and love to surf.
And then there's New York...
Ah... what do you say about New York?
New York has a (well-earned) reputation for being a tough city, which means New Yorkers have a reputation for being tough.rude. And aggressive – but very fashion-forward (well, the rich New Yorkers, anyway). The point here is, New York doesn't have the most salubrious reputation.
But then, no one expects it to.take entire slices of pizza for lunch?
New York has a certain je ne sais quoi, which spurs people to be their best, their most artistic.
She is, however, top in the lists of the most dominant musicians of the year.
The line "I don't dance now, I make money moves" is one of those chest-thumping declarations that hypes up everyone that hears it.
"Bodak Yellow" is so dominant, it's giving the year's biggest song "Despacito" a run for its money and getting Victoria's Secret models into trouble.
there’s a really funny video of VS models singing Bodak Yellow and when the N word popped up all of em sang it but… https://t.co/2CKP2PBSoT— anarkee (@anarkee)1512014447.0
"Bodak Yellow" is so hot, everyone loves it... despite the fact that no one knows what the phrase "Bodak Yellow" actually means. And by everyone, we mean New Yorkers.On Sunday Dec 3, 2017, something very strange happened. Someone started blasting "Bodak Yellow" in the 42ndstreet 7th Avenue station. Instead of telling the presumptuous fool to pipe down in no uncertain terms, as New Yorkers will, the subway riders did something strange instead.
They started dancing.That's right. New Yorkers in the middle of a New York City train station began dancing to a song instead of shouting at the person playing it.
It was a miracle for the ages, it was the miracle that was Cardi B, a woman who unexpectedly worked her way from being a stripper to becoming one of the most influential musical forces in the space of a few months.

Cardi B’s record-breaking hit was inspired by [rapper] Kodak Black, specifically his 2014 song “No Flockin.’" Cardi borrows his flow, and named the track “Bodak Yellow," changing Kodak to “Bodak" because of the “B" in Cardi B. “My sister’s name, her name is Hennessy, so everybody used to be like Bacardi to me… then I shortened it to Cardi B, and the ‘B’ stands for whatever …depending on the day," she explained on The Wendy Williams Show in July.
