Best Cardi B Songs of All Time – Top 10 Tracks

Cardi B – from the strip bar into the limelight of show business

Cardi B’s biography reads almost like a typical “American way of life” story. However, her professional career did not begin as a dishwasher, but as a stripper. The end as a successful rapper and millionaire fits the cliché again.

She was born Belcalis Almanzar in 1992 and grew up in the Bronx, New York. Her parents come from the Dominican Republic and Trinidad and Tobago. Incidentally, she owes her name to her father’s fondness for high-proof drinks. While her sister Hennessy officially bears the name of the famous cognac, Cardi B is merely a nickname derived from the drink brand Bacardi.

As a child, she spent a lot of time with her grandmother, from whom she also inherited the strong accent. Her life as a teenager and young adult is always accompanied by unsteady jumps. She attends the Renaissance High School for Musical Theater & Technology as a teenager intermittently but not with any consistency. At times, she also works in a supermarket. This is her last job before she starts as a stripper. She justifies the step into this shady milieu with the fact that it was a way for her to escape her domestic and financial misery.

Her musical career gets rolling in 2016 and leads her very quickly far up. Already in May 2017 she was awarded at the BET AWARDS as best newcomer and best female hip-hop artist. The real commercial success was then also not long in coming. With the single “Bodak Yellow” she reached number one on the Billboard 100 in the USA and increasing attention in other countries.

In the meantime, she has completely established herself at the top of the rap charts and is one of the most successful artists in the scene worldwide. This is impressively proven by the success of her studio album “Invasion of Privacy” released in 2018. With it, she set a new chart record and replaced Beyoncé from the top. All 14 tracks from the album were simultaneously listed in the top 50 of the American Billboard streaming charts.

Such big hits in such a short time and in such a concentration no other artist could show so far. This clearly proves that a look at the ten best songs of the artist is always worthwhile.

10. „Bartier Cardi” ft. 21 Savage

Listen on Amazon Music

In this song, Cardi B is vocally supported by Atlanta-born rapper 21 Savage. It was released in 2017 as the second single from her album “Invasion of Privacy”. It is one of Cardi B’s best songs and was the fourth single to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard charts. The official music video was also highly praised and received a nomination for Best Hip-Hop Video 2018.

9. „Motorsport“

Listen on Amazon Music

For this song Cardi B came together for the first time with the rapper trio Migos and rapper Nicki Minaj. While the rumor mill reports problems between the two female rap artists, the connection with the trio seems to work well. After all, it has resulted in the liaison with Offset, one of the three Migos members. The single was released in 2017 and was a huge commercial success in the US. Number 6 on the charts and three platinum awards are impressive proof of this. However, the song went largely unnoticed in non-American countries.

8. „Drip“ ft. Migos

Listen on Amazon Music

Drip comes on the heels of Cardi B’s reunion with Migos in April 2018. The single is the promotional single from the just-released album “Invasion of Privacy.” Some critics call the record harsh and boastful. Nevertheless, it reached the top 20 of the Billboard charts in America and also opened the way for the rapper to enter the European charts.

7. „Get Up 10”

Listen on Amazon Music

“Get Up 10” is the first track on the album “Invasion of Privacy”. The song introduces listeners to the complex world of Cardi B. She tells her story and her rise to rap stardom completely unfiltered and without retrospective regret. The aggressive, energetic beat supports her candid storytelling style. The song achieved gold status and mid-chart placements.

6. „Ring ft. Kehlani“

Listen on Amazon Music

In the song “Ring” Cardi B is accompanied by the American singer Kehlani. As the sixth single from the album “Invasion of Privacy”, the single reaches upper positions in the hip-hop and middle positions in the general charts. It is certified twice platinum in the United States and gold in Canada. “Ring” is considered one of the songs of the rapper, which most reflects the feelings of the fan base.

5. „Money”

Listen on Amazon Music

Cardi B released “Money” in October 2018. The song is an appeal to everyone to pick up their well-deserved money. References to her own story are not missing, of course. This is impressively shown in the accompanying video. In it, she can be seen in various roles at different venues such as the bank, the museum or the strip club, where there is money to be made. The song also made the money ring in the cash register commercially. Top placements overseas and in the worldwide charts prove this.

4. „Press“

Listen on Amazon Music

Almost brand new is the single “Press”, in which Cardi B relentlessly deals with her history, her current life and the treatment by the media. The song was released in May 2019 and achieved very good rankings in the American charts. It has not really been able to reach the European market yet.

3. „Please me“

Listen on Amazon Music

This duet of Cardi B and Bruno Mars from February 2019 can not be missing in the hit list, of course. It is the second collaboration of the two artists after Finesse. The song is certainly one of the best songs in which a female rapper and a singer perform together. The dominant and direct style of Cardi B and the gentle to sometimes begging vocals of Bruno Mars complement each other perfectly. The single immediately entered the charts at number 5 after its release and eventually reached number 3.

2. „I like it“

Listen on Amazon Music

“I like it” is one of the most successful and arguably the best song from the album “Invasion of Privacy”. It was released as a single in May 2018 and took off at number one on the charts in the US. The song also reached top rankings in Europe and other continents. Perhaps this is related to its particular blend of trap beat and salsa music. This makes it interesting not only for proven rap fans, but also for listeners who like spirited yet melodic music.

1. „Bodak Yellow“

Listen on Amazon Music

Bodak Yellow” marked the beginning of Cardi B’s unstoppable rise to fame, which is why the song is rightfully at number one in the featured Top 10. It was released in June 2017 as the musician’s major-label debut single and stormed the charts in the U.S. and Canada. This made Cardi B only the fifth female rapper ever and the second solo artist to make this leap. The song was nominated for Grammy Awards and was named Single of the Year at the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards and Favorite Song Rap/Hip-Hop Song at the 2018 American Music Awards.

Conclusion

Cardi B is living proof that energy, will and tenacity can produce a successful life despite poor conditions. Growing up in difficult financial and social circumstances, she takes flight. She takes a small detour from her occupation as a stripper to finally start as a rapper. She quickly becomes successful, thanks to her hard, powerful and energetic music and the open and direct lyrics.

After her start in 2016, she already landed her first number one hit in the USA in 2017 and became increasingly well-known in other continents and countries as well. In the time that followed, she produced hits non-stop and established herself permanently in the rap scene. The top ten of her best songs are an eloquent testimony to this. This hit list is only a suggestion. Everyone is welcome to decide for themselves which song is Cardi B’s best song for them.
