Cardi B is having a hell of a year. Quickly bouncing back from giving birth to Kulture, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper has been tearing down stages all across the world. On Thursday, November 15th, just one day after her Fashion Nova party, the New York native teamed up with Pandora and T-Mobile for an exclusive performance at Academy Nightclub in Hollywood, with opener Jhene Aiko.
Power 106 was in attendance for the LIVE IN LA event, which hailed an outdoor area with a bar, photo booth, and sitting areas for people who needed a breather from the mayhem inside. The venue formerly known as Create was overcrowded with fans, to the point where even the VIP section was even a sweatbox. Waiting patiently for the show to begin, Cardi B exploded onto the stage with “Get Up 10.” Next, she reminded folks that every single song on her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, has gone Gold or Platinum, minus one: “Money Bag.” She didn’t understand why, because that’s one of her favorites.
Next was “No Limit,” “She Bad” featuring YG, “Motorsport,” and her new single “Money.” Cardi’s humor was present all throughout the set, as she joked about having a piece of celery stuck in her tooth and needing a toothpick.

“Drip” was next, before performing “Ring” and shouting out Kehlani who couldn’t be there because she’s having a baby. “Thru Your Phone” and “Be Careful” followed before she had to step away to fix her “pussy wedgie.” Cardi’s no filter personality is the reason we all love her.
In addition to playing hit records “Motorsport,” “I Like It,” and “Finesse” with Bruno Mars, Cardi performed “Foreva” and “Lick” for her day 1 fans. “Ran down on that bitch twice!”
Of course, “Bodak Yellow” was the grand finale, along with her most wild statement of the evening. With how hard she was going performing, she states, “I’m not going to be able to suck dick for a whole week!”
In addition, attendees were gifted with a portable phone charger upon walking in, and Coolhaus ice cream upon leaving. We love you Cardi B!
