Cardi B tweeted the lyrics to Gia Giudice’s epic hit “Sad Song,” and the reality star didn’t waste any time answering and demanding a “meet up.”
Cardi B, 28, expressed her admiration for Gia Giudice, 20, in an eye-catching tweet on March 26. The rapper posted the lyrics to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s “Sad Song,” which was featured on the reality show, and she called the shout-out “unreal.” The Comments by the Bravo Instagram account captured the online conversation.
Cardi tweeted, “Thinking about deleting this app until I drop my next little project…but then again, where I am going to hear ‘wakin up in the morning thinking about so many things I just wish things will get better?”
“This is unreal!! CARDI, I’m in Bahamas; let’s meet up,” Gia replied.
Following the release of Cardi and Gia’s remarks, social media users couldn’t help but express their expectations that the two ladies would finally get together, with some even suggesting a collaboration. “IMMEDIATELY send us “Gia’s Sad Song (the Cardi B Remix).” “I’ll even take a Milania [Giudice] feature/a verse of ‘Can’t Wait to Grow Up,'” wrote one user, while another exclaimed, “Please make this happen!”
“Put Gia on a WAP @iamcardib remix. “I’m glad so many people finally appreciate gias sad song as we do,” a third user said, while a fourth Gia fan gushed, “I’m glad so many people finally appreciate gias sad song as we do.” Many others remarked on Gia’s talent and expressed delight at her recognition.
Cardi’s appreciation for Gia’s song stems from a collection of lyrics she tweeted that went viral on TikTok. Many users used the sound clip from the song to post videos in which they remembered some of their most humiliating moments, and it quickly became a viral phenomenon. Whether it was recalling cringe-worthy middle school photoshoots or showing off clips of stressful work, several people have shown the strength of words in communicating their emotions.
Gia’s song debuted on the RHONJ in 2011, so it’s a definite throwback. It’s an oldie but a goodie!
Cardi B Also Slams Rumors About Her Latest Single ‘Up’
Cardi B slammed rumors that the popularity of her latest single ‘Up’ was fueled by ‘payola,’ or the payment of bribes in exchange for increased radio airplay.
On Instagram, the rapper posted a video about her chart ranking with the caption: “It’s sad that when I win, people gotta scramble with lies for my success. People come out of Amazon trucks and ambulances dancing [to] as though they hadn’t seen anyone.”
“They love to run with the ‘Payola’ [speculation] to make themselves feel better,” the 28-year-old continued. “Mind you, I didn’t debut at number one because of my low radio play [for “Up”], and “WAP” barely made radio because it was so overt and still made number one.”
Cardi B backed up her claim with an image of a list of recent radio play numbers, which she shared in the same Instagram carousel.
Last month, Cardi B’s single “Up” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her only the second female rapper to do so, behind only Lauryn Hill, who set the record with her smash hit “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998.
The rapper also responded to social media critics who said she couldn’t have a solo Billboard chart-topper without working with other artists.
Cardi B’s latest single ‘Up’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on March 26 and has stayed there for six weeks since its release on February 5.
Grammys Took Its Time To Send The Sensation Back To No.1
“Up” is the rapper’s fifth number-one song, but it took a Grammy nomination to get him back on top this time.
The unpredictability of the Grammy Bump game is what makes it so enjoyable. You never know who a standout performance would have going into the show, and it’s always anyone’s guess what will entice Americans to download or stream the bejesus out of what they just learned when they leave. For example, Lady Gaga’s success of her brand-new single “Born This Way” at the 2011 Grammy Awards was entirely predictable, and the song went on to top the Hot 100 the following week.
What was surprising was that the little-known Mumford & Sons, who had received no Grammys that night and had only played in a hoedown-style medley of bands supporting Bob Dylan, would end up with a career-making album sales boost that they would feast on for the next decade. (Can’t say it worked out, including maybe the Mumfords… But it is still entertaining.)
Most people’s Grammy Bump money was on Dua Lipa this year. This was, admittedly, inspired thought on my side, as I am a vocal supporter of Lipa. Fans thought Lipa’s lauded success of her current hit “Levitating” with DaBaby would levitate it onto the Hot 100 even though her killer Future Nostalgia stood little chance against Taylor Swift’s deserving Album of the Year front-runner (and eventual winner) Folklore.
