What started off simply as a joke on social media is now making its way to the top of the iTunes charts. An Instagram video from Cardi B’s account, @iamcardib, about the pandemic Coronavirus went around different social media platforms due to Cardi making us laugh, like she usually does. Cardi’s original video stated, “A lot of you motherf***ers think it’s a joke like I was thinking, right? Just because you think you’re immune to it, guess what? Your pocket ain’t, bi**h,”
“A lot of shit comes from motherfucking China, bitch. So if you’re wondering why your motherf***ing weave or your Fashion Nova motherf***ing packages haven’t arrived, guess what, bi**h? Coronavirus! Coronavirus! I’m telling you, shi* is real. Shi* is getting real. Bi**h, I’m scared.”
iMarkkeyz, a remixer and producer, took a snippet from Cardi’s video to the next level by adding a beat and remixing it into a song, he also added a video. This then blew up and even caught other celebrity’s attention such as Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson.
Overnight the song found its way up the iTunes charts. Cardi B is now in search of royalties from the song, especially after she heard it being played in a nightclub.
