The Best ‘Bartier Cardi’ Lyrics and Reactions
Cardi B's single, "Bartier Cardi" featuring 21 Savage is here, and already people are reacting strongly. And by strongly, we mean trying to memorize the lyrics before New Year's Eve so that it can be recited at top decibels in the club.
So, in effort to assist in the effort to memorize the best lines, here's a little cheat sheet (lyrics courtesy of Genius).
With verse one, Cardi immediately gets it poppin'.
"Who get this mothafucker started? (Cardi)/Who took your bitch out to party? (Cardi)/I took your bitch in the party (Cardi)/Who that be fly as a Martian? (Cardi)?"
Maybe you can substitute your name with Cardi? But only if it rhymes.
Later in verse one, she warns smarmy people to stay out of her way because jealousy is never a thing, and she'll moonwalk through your crew.
"Them diamonds gon' hit like a bitch on a bitch ass bitch/Bitch, you a wannabe Cardi/Red bottom M.J. moonwalk on a bitch/Moonwalkin' through your clique
I'm moonwalkin' in the 6/Sticky with the kick, moonrocks in this s---"
As for the hook— it's long. At some point, you'll definitely need to know the whole thing but for the first few times, you can mumble and then blurt out the following lines loudly to trick bystanders.
"Your bitch wanna party with Cardi
Cartier Bardi in a 'Rari (21)
Diamonds all over my body (Cardi)
Shinin' all over my body (my body)"
And then later...
"I go insane, insane/I drop a check on the chain/F--- up a check in the plane/Cardi took your man, you upset, uh/Cardi got rich, they upset, yeah/Cardi put the p----y on Offset (Say what?)/Cartier, Cardi B brain on Offset"
And finally, the third verse, which seems to be a crowd favorite.
"They say you basic/I flooded the Rollie with diamonds/I flooded the Patek and bracelet/I got your bitch and she naked/Ice on the cake, when I bake it/I'm switchin' lanes in the Range/Swap out the d--- for the brain/Swap out your bitch for your main/Swap out the trap for the fame/Ice on them Carti B Cartier frames"
People are already suggesting that "Bartier Cardi" is better than "Bodak Yellow." While we have yet to see if matches the monster success of that track, one thing is clear—Cardi is making money moves.
