Cardi B And Ozuna Teased Their New Song On Instagram And It Features Her Singing For The First Time

It appears we may have another Cardi B banger on our hands. Hit makers Cardi B and Ozuna have both teased what looks like an official collaboration for Ozuna’s forthcoming album, “Trap Cartel.” And if it’s at all like either of their previous work, you may be hearing it everywhere pretty soon.

Cardi B released a preview of the new song, “La Modelo,” on Instagram.

The clip features Cardi singing, which isn’t something we’re used to from the rapper, and it’s not half bad. The clip has already racked up 3 million views in less than 24 hours.

Ozuna also posted a screen capture of his phone as he played the first 30 or so seconds of the track.

Good thing he didn’t have any sensitive information in his notes. It looks like he’s got a full album’s worth of tracks in there, though.

This collaboration should come as no surprise. Cardi B has featured Ozuna’s music in her posts before and was in the studio with him a few weeks ago.

Also in the studio was her fiancé, Offset, as well as Jamaican music producer Rvssian.

Last week, Rvssian posted this video of Cardi B complaining about the heat in Jamaica while they were shooting a music video for Ozuna.

“We doing this video shoot for Ozuna. It’s hot than a mother fucker.”

Ozuna also posted this photo to Instagram and tagged Cardi B in it. It appears to be a music video still, but it’s unclear.

Although she’s not facing the camera, it’s safe to say this is Cardi B. She’s wearing the same outfit from Rvssia’s post from Jamaica, she’s rocking the blonde hair and you can just make out her famous peacock tattoo on her thigh. If it’s as hot in Jamaica as Cardi B said, Ozuna must be drenched in that sweater.

Check out this vide below for a longer listen and some video of Ozuna performing the song behind closed doors.

Cardi B Spilled Knowledge And Acceptance In Support Of Dwyane Wade And Gabrielle Union’s Trans Child Zaya

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have been open and vocal about the support of their trans child Zaya. The discussion surrounding their child started in earnest when the parents posted photos with them during Miami Pride 2019. People have been weighing on the child’s gender identity and Cardi B recently shared her thoughts on the issue and fans are here for it.

Gabrielle Union and her husband Dwyane Wade are showing unconditional love and support for their trans child.

According to various studies, parental acceptance is an important factor in keeping LGBTQ+ youth safe and healthy. LGBTQ+ youth experience higher instances of mental, psychological, and physical trauma, including higher risks of HIV and AIDS infections. Parental acceptance and guidance can offset the known dangers for LGBTQ+ youth. Union and Wade’s support of Zaya is a crucial lesson for other parents with LGBTQ+ children.

The latest celebrity to weigh in on the conversation around Zaya is Cardi B.

The rapper, who has been accused of transphobic comments in the past, threw her full support behind Zaya and their parents. In 2018, Cardi B faced backlash after posting a transphobic meme to her Facebook account. Celebrity trans activists Laverne Cox and Angelica Ross weighed in on the meme calling Cardi B out for her use of the meme in light of the disproportionate murders facing Black trans women.

Yet, now it seems Cardi B is supporting the trans community with an Instagram video calling for support, acceptance, and love for Zaya.

“Let’s not forget that this is a kid. Let’s not forget that this kid could be very very sensitive. That’s 1,” Cardi B told fans in her Instagram video. “And, let me tell you something, right? I feel like people are saying that this kid is too young to transition but it’s like how old is too young? If you are born thinking that you are a girl in a boy’s body, how old do you have to be in order to keep knowing that that’s who you are? That’s who you are. That’s your identity. If that’s who you feel that you are, what is the age limit for you to know that that’s what you want to be?”

People on social media are cautiously celebrating Cardi B’s message.

Today’s cancel culture leaves a lot to be desired. It has become a common occurrence to see people canceled for having problematic views. Cardi B has been able to push forward with her career and has made history as a female rapper. She has long been criticized for her transphobic views and it now looks like Cardi B has changed her views.

“I seen a documentary before, not really a documentary but a long 18-minute video on YouTube way before this Zion situation about this 5-year-old little girl that at 5 years old she transitioned to be a girl,” Cardi B said in the video. “She knew that that’s what she wanted to be because she knew that. She liked to wear dresses. She likes to play with Barbies. And if you’re born like that, you’re forever going to be like that. Whether the age that you pick it to be, it’s your choice.”

For Cardi B, the most important thing is that people let people be happy and free, especially children.

“Let people find their happiness, especially kids. Let them feel comfortable doing what they want to be,” Cardi B says. “And it’s true. A lot of trans [people] that I know around me, like, when I ask them, ‘When did you know that you wanted to change?’ They say, ‘I’ve always felt like I was a girl. I always felt like I was a girl. I was born like this. People are born like this. Like the Lady Gaga song ‘I was born this way,’ like that sh-t is f-cking real.”

Her defense of Zaya and the Union-Wade family seems so genuine and real.

In another video clip circulating, Carid B is calling on people to try to be more open and understanding. Some people live in communities where they do not interact with people who are in the LGBTQ+ community or hold old thoughts towards the community. Cardi B wants those people to try to open their minds and understand that people living as their authentic self is nothing to attack.

Even some who do not like nor support Cardi B are siding with her on this one.

It’s hard not to support someone who is pushing for better acceptance of a marginalized community. This is something we can all get behind because love is love and love always wins.
