  • Cardi B geeks out in the third verse about meeting Beyoncé and her mother.

    I took pictures with Beyoncé, I met Mama Knowles
    I'm the rose that came from the concrete in the Rolls


    Cardi met Beyoncé and her mom, Tina Knowles at Jay-Z's Made in America Festival, in September 2017, the month that her breakthrough single "Bodak Yellow" first reached the Top 10 of the Hot 100. The Bronx rapper felt that her meeting with Beyoncé was a marker of having arrived as an artist.
