Songfacts®:

  • The opening track from Invasion of Privacy is a rags-to-riches story that finds Cardi B telling us how far she's come since her stripper days.

    Look, they gave a bitch two options: strippin' or lose
    Used to dance in a club right across from my school
    I said "dance" not "f--k", don't get it confused
    Had to set the record straight 'cause bitches love to assume
    Mama couldn't give it to me, had to get at Sue's


    Money was hard to come by in Cardi's early years and she turned to stripping to make ends meet at Sue's Rendezvous, the gentleman's club in Mount Vernon, New York.
  • The song title references Cardi B's resilience in those difficult early days as in "Knock me down nine times, but I get up (in) ten."
