'S--t is getting real!'
"Stream I guess," the rapper tweeted using laughing emojis one day earlier, when the DJ iMarkkeyz-crafted track was uploaded to iTunes and Apple Music and broke through at No. 96 on the platform's Hip-Hop/Rap Songs chart. Cardi also expressed her disbelief at the remix's momentum, writing, "Wow it's on apple?"
By Tuesday, the song had reportedly jumped all the way to No. 5 -- as well as No. 37 on iTunes overall -- leading Cardi to lift a line from the original video and declare her new catchphrase: "S--t is getting real!"
