Cardi B and Kehlani are tangled up in telephone cords and standing in phone booths in the sassy new video for their collab single “Ring.” The video dropped on Aug. 20 and finds the pair of singers wearing platinum blonde wigs and shiny silver dresses while they’re anxiously waiting for a love to call.
The “Bodak Yellow” songstress is frustrated with a lack of attention and commitment from her man as she raps “Ring on my phone, ring on my finger/You acting like you ain’t tryin’ to do either” and Kehlani joins in again with “You don’t hit my line no more/You don’t make it ring, ring, ring.”
The sultry, angst-filled track hails from Cardi B’s Billboard 200 chart-topping debut album Invasion of Privacy. “Ring” hit the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot R & B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, coming in at No. 19 upon the album’s release. The song is slated to be released on urban contemporary radio on Aug. 28 as the album’s fifth single, after the fourth single “I Like It,” which is a Bad Bunny and J Balvin collab Billboard Hot 100 chart topper.
Cardi B has been busy since the birth of her first child Kulture Kiari in July. She recently opened the 2018 MTV VMA Awards by taking the stage while holding something wrapped in a blanket and announcing she had a surprise. While the audience (including her hubby Offset) thought she was about to reveal her new baby, the rapper opened the blanket to reveal a VMA Moon Person trophy. The proud new mom took home three awards for Best New Artist, Best Collaboration (for “Dinero” with Jennifer Lopez and DJ Khaled) and Song of the Summer for “I Like It.”
Watch the entire “Ring” video above. Cardi B will be performing in a star-studded lineup at Tropicalia Music & Taco Festival which takes place at Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach, California on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4 (Tickets). Stay tuned to AXS for Cardi B and Kehlani updates.
