Rap superstar Cardi B celebrated her record-breaking Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo concert attendance in a video posted on March 2. She also paid tribute to the late Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, who once held that record.
As part of the all-star Rodeo Houston line-up, Cardi B took over the NRG Stadium on March 1 with her biggest hits. The Rodeo Houston announced that she broke the record for the highest turnout for one of their concerts with 75,580 people, besting country music icon Garth Brooks' previous record by three people. In her lifetime, Selena broke that record three years in a row up until her final concert at the Astrodome in February 1995.
"I'm honored for beating the Houston Rodeo show," Cardi B said in her video. "I was so nervous to perform in front of 75,000+ people. I love you b**ch." She pointed to a picture of Selena in a purple outfit from one of her Rodeo Houston concerts. Cardi, who once called herself the "trap Selena," revealed the outfit that inspired her look in the music video for "Please Me" with Bruno Mars. She rounded out the video by singing a bit of Selena's eternal classic "Como La Flor" (Like a Flower). Cardi's tribute followed other tributes last week from fellow Houston Rodeo headliners Kacey Musgraves and Prince Royce.
"Please Me" featuring Mars is out now on iTunes and Apple Music. No word yet if the song will lead to a new album from Cardi B.
