The Musician Behind ‘I Like It Like That’ Found Out Cardi B Sampled His Song Because Of His Grandchildren

Cardi B’s debut album “Invasion of Privacy” broke records even before it was released. So it’s safe to say her first album is a major hit. Each song is so good and it’s as if they’ve always been part of our playlists. One reason why each song on that album may sound familiar to you is because various samples on the tracks were hits back in the day. Her album features samples by Lauryn Hill (on “Be Careful”); Nicki Minaj and Da’ Dip by Freak Nasty on “Bodak Yellow”; and La Chat and Three 6 Mafia (on “Bicken Head”). However, the most recognizable sample on the album is Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like it Like That” on Cardi B’s “I Like It.”

You’re probably familiar with Cardi B’s hit song “I Like It” at this point.

Bad Bunny and J Balvin appear on the track and it is clear they have created a banger. The inclusion of Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like it Like That” gives the song an unexpected nostalgic angle that transcends generations in Latino homes. The track was originally written by Tony Pabon and Manny Rodriguez, but it was boogaloo musician Pete Rodriguez that made it into a hit back in 1967. The song has gone on to be one of the biggest influential boogaloo songs ever.

Pete Rodriguez had no idea who Cardi B was or that she had covered his song. It was his grandkids that broke the big news to him.

The Latin musician, who is 86 years old, had long put his track to bed even though it’s often played on the radio.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rodriguez said that it was his grandkids that told him his song was a hit again.

“My kids and grandkids called me and texted me about it,” Rodriguez said to EW. “We recorded [the original] in 1967, so it’s come a long way.”

A long way indeed.

In fact, he learned about Cardi B and her success thanks to his family.

“I wasn’t aware of Cardi, but my kids and grandkids were,” Rodriguez told Entertainment Weekly. “They were all excited; they’re fans.”

He went on to say that even though he’s “been out of the loop for a while,” he’s now a big fan of hers. Naturally, however, he said out of all of her hits, his favorite is “I Like It.”

Here’s the original track by Pete Rodriguez, the king of boogaloo.

In the past decades since its release it has been covered by countless of artists, including Tito Nieves.

Here’s Pete Rodriguez playing his hit song in 2015.

Cardi B’s hat tip to one of the Latin music legends should be a hint to other Latin artists.

Mariah Carey Fans Are Cheering For Taylor Swift For Knocking ‘Despacito’ Out Of #1 And It’s Hilarious

After spending 16 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, tying the all-time record set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for their hit song “One Sweet Day,” the summer smash “Despacito” has finally been knocked down to second place. Billboard reported on Tuesday that Taylor Swift’s new song “Look What You Made Me Do” had jumped from its #77th debut spot to #1 in just a week, knocking “Despacito” to second place. Twitter took notice.

Some were just as unamused as this little girl:

She was just trying to nosh on some mac-n-cheese when Snow Felicia walked up. Bye, Ms. White.

Some lumped it in with bigger, sadder news.

Sad way to start the month, indeed. Although Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15th to October 15th, this pain will definitely linger for the next 10 days.

Some were more interested in keeping Mariah Carey’s record intact.

Mariah “Nunez” Carey will be fine, she’s got plenty of records to keep her warm.

People were also reminded that Justin Bieber was on the remix.

Although the “Despacito” music video made it to over 3 billion views without Bieber in it at all, there was a time when he was getting all the praise for helping the song reach #1, even though he couldn’t even really sing it…

It was a good run while it lasted, and though they didn’t surpass “One Sweet Day,” it at least tied, cementing the song’s spot in history.

Feeling the “Despacito” blues? Listen to it being played on two calculators, that should cheer you up.
