It looks like Cardi B is taking her talents to the big screen. According to TMZ, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper has signed her first movie deal.
Unfortunately there’s no information about the role or movie Cardi will be acting in, but reports say she starts filming in March. With that said, it’s unclear how much Cardi is getting paid, but sources say the Bronx rapper had to turn down other opportunities that month that would’ve made her between $100K-$200K. So if that’s any indication, Cardi is probably getting hefty paycheck in order to not care about that couple hundred thousand just left on the table.
Cardi transitioning to the big screen shouldn’t be much of a surprise to fans. The NYC spitter has exploded into a mainstream star this past year and is arguably the hottest thing in all of music. So you had to figure it was only a matter of time before she got her acting skills on and got a movie role.
This report comes in the midst of Cardi’s historic run in the music scene as her latest feature on Bruno Mars’ “Finesse” remix just matched a chart record that was last accomplished by the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. In case you missed it, it’s only the second time in the Billboard’s history that a single has gone from No. 35 all the way to No. 3; the other act to accomplish this was Michael Jackson with his 1991 hit “Black or White.” Let’s not forget that Cardi is also responseble for a couple other tracks in the top 10, including Migos’ “Motorsports” & G-Eazy’s “No Limit” to name a couple.
We’ll continue to keep you posted on any details about Cardi’s forthcoming movie role as it becomes available. What type of role do you hope to see Cardi in?
