After the success of “Bodak Yellow,” everyone has been on the edge of their seats waiting for Cardi B to come up with her next big thing. Well, in the build up to her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, she dropped the video for “Bartier Cardi.”
This new aesthetic is quite the departure from the “Bodak Yellow” video with a lot of vibrant stylized colors, pretty clothing and notable lack of camels.
The top of the video sets the tone with a series of nicely dressed young women counting bills. It’s a mood, for sure. We also get a scene of greased up shirtless men nodding along to the beat, as well as a tied up 21 Savage, who is featured on the track.
Offset also makes a guest appearance in the video, getting physical with Cardi in the back of a car which makes sense given that he’s mentioned in the lyrics and he works under Quality Control, the management that Cardi B just signed to.
The online reactions to the “Bartier Cardi” video have been pretty mixed. On the positive side, we have people praising the looks she was serving in the video.

Then we also have someone calling it a cheap version of Beyoncé’s “Partition” video.
