There are not many places more intimidating than the New York City subway. There are certain exceptions to cutting that tension, and the power of music is one of them. On Sunday, (Dec. 3) a dance party broke out at the 42nd street 7th Avenue station when someone started blaring Cardi B’s anthemic “Bodak Yellow.” Normally monotone commuters from all demographics and ages joined in on the improvised scene.
For Cardi, "Bodak Yellow" has opened several doors for the Bronx MC, most notably a No. 1 record on the Billboard Hot 100 in September (where she stayed for three weeks). With the record currently sitting comfortably in the Top 10, fans are pondering if her next record will trump its predecessor.
