Last month, Ivy Queen and Cardi B met for the first time, blessing fans with the combined power of their caribeña magic. There’s no doubt the young Bronx rapper has drawn inspiration from Ivy, who remains the most accomplished female artist in the male-dominated reggaeton universe (plus, Cardi is still a huge Spanish-language trap and reggaeton fan). When the two icons met, Cardi showed her respect for the reggaeton legend on Instagram, writing, “This is my queen for real a Idol for me @ivyqueendiva. Her music was one of the first reggaeton song I ever listen to.”
Now, Ivy is showing some love for the young rapper, too: on July 1, Ivy posted a video of herself strutting and posing for the camera, set to Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow.” In the clip, Ivy also jams to Cardi’s track “On Fleek” with makeup artist Jay Suárez. Ivy hits up a corner bodega in New York with Dominican singer Natti Natasha, who clowns her with a classic selfie video fake-out. Real tía hours here.
On Twitter, Cardi geeked out over the video. “Ommmmgggg @IvyQueenMusic jamming to my track & I just want to cry of happiness ..She really my queen!!” she wrote.
