This Is The East Los Angeles Taco Joint Where Cardi B And Bruno Mars Filmed ‘Please Me’

From the inside, the place is filled with Mexico’s finest ingredients: pork, avocado, tortillas, shredded lettuce, and rabanos. We’re not describing your mom’s house (although we’re sure she has those things too), but rather an iconic local restaurant that is now blowing up because of a music video. It’s not just any music video. Tacos Mexico was the filming location for the latest collab with Cardi B and Bruno Mars called “Please Me.”

Sometimes the coziest place for a couple can be inside of a taco joint. Just check out the chemistry between those two. The singers were giving us so much life and lighting up the iconic taco joint at the same time. After the success of “Finesse,” it isn’t a total surprise that the two could light up the screen while grinding in a taco restaurant.

On Instagram, Tacos Mexico said they were extremely proud to be part of this amazing project.

“Tacos Mexico is very proud of being part of ‘Cardi B & Bruno Mars” official music video (Please Me) that is a total Hit! On the very first day of release with over 10,000,000 views and coming…thank you.”

And they’re not exaggerating on those numbers. Total views are now more than 20 million and counting.

Tacos Mexico isn’t just a random Mexican restaurant but an eatery that has deep L.A. roots.

According to their website, Tacos Mexico was founded by
Antonio Moreno. “In addition to expanding his menu, Mr. Moreno also began opening additional restaurants throughout southern California including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties and expanding out of State to Nevada and Arizona. By 2009, the number of Tacos Mexico restaurants had grown to almost 40 locations in three states, all while staying true to its roots and using only the freshest ingredients.”

Moreno passed away in 2009. We’re certain he would have loved this video.

Head on down to 5120 E Olympic Blvd. in Los Angeles and you can eat and vibe in the same spot. Good for you, the restaurant is open 24 hours so there is no time where you won’t be welcomed in for some great food and reminiscing about the first time you saw “Please Me.”

Let’s also take a moment to give Cardi B and Bruno Mars some props for highlighting a local, Latino business.

Tacos Mexico might have locations in two other states but the home of the restaurant is in downtown Los Angeles. We can only assume that the video will help to push the restaurant, which is already a neighborhood staple, into a go-to destination for fans and taco lovers alike.

Check out the video below.

Who wants to meet up for a fun time with delicious tacos? Clearly they are going to be playing “Please Me” on repeat for a while.

Quarantine just got a little easier.

In a recent post to their Instagram pages, rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion confirmed that they are dropping a new collaboration that we didn’t see coming.

And it’s one that we all could most certainly use right now.

In a post to her Instagram page, Cardi B announced that she’s collaborating with Megan Thee Stallion on a new song called “WAP.”

The new song is the first lead track from Cardi since she dropped “Press” in 2019. Earlier this year in March, Megan dropped her album “Suga.”

“WAP” drops this Friday and by the looks of the song’s cover art, it’s gonna be quite the hit. Or at least be very taste? Megan and Cardi can be seen posing for the cover art wearing matching “WAP” gold hoops and with their hair woven in together into one bun. To top it off, their tongues are sticking out like they’re ready to rock.

The latest pairing is a follow up to Megan’s recent power couple collab for “Savage” with Beyoncé. It also her newest song since her recent recovery from a gunshot wound.

Earlier last month, Megan revealed that she was shot in both of her feet.

Speaking about the shooting, which happened on July 12, Megan said “I see… a lot of people that have been very supportive and sending prayers, and I just really appreciate that” she said during the live stream. “I saw the hotties doing a lot of things, like writing letters on Tumblr and DMing me all the time, and I just want to say thank y’all so much, because y’all have really been the ones helping me get through this.”

“I was shot in both of my feet,” she explained. “I had to get surgery to get the bullets taken out. And it was super scary… Thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones; they didn’t break tendons. I know my momma or my daddy, my granny, had to be looking out for me with that one because where the bullets hit at it missed everything.”

Of course, Cardi B and Megan fans were quick to flip.

Literally we’re all pumped.

Girl groups are uniting.

And we’re all ready for it to reach #1.

And we all have questions about what WAP is supposed to mean?

It’s all a mystery but we’re here for the guesses.

“WAP” drops this week on August 7, this Friday.

Young Boy In Los Angeles Turns Entrepreneur To Help Mother During Ongoing Pandemic

Covid-19 has forced families to figure out the best way to make enough to take care of things. Some have had to find new jobs after being laid off and having to make up enough to save their families. A young boy in Los Angeles is doing that to help his mom makes ends meet.

Meet Aaron and his garden.

The young boy and his mother were on their last $12 when he had an idea of creating a business. According to a GoFundMe account, the young boy convinced his undocumented mother to start a business selling plants to help them make it through the pandemic.

Aaron’s Garden was the business he and his mom created to make some money.

“Aaron and mom have been struggling from being homeless to shelters and bouncing from house to house and now live in a shed,” reads a GoFundMe account. “He came out with the idea of selling plants and starting a business in his yard to be a provider and buy his own hot Cheetos with cheese without having to ask his mom for money.”

Aaron advertises his plants and when you can buy them on his Instagram.

The LA entrepreneur is creating a lot of buzz with people celebrating his efforts. People in the U.S. are struggling as the additional $600 in unemployment has disappeared and a second Covid-19 stimulus is stuck in Congress. Aaron’s plant selling is helping his family during one of the most difficult times in modern U.S. history.

Way to go, Aaron.
