Cardi B has just revealed that she didn't always aspire to anyone, but now that she does, those people are Rihanna and Jay-Z, no less.
the rapper shared who were biggest influences are at the moment and more interestingly, the fact that she didnt always cite prominent figures when asked who she looked up to. Cardi said, When I came to the game and people used to be like, Who do you look up to? I always used to say, I dont look up to nobody, because I didnt really understand the game and I only feel like I got influenced by the people that was around me. Continuing on with her particularly rational response, she said, But now that Im at the level that Im at, one of my biggest influences is Rihanna and Jay-Z. And Im not just saying it to kiss ass or anything. I just feel like theyre so influential because Rihanna comes from a country, a Caribbean country, that my parents came from and shes a whole billionaire. As per NME, Rihannas Savage X Fenty lingerie empire has reached an equity worth $1 billion dollars, which was reported by Forbes back in February. As of May last year, NME also reported that Rihanna had become the worlds richest female musician. So yeah, aspiring to match the affluence of Rihannais pretty logical. Cardi continued in the interview, For her to make her business so big and be a billionaire, thats what I strive to be. Thats what I want. I want to be a billion-dollar woman. I want to build a huge brand. Speaking on looking up to Jay-Z, its their similarly shared roots that make him an idol for her. Hes from the hood and this mans a whole billionaire. And thats just all about strategy and thats just all about shaking hands, thats just all about putting plans together. Watch the music video for Up by Cardi B. Trending
