There are a ton of over-the-top moments, many NSFW, in the visually stunning video — like when she plays the piano naked, rocks some jaw-dropping fashion or shows she still knows how to work a pole — but one really has everyone buzzing. Cardi B is being praised for breastfeeding her 5-month-old daughter throughout the three-and-a-half-minute video.

“I just feel like it’s going to be a reset,” she continued, adding that 2018 “was the good, bad and the ugly year.”
While this year was certainly a career peak for the musician, personally there have been a lot of highs and lows. Although Cardi B gave birth to her first child, she also announced her split from husband Offset earlier this month.
“We are really good friends and we are really good business partners — you know he’s always somebody that I run to talk to — and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time,” she told fans. “It’s nobody fault, I guess we just grew out of love but we are not together anymore. I don’t know, it might take time to get a divorce and I’m going to always have a lot of love for him because he is my daughter’s father.”
The Migos rapper was reportedly unfaithful and has been making numerous public pleas for Cardi to take him back. While it doesn’t seem like a reconciliation is off the table, the Bronx-born rapper is focusing on her daughter right now.
“A lot of things scare me… I never wanted to protect somebody so much, I just want to protect my baby. ‘Oh, my gosh, you’re so innocent and this world is so evil,’” she told Extra. “I just want to also protect her. I guess she’s born in fame… I just want early to teach her to be confident… I know when she starts reading and she sees how mean the world is, I just want her to be like, ‘I’m fabulous and rich and I don’t give a f***.’”
Considering she just appeared in her first music video at 5 months, Kulture is doing pretty well for herself.
