Cardi B didn’t just stop at her red carpet appearance to make a statement at the Grammys—she continued her night of standouts with a sensual and show-stopping performance of her newest single, ‘Money.’
The song opened with a stunning piano prelude by Chloe Flower, Filipino pianist, composer, and activist, ahead of Cardi’s arrival.
The rapper then took to the stage of the 61st Annual Grammy Awards clad in a cheetah-printed bejeweled catsuit for a vintage-inspired twist to her recent single.
Cardi writhed in sync with her backup dancers, while making sure to keep out the raunchier lyrics of her of song. Towards the end, she made her way down to the crystal-incrusted piano, dancing on top of it.
The rapper took to the Grammy stage for the first time last year with her friend and collaborator, Bruno Mars, for a performance of “Finesse.” Following her two Grammy nominations in 2018, Cardi is now nominated for seven Grammy awards this year including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy, Record of the Year for “I Like It,” and Best Rap Performance for “Be Careful.”
