Here’s How Cardi B Managed To Pull Off The Most Perfect ASMR Video
We all know Cardi B as the Dominican rapper who is unafraid to take up space, amp up the volume and be heard. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and it’s followers are here to be whispered to sleep. You would never guess it, but these two movements could not be more cohesive embodied in the “okurrs” of Cardi B.
W Magazine partnered with the singer for 13 minutes and 35 seconds of intimacy. The internet is calling for Cardi B to quit her day job and start an ASMR channel.
ASMR is famous for giving listeners “tingles” that run through their spine.W Magazine / YouTube Cardi’s voice being whispered directly into your ear is something that everyone wishes they could experience in person. Until that day comes, this video is going to have to do.

A bunch of ASMRers are saying that it’s meant for listeners to hear her nails “shushing” them to sleep. The community is a very engaged and appreciative community always looking for better tingles.

She didn’t rush. You felt like she was talking directly to you, and that is the measure of success for an ASMR video. We know you’re going to Google ASMR videos and meet all the top ASMRtists on YouTube, but you don’t need to.
At one point, Cardi is handed a shag blanket to pet.W Magazine / YouTube
She tells us how “very, very, very warm” the blanket is. She even starts to fan you with it and asks you if you can feel how warm and soft it is.
Then, Cardi passes you the blanket and tells you to rest your head next to it.W Magazine / YouTube
It truly is one of the best ways to spend your night if you are overworked by the current political climate this is perfect. You will feel relaxed, loved, warm and ready to sleep a full night.
Then, she plays with a kid’s toy and people started to think that it was a little too suggestive.W Magazine / YouTube
First of all, it is a kids toy. Second, the whole point of ASMR is to be low volume and relaxing.
ASMR fans are going to bat for Cardi.@sofxa_aa / Twitter
Some people just can’t have nice things because they are determined to find the fault in it. In this case, people can’t take Cardi B doing something that millions of people like to soothe them.
Experts are saying she could go pro.@ShenandoahU / Twitter

ASMR is all about turning off listeners’ stress, and Cardi succeeded… while talking about her *career*.@_RobertJimenez / Twitter
That’s how good she is at this. People actually nodded off to sleep to this:
“When “Bodak Yellow” came out, I was wondering if this is going to be my first hit? And it was. It changed my life forever. But I was also scared because the song was so big. I didn’t know if the next record was going to follow up. I didn’t want it to be a one-hit wonder.”
It makes sense that she would be good at it since she admits to watching ASMR videos every day.@gertrudemanbun / Twitter
I’m shooketh. But it all makes sense why she would be so good at this. On her very first attempt, she was able to deliver a virtually perfect ASMR session.
The first words out of her mouth? “Okurr”@VickyBairdViale / Twitter
But like, a slow, slow, whisper. I don’t understand how she can be so good at everything she does. I just don’t.
ASMR loving Latinos basically achieved life goals this week thanks to her.@Bea40446041 / Twitter
We are all blessed to have experienced this amazing take on ASMR from one of the most popular artists of our time.
Some Latinos are even being converted into ASMR aficionados thanks to the Bardi.@EdCa5stro / Twitter
It can be too much for some people to handle. It is a very specific thing to witness and some people just can’t take that kind of noise.
It can truly be so soothing.@desiistg / Twitter
In her own words, “It give me a very tingly, tingly, tingly, tingly, tingly, tingly sensation, sensation, sensation.”
Cardi is single-handedly disrupting midterms week.@ooflyzzie / Twitter

Cardi opened up about how she made “Be Careful” for women.@VaginaCrunchBar / Twitter
She thought that it would be her biggest hit because so many women could relate. She tells us that she was shocked that it would only go platinum two times.
Fun fact: “I Like it” is her biggest record from “Invasion of Privacy.”@sexandthevalley / Twitter
“You know, the people like the song. It’s my second number one, one, one record. It was such a surprise. I was so, so, so so, so happy.”
When filming the music video for “I Like It,” she was six months pregnant.@zaleta_ruiz / Twitter
They filmed it in Miami and being so pregnant and so hot at the same time was a little nightmare. ASMR style, she said, “I was getting very, very sick, because I was so, so pregnant, and my feet were getting so, so swollen, len, len, len, len, len, len.”
Then she glowed about how perfect her daughter is.@LyndseyMadelyne / Twitter
Prepare to get emotional. In her own words, “I get very anxious to see my baby 24/7 and I love my baby’s face, and I love her breath, and I love her smile. And I love how she looks at me. She looks at me like she needs me more than anything, anything, anything, anything, anything.
And sometimes I look very ugly and fucked up and sometimes I wake up right next to her and she just looks at me like , like I’m a present from God, but she’s my present from God.”
Tbh, you just have to watch it yourself.@krysdecides / Twitter
Same. You heard it right here from a deceased person. I’m too deep in my slumber to be trusted. Carve out 13:35 minutes of your life, preferably at bed time and with a fuzzy blanket next to you and you’ll feel the tingles.
