Cardi B, and the lucky guests at a Los Angeles Fashion Nova event Wednesday, (May 9), took a trip down the “Old Town Road.” Bardi, 26, invited overnight sensation, Lil Nas X, to perform his Billboard Hot 100 single at her Fashion Nova Party With Cardi event.
The event is in celebration of Cardi’s upcoming clothing line with the fast fashion company. Prior to Lil Nas X’s performance, guests were privy to Bardi’s “I Like It” and a surprise appearance from Blueface to perform the pair’s remix of “Thotiana.”
As Lil Nas X swaggered across the stage in his cowboy boots and hat, Cardi praised the young artist for accomplishing the feat of getting the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Its muthaf*cking hard to get a No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. That sh*t is hard as f*ck,” Cardi said. “So every single time I see somebody getting that spot I be like ‘Damn I’m proud of you b*tch. I’m proud of you n*gga.’ When I got my first No. 1, I cried like a muthaf*cka. So I wanna say that I’m so proud of this young guy who’s about to come up and f*ck up the stage because his No. 1 is still No. 1 after they tried to deny his muthaf*cking entry.”
Later Lil Nas X took to his Twitter to thank Cardi for bringing him out, “thank you cardi b!!” Make sure to watch Cardi and Lil Nas X perform the viral country-trap song.
