A pregnant Cardi B took Coachella by storm.
Cardi B made her Coachella debut Sunday night with a performance that did not disappoint. The rapper kicked off her set at the annual California music festival’s first weekend, bringing out Chance the Rapper, YG, 21 Savage, Kehlani, and G-Eazy, and twerking while pregnant without skipping a beat.
“I’m running out of breath. You know my pregnant ass,” she joked onstage.
Last week, the 25-year-old rapper revealed she spent $300,000 out of pocket to vamp up her Coachella set— more than 3x what she earned from this one performance. A compilation of photos and video from Cardi’s social media and old footage from her days as a dancer were projected on a mega-screen while backup dancers performed pole tricks across the stage.
Bardi channeled TLC, donning Left Eye‘s signature ponytails and an all-white sporty, chic fit reminiscent of the ensembles the iconic group wore to the 1996 Grammys.
The “Bodack Yellow” rapper ran through renditions of “Bartier Cardi,” “She Bad,” “No Limit,” “She Bad,” “Ring” all off her debut album, Invasion of Privacy,
