Cardi B joined James Corden for an epic installment of Carpool Karaoke on “The Late Late Show” which aired last night (Dec. 17) on CBS. Who would have thought the Grammy-nominated rapper was going to get and give some important lessons during her musical ride?
Cardi B lit up the passenger seat in her bright yellow outfit to pay a chic fashion tribute to her breakout single “Bodak Yellow,” which launched her prolific career. The Bronx native superstar also dropped some colorful cuss words during the segment. Once, as she explained, “At first people didn’t want to pay my d*mn music on the radio.” She kept working till she found the song that would properly grab their attention.
It’s safe to say since that day, Cardi B has had no trouble at all grabbing anyone’s attention, most of all her scores of loyal fans. The pair kicks off their music set with “Bodak Yellow.” During the course of the journey, Cardi listed many makes of cars she owns (like a Lambo, a Lamborghini truck, a Bentley truck and a Maybach, to name few). She also admitted she can’t drive.
Ever-the-gentleman James offered to give his famous passenger a driving lesson at a parking lot filled with cones and parking flags. Cardi slid behind the wheel and James told her to “slalom” through the obstacles. To no one’s surprise, she proceeded to knock a great number of them down before bailing and turning the car back over to James.
In other segment highlights, Cardi gives a shout out to some kids on the playground and James takes her to the Culver City Senior Center and they crash a dance class. Clad with a boombox, James cranks up “I Like It” while Cardi sings and dances some salsa-style moves with her captive crowd. One adoring elderly man boldly asked, “Are you looking for a significant other? Are you available?” A shocked Cardi recovered for a split second before politely saying, “Sure.”
