If there ever was a music video that needed to be prefaced with a caution, disclaimer or any kind of warning for the sheer boldness of what you’re about to see, it without a doubt could (and probably should!) be for Cardi B’s new music video for “Press.”
Filled with pseudo-nudity, murder scenes, bloody bodies, girl-on-girl action and gun shots galore, “Press” is the NSFW masterpiece that is worth stepping out the office to watch for the three-and-a-half minutes that it takes to all play out. The concept, as Cardi described on her IG a few hours ago (seen above), is her directorial debut in collaboration with Jora Frantzis, who also handled the visuals for “Money” as well. From the fashion choices to the, well, lack of fashion via the nude scenes, everything was meticulously mapped out by the rap queen herself. One of the most poignant scenes is of course the one where she shows out in court, which seems to be unfortunately playing off her real-life legal drama from that strip club brawl last summer. For the sake of both Cardi and her legion of fans worldwide, let’s hope life doesn’t imitate art because, well, our girl literally kills everyone!
Peep the music video for “Press” by Cardi B above, and we’ll keep you all updated on whatever upcoming project this song ends up landing on.
Cardi B returned to court today (May 31) in her case against the attack on women at a strip club. TMZ reports the case is getting more intense as she will face a grand jury. The inclusion of a grand jury indicates prosecutors are looking to give heavier charges.
Cardi arrived at the Queens courthouse to learn her case will now be heard a grand jury and may elevate from being misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment. Prosecutors reveal the case is going to a different measure due to “further investigation.” The findings of the investigation remain vague.
Last August, Cardi allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders at a strip club, Jade and Baddie Gi. One of the bartenders was believed to have slept with Offset. Cardi was arrested for the incident in October. Following the arrest, Cardi denied a plea deal in April, which would result in missed jail time but likely probation.
Today, ironically, Cardi B released her new single, “Press,” which carries lyrics about no longer needing to be featured in publications.
Press, press, press, press, press
Cardi don’t need more press
