Rihanna loves this sassy little girl who can rap Cardi B
Rihanna is making a toddler famous.
On Wednesday, Rihanna shared a video to Instagram of an adorable little girl rapping Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow.” Her mother, Ashlyn Grace, who maintains an account dedicated to her daughter Ava, shared the video again in the hopes that Cardi herself would see it.
@iamcardib has a much better chance to see this now. Tag her in the comments!

Before getting the golden regram from RiRi, Ashlyn had 10,000 followers — and she’s already up to 30,000 today.

Commenters are writing in to compliment Ashlyn on her adorable daughter and Ava’s budding talent. Some are even suggesting that she take her rendition of “Bodak Yellow” to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “She’s gorgeous and her personality is the best!! Ur doing a great job w her!!” wrote in a commenter who goes by niacolucci on Instagram. “This lil girl is a star! Haha made my day. Too adorable,” agreed @stealthtoig.
Some are also writing in to call the song — which does contain a few f-bombs — inappropriate for a toddler. But most are defending Ashlyn and Ava; the video is simply too cute to hate on.
Ava’s rendition of “Bodak Yellow” isn’t the only Cardi B cover to go viral. Sixth-grade teacher Erica Buddington remixed the rap for her students with geographical facts and terms. As BuzzFeed reports, the educational rendition had students “banging their desks to lyrics like, ‘It’s second to the Earth’s biggest continent: it’s Asia.’”

Buddington calls it “culturally relevant teaching,” and we couldn’t agree more. What better way to get sixth-graders to memorize their continents than with a song that’s pretty much always on the radio?
Cardi B fans are clearly a creative bunch. How will they mix up “Bodak Yellow” next?
