Last Friday, Cardi B. dropped the Latin Trap Mix of her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” Featuring rapper Messiah, who drops a pretty vicious verse, the song sees Cardi B. totally digging deep into her Dominican roots and spitting in Spanish. This is especially dope since she first previewed the song at the Dominican Day Parade this month. In full DR attire, she rapped the new song and repped her people on a float. The crowd screamed her lyrics back at her and Cardi B. twerked her heart out. Now the remix is picking up steam. It was just announced today that she has moved into the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs — another first for the rapper.
Cardi B. moved into the top spot this week on the Hot Rap Songs chart.
Just as important for her and the success of the song, was moving up on the U.S. Latino charts — which, duh, she did.

She made it to #6 on Apple Music with her Latin Trap mix of “Bodak Yellow.”
There’s no way to know how many more accolades the new version of the already huge song will attain, but as we learned with “Despacito,” having both Latino and crossover appeal can be the real key to a song’s continued success.
We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Cardi B. and her bloody shoes. ?
In a recent interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Salma Hayek revealed her favorite curse word in Spanish. Kimmel shows a brief trailer of Hayek’s new film “The Hitman’s Bodyguard,” where she curses up a storm during a jail-house interrogation about her hitman husband in the film, played by Samuel L. Jackson. Hayek then reveals that she’s from Veracruz, Mexico which she says is “famous for saying a lot of bad words.” When asked what her favorite bad word is, she says “cabrón” and proceeds to use it freely. “Guillermo, no seas cabrón!” Since its a U.S. show in English, they don’t even bleep it. It’s pretty amazing.
Earlier in the interview, Hayek talked about her recent trip to Costa Rica, where she did battle with a gangster spider monkey.

Apparently, she got into the monkey’s supply of water apples and he wasn’t having it, so he showed her how he felt. It’s a pretty great story. Lesson learned: don’t touch a monkey’s apple, he won’t pee on you. Done.
