DENMARK — Straight out of Bronx, 25-year-old Cardi B is undoubtedly the new queen of hip-hop, topping the charts with singles such as Bodak Yellow and Finesse. The latter with fellow Roskilde Festival headliner Bruno Mars.
Grammy nominee Cardi B’s rise to stardom has been unconventional: she went from gang member to stripper, becoming a local celebrity, social media personality and reality tv star before turning to music. She is the first female rapper in 19 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the first ever to have three singles in the top 10 at the same time.
Several hit singles and mixtapes into her brief career, Cardi B is already a bonafide star – and she hasn’t even released her much anticipated first studio album.
