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.

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.

She used her famously long nails to brush the mic and get the session started.

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.

Cardi slayed at speaking in low, slow tones.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ASMR is all about turning off listeners’ stress, and Cardi succeeded… while talking about her *career*.

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.

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”

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cardi opened up about how she made “Be Careful” for women.

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.”

“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.

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.

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.

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.

When it comes to the collection of body art, no one in quarantine seems to be quite as productive as Cardi B. The “Press” rapper might be in quarantine like the rest of us but that hasn’t stopped her from getting multiple tattoos and some body bling. Back in June, the rapper revealed her painful effort to obtain two new daring dermal pieces.

Unfortunately, as cute as the lewk was, her body didn’t seem up for it.

The rapper recently shared a video on her Instagram Stories of her body rejecting her chest piercings.

In a graphic video shared to Cardi’s Instagram last week, at least one of the piercings can be seen being pushed out of her body and hanging from her skin. “This is how my piercing has been for the past four days,” she explained in the selfie video.

Back in June, Cardi shared her excitement over her dermal piercing process in a video posted to her Instagram page. The two new dermal piercings were placed in a vertical line down her chest. At the time she’d also opted to remove her top dermal piercing “I got to take this one off because this one is old,” she shared. “You all know I’ve been having this one for a long time, but whatever.”

It’s unknown why Cardi B’s piercing was rejected by her body.

According to Healthline, “Piercing rejection isn’t nearly as common as some other piercing complications, like infections, keloids, and dermatitis. When rejection does happen, it’s usually in a flat area of the body.” Even more, there is no specific reason for piercing rejections. They can range from genetics and skin tightness to jewlery shape and size. Weight changes and emotional stress can also be factors in the body’s rejection of piercings.

Here’s hoping Cardi B gets the dermal piercing she’d originally hoped for!

Cardi B Used A Racial Slur To Describe Her Daughter And Now She’s Getting Educated

iamcardib / Instagram

Cardi B has her flaws and blind spots and as such as faced quite a bit of backlash throughout her career for the times that she has misspoken or used stereotypes offhandedly.

Last year, we reported that the Dominican/ Trinidadian rapper had previously claimed in resurfaced 2020 live-stream on Instagram that in the past she “had drugged and robbed men” who had solicited her for sex. In another resurfaced clip, Cardi B claimed that boyfriends who cheated on her would experience her seducing them with the promise of a threesome only to reveal the morning after that their partner was a transwoman much to her boyfriends’ distress. At the time, it didn’t take long for fans and advocates to lambast her for her ignorant use of a transwoman to get revenge, while also potentially putting them in harm’s way.

It turns out the “Bodack Yellow,” rapper is still in need of some lessons.

The rapper landed herself in hot water over the weekend after using an Asian slur while describing her daughter’s eye shape.

Okay one more pic of this look and THATS IT !

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

It all began when the mother to 2-year-old daughter Kulture shared a photo of what she might look like as an adult. In the comments, a fan was quick to point out that in the image looked like a combination of the rapper’s husband Offset and her sister Hennessy.

In response that has now been deleted Cardi B wrote “I think cause Hennessy got c*****y eyes like offset and so [does] KK. Its the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”

Fans and critics were quick to call the Grammy award winner out for the use of the racial slur. To which she responded it came from a place of ignorance “I didn’t know that c—-y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–KIN EVERYTHING !!” she wrote in a tweet that has now been deleted. “We don’t even use that as a (sic) insult and I didn’t use it as a (sic) insult.”

In response to the backlash, she received in 2019, for her comments about once drugging and robbing men while she was a stripper, claimed to not be “perfect.”

“I never claim to be perfect or come from a perfect world wit [sic] a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s–t,” Cardi explained to fans at the time. “Im apart [sic] of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are. There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs an [sic] robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive. I never glorified the things I brought up in that (Instagram) live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it.”
