Here’s Why Everyone’s Talking About Cardi B’s Horchata

Cardi B / YouTube | Mitú

OK, so everyone’s talking about Cardi B, like always, and for good reason. The Bronx-raised Dominican rapper keeps snapping out hit after hit. Does anyone even remember her first hit single, “Bodak Yellow”? Her debut album “Invasion of Privacy” won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, making her the first female solo artist to take home the award.

Then, claro, there’s her hit collaboration with fellow Afro-Latino, Bruno Mars, in “Finesse.” Nobody saw it coming when they announced their second collab together. “Please Me” has officially become the baby-making song of 2019 and the word “Horchata” has taken on a new, not-mami-approved meaning.

The official music video dropped on March 1, 2019, and the visuals are a throwback dream.

The video opens up with a ’90s-esque “Somewhere in Los Angeles” graphic overlaying footage of downtown L.A. These two giving us nostalgic feels is everything.

“Theee after party spot” is Tacos Mexico.

Cardi always does right by her Latinidad in everything she does. From her Spanglish remix of “Bodak Yellow” to her record breaking “I Like It” single that skyrocketed Bad Bunny to fame, she’s writing music for Latinos and giving voice to Latinos.

The taquería has been around since 1975, and this publicity is going to keep it around for decades to come.

“Please Me” is no different. The entire premise is a nod to the Mexican food and culture that props up Los Angeles.

Tacos Mexico has promised it’s sanitized its counters for your eating pleasure.

Just know, Angelenos, that theee Cardi B twerked on the counters. That really happened.

Then, when Cardi walks into the taquería, Bruno Mars’ jaw clenches. 😅

I’m sweating. The music goes dark and we just hear his heart beating as they make eye contact for the first time.

Let’s just say that things get sensual.

We get 3 minutes and 51 unadulterated seconds of Bruno Mars pleading with Cardi to “please me, baby.” Note that Bruno Mars and Cardi B continue to only hire people of color to shine in their music videos together. 🤩

And then Cardi actually spits this rhyme: “Your pussy basura…”

Every time Cardi raps in Spanish, we come alive inside. Though, yes, we see how problematic it is that some of Cardi’s best rhymes are at the expense of other women. So let’s just focus on this next line.

“… my pussy horchata.”

She said that. That just happened. Millions of humans are singing along to “my pussy horchata” as of February 15, 2019.

The Internet is living for that line.

Having some feelings about the mala in your life? New mantra: “Your pussy basura, my pussy horchata.”

All of a sudden, “horchata” is the new standard for sexiness.

No shade to Jhene Aiko, but the world needed something fresh. Now that ‘something’ is super Mexi, to match the ever more Mexi and Latino world we live in. 🇲🇽

Here’s how to use horchata (n.) in a sentence:

Simple, yet effective. Oooof, the chemistry is sizzling between these two.

Fans are embracing the newly sexualized meaning of horchata.

It’s not just me. All our brains are in the gutter now. That’s just the power of Cardi B and her music.

People are even changing their handles to shoutout to the Bruno Mars in their lives.

I don’t want to attract anyone who wouldn’t know what that means. It is something that will definitely be around for a very long time.

Overall, “Please Me” has become a bedroom pop sensation.

The only generation that could come after Generation Z is Generation Cardi B. I said it. We owe human civilization to her beats.

Fans are even trying to convince Cardi to ditch Offset and embrace Bruno.

They do make award-winning music together. Would youe be mad if they got together?

Cardi B had to back out of her tour with Bruno, but maybe there’s hope yet for next year?

After Kulture came into the picture, Cardi had to back out of her tour so that she could spend more time with her newborn. Please us all, Cardi, and tour with Bruno next year.

Meanwhile, a few guys are feeling for Offset.

He’s fine. Everyone’s fine. They’re still happily together vacationing in Cabo, but Offset hasn’t commented on the public’s concerns for the steamship happening on set.

We think the horchata industry is about to boom like no other.

“Please Me” is all about desire that we don’t see fulfilled. Bruno and Cardi steam up the whole place while rarely touching.

But you go get that horchata, girl.

Foodies be warned: you’ll crave a million things watching “Please Me” but none more than tacos.

Pro tip: Tacos Mexico has over a dozen locations in California, all open past midnight. Check out tacosmexico.com to support Mr. Moreno’s taco business. Mexicans creating jobs right there .

Or horchata, depending on your needs. 😉

We can want everything for Kulture and ship this fantasy couple at the same time, right? #TeamHorchata

People Want Houston To Honor Los Tigres Del Norte With Their Own Day After Beating Cardi B’s Record

Los Tigres del Norte is one band that all Mexican-Americans stan. They have a way of transcending generations and the whole family can go to a concert and jam out. That’s exactly what happened with their last concert at the Rodeo Houston, which broke Cardi B’s record attendance…by six people.

We can all remember the first time we heard “Los Hijos de Hernández” and “Contrabanda y Traiccion.” These songs are just two of the reasons the band is still a force to be reckoned with today.

Cardi B stunned Texas when she broke the all-time attendance record at the Rodeo Houston.

Cardi B got a crowd of 75,580 people to fill the Rodeo Houston on March 1. She beat Garth Brooks’ record attendance on March 18, 2018 by just three people. The record-breaking attendance is a true testament to the diversity in the Texas city.

Houston even honored Cardi B with her very own day, March 1.

Cardi B was presented with a proclamation after her show announcing March 1 as Cardi B Day. A lot fo people are saying it is because she set a record with her concert attendance but the proclamation outlines the reason for her receiving the honor.

“On the weekend of August 26, 2017, the greater Houston area experienced a life-altering natural disaster. Houstonians dealt with devastating losses due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Through compassionate people willing to serve during this difficult time, Houston has remained resilient in its recovery efforts. Cardi B was no exception and unequivocally expressed her support by mobilizing into action to hose the Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive on September 16, 2017.”

Just 10 days after Cardi B’s record-breaking night, Los Tigres del Norte rolled into town.

If there is any band that can get all of Houston to the Rodeo Houston, it would definitely be Los Tigres del Norte. The norteño band has been rocking out homes and families since 1968 and they show no signs of slowing down, nor should they. They remain as relevant today as they were 50 years ago and for that we salute them as if they are family.

Oh, and they totally beat Cardi B’s record for Rodeo Houston attendance by six people.

That’s right. Cardi B brough 75,580 people to the Rodeo Houston and Los Tigres del Norte arrived with 75,586 of their closest fans. Only six people were needed to officially unseat Cardi B as the most attended concert in Rodeo Houston’s history.

And some people went straight to the Nicki Minaj/Cardi B feud to share their joy with this change.

Dayummmmmm. Rodeo Houston has been hosting some of the biggest names in music lately with a slew of artists taking their shows to Texas’ largest city. Kacey Musgraves, Cardi B, and Camila Cabello are just a few of the names to recently rock the concert venue. They even gave Selena touching and, some would say, necessary tributes while performing in Houston.

People are truly wildin’ out over Los Tigres del Norte beating Cardi B for attendance.

They really did that, though. Like, they legit rolled through, saw what Cardi B did and figured they could outdo her. They did and it seemed like they didn’t even flinch when they performed to the largest-ever crowd at Rodeo Houston.

Some people are flabergasted at how quickly Cardi B lost her title.

How could you really expect a norteño band wouldn’t bring in more people than any other kind of musician in Texas? It is Texas and Mexico is literally right next door. It makes sense that the most beloved band in the Mexican and Mexican-American communities would bring in the largest crowd. It just makes sense, tbh.

Some are even asking Houston if Los Tigres del Norte will get their own day.

Surely, Los Tigres del Norte have done something worthy of a day commemorating them. However, Cardi B was presented her proclamation tied to what she did for Houston following Hurricane Harvey, not just because of her concert size.

So many musicians have made their way through Houston lately and there could be a change to the most-attended concert in the near future. We’ll just have to stay tuned to see what the future holds.
