Cardi B And Offsets Music Video For “Clout” Is A Tribute To Earl Black Girl Groups Like Destiny’s Child

Cardi B and Offset get really steamy in their music video for “Clout.”

The visual, directed by Daniel Russell, dropped on Wednesday, and features a lot of twerking, tongue and the color yellow.

Decked in all black, Offset plays a yellow piano before flexing in front of funhouse mirrors. Cardi joins her husband halfway through the song, performing a headstand while Offset holds her feet apart, sitting in a pool of lemons and later giving the father of their daughter, Kulture, a sultry lap dance.

The song, which appears on the Migos rapper’s solo LP Father of 4, is the couple’s fourth together and the latest after “Who Want the Smoke?”

The on-again, off-again couple, which reconciled after a brief split in December, seem to be on happier terms. Over the weekend, Cardi, who surprised Coachella guests when she joined Ozuna and Selena Gomez for a performance of “Taki Taki” during DJ Snake’s set, also joined Offset at #REVOLVEFestival, where the pair gave a PDA-filled show.

The Dominican-Trinidadian rapper, whose latest song “Please Me” features Bruno Mars, will soon be making her Hollywood debut in the Jennifer Lopez-executive produced and starring film, “Hustlers.”

Still, the best part of Cardi B and Offsets video is all in the visuals.

As some fans have pointed out, the entire thing has a pretty intense 90s/00s vibe.

There’s SO much love for Janet in this!

And a whole heck of a lot of Lil Kim love.

And TBH no one knows who did it better?

Like look at those mirrors in the background.

Classic 90s music video trait.

It’s basically just like the ones in this 702 video!

Gotta love that Cardi took her love to this level.

Selena Quintanilla has a devoted fan base to rival the likes of the Bee Hive or the Barbz (both of which have been known for go for blood when they’re stanning their Queens). Recently, fans of the powerhouse singer of Tejano music have taken to Twitter to compare the prolific singer’s outfits to everyday objects (oddly enough, whisks).

One stan matched Selena with Fanta bottles!

omg hahah I love how colorful this is!

And got creative with all of the colors revealing something that’s pretty sweet.

That our music queen was also a reina of vibrancy .

They even did Mariah Carey did it!

This time around, Mariah stans have decided that they have truly found the inanimate object that resembles their queen above any other inanimate object: the champagne bottle. Yes, you heard that right. A trend started by Mariah Carey uber-fan, Twitter user @extrapettychris, the biggest Mariah fans are now comparing photos of her in a range of outfits to photos of assorted champagne bottles. The result is an oddly hypnotic gallery of satisfying look-alike images.

1. The black and brilliant one.


Most Twitter users who are fans of Mariah’s preferred the champagne bottle comparison over the whisk ones. “This over whisk all day,” said @plasstick4k.

2. The blue and bold one.


“She’s never been my favorite but this may have changed my mind a little #fabulous” – @WP_Realtor1

3. The gold and glittering one.


Ms. Carey always did have a soft spot for glitter…even if it wasn’t always in her best interest.

4. The red and risky one.


Mariah has always been known to love to dress up. It’s no wonder some people call her the Queen of Costumes!

5. The silver and sparkling one.


The collection of pictures made more than one person’s day. “This got me rollllllling” said Twitter user @BoydTess.

6. The pretty in pink one.


“After seeing this I am hereby convinced she based her outfits after champagne bottles…only logical explanation,” said Twitter user @IAmThePlush.

7. The white and wonderful one.


“WHO HAS THE TIME TO MAKE THESE BRUH” said one @lilswampass. Umm, a dedicated Mariah fan–that’s who.

8. The perfect and platinum one.


In response to a comment saying “Someone put a lot of time into this”, @extrapettychris responded: “About a solid 15-20 minutes”.

9. The navy and nice one.


Some other fans noted how looking at bottles of champagne that oddly resembled Mariah Carey somehow hit the spot: “This thread was very satisfying,” said Twitter user @guaranteed_O. Indeed, it was. Indeed, it was.

10. The green and gorgeous one.


When asked if he’d been holding onto these image comparisons for a while, @extrapettychris responded, “Honestly, no. It was part stan behavior, part THC. Just thought of it last night”. We call it divine inspiration.

11. The leopard and luscious one.


@Extrapettychris went all out when creating this list. Just check out this spot-on comparison of Mimi with a spotted champagne bottle. “Omg the water makes this,” said user @ArtieODaly. Agreed.

Some of his followers chimed in with their own versions of the “Elusive Chanteuse” as a champagne bottle

The champagne/Mimi mashup became a very passionate group effort.

12. The Sparkling Siren


The simple act of comparing the Queen Diva to an intoxicating bubbly liquid seemed to actually be bring a small corner of the internet together to celebrate something they love. “I want to be friends with everyone here that’s a @MariahCarey fan!” said @SassClassNiceAs.

13. The Radiant Rainbow


@Extrapettychris responded to the follower that created the above rainbow image with “Nailed it”. The creator of the image @xochelzzz responded, “Ha thanks bae! This thread is everything.”

14. The Morose Monochrome


Some users couldn’t put into words as to why they couldn’t look away. Like Twitter user @JSquaredStyle who so aptly wondered: “Why am I so intrigued by this?”

15. The fun and festive one


Of course, any Mariah-related fan list wouldn’t be complete without a reference to her status as a Christmas icon.

16. The Heavenly “Hero”


“So many pretty, shiny things to look at! Also, wine bottles…I guess”, quipped @YePirateLiberal.

17. The Glittering Goddess


“This is the most on-point thread I’ve seen lmfaooo”. – @sowr0ngitssteph

18. The Femme Fatale in Forest Green


We can’t tell what has more curves, the bottle or MC? We’ll leave that up to you to decide.

19. The Bronze Beauty


Of course, @extrapettychris’s followers had to give him props where props were due: “This is an absolutely fabulous thread…hope #QueenMimi sees it, top work,” said @Amazing Airedale.

To the delight of everyone, Mariah Carey herself responded to the viral thread. And it was glorious.

As for what the Elusive Chanteuse thinks of it, it seems as if she might have even find the whole thing…amusing?

As for us, we can’t get enough of the bizarre comparisons either. Now, we’re just crossing our fingers that Twitter stans will set their sights next on another Latina goddess (Cardi B, we’re looking at you!)
