Cardi B and Bruno Mars Go for ‘In Living Color’ Vibes in “Finesse (Remix)” Video
As Cardi B's star continues to rise, her brand expands to new and unexpected territories. The latest sign of this is her guest verse on Bruno Mars' New Jack Swing-inspired "Finesse (Remix)," which has just received a colorful 1990s visual accompaniment.
Bruno's self-directed video for his remix of the popular 24K Magic track, which is co-produced and co-written by The Stereotypes, takes an obvious cue from In Living Color, a vibrant 1990s sketch comedy show that featured the likes of Jaime Foxx, Jim Carrey and, in a background capacity, Jennifer Lopez. All it takes is a couple seconds to realize Bruno's version of the show for his visual is completely spot-on.
In the video, Bardi, who recently earned another huge Billboard chart milestone, and Bruno rock colorful '90s gear and dance around to a glossy a beat that sounds a good bit like Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time." For her part, Bardi brings her signature personality to the track itself.
"Drop top Porsche, Rollie on my wrist/Diamonds up and down my chain (ha ha!)
Cardi B, straight stunting, can’t tell me nothing/Bossed up and I changed the game (you see me)/It’s my big Bronx boogie, got all them girls shook/My big, fat ass got all them boys hooked/I went from dollar bills, now we popping rubber bands/Bruno sang to me while I do my money dance like," she spits on the song.
