The girl from the Bronx is still breaking records wherever she goes.
Cardi B set a new rodeo attendance record with 75,580 fans. The rodeo officials stated that she topped the previous mark by three people, which was formerly set by Garth Brooks on March 18, 2017.
The 26-year-old Grammy winner had the opportunity to perform at a sold-out arena as the headliner at this year’s Black Heritage Day festivities. The all-day event included performances from local bands, choirs, and dance teams, as well as educational exhibits.
Cardi B gave the crowd different sections of her music, rapping “Money Bag,” “Drip” and “Bickenhead” from her debut album, “Invasion of Privacy,” as reported by the Chronicle.
She dedicated “She Bad” to “all my pretty girls and the ugly ones, too,” according to the newspaper, prior to slowing down the rapid pace with a version of “Ring.” She also performed her new single that features Bruno Mars, “Please Me,” as reported by the newspaper.
“The purpose of the rodeo is to collect money, to give scholarships out,” she shared in between sets, the Chronicle reports. “Any job you pick, whether it’s a doctor … or a f***ing stripper, you gonna need some education.”
Cardi isn’t the first rap artist to conquer the rodeo, but she’s one of several performers who’ve made history at RodeoHouston. Tejano legend Selena Quintanilla-Perez broke a record in 1995 with over 67,000 fans in the arena.
