Cardi took to Twitter to share some facts about her video shoots, telling her fans: ‘Fun fact : Bodak Yellow music video cost me 15 thousand dollars .I was in Dubai and I said ….I gotta fly picture (videographer) out here …BOOM BOOM BANG ! Ya know the rest.’
When a fan responded: ‘Girl that’s a lot’, Cardi clarified: ‘Naaaa honey ….Money cost 400K, Please me Cost 900K, Wap Cost a M !’
She added: ‘Bartier [Cardi] was like 150K and I was pregnant so I was trying my best to conceal my tiny belly.
‘I felt uncomfortable in the car cause I really wanted to be sexy with offset but I was looking very pregnant so I didn’t felt sexy I was looking fat.’
WAP was one of the most talked-about music videos of 2020 and also featured cameos from Kylie Jenner, Rubi Rose, Normani and Rosalia.
