Leave it to Cardi B to turn coronavirus into a smash hit.

As the DJ iMarkkeyz remix of her viral rant climbs the iTunes charts and spreads across Instagram and TikTok, the rapper is planning on doing good with the money coming in. "The fact this damn corona virus song is charting on iTunes ....Hold on ..let me hit the Dj up and Atlantic so I can’t get my damn coins," she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (March 17).

A fan pondered on Twitter, "if y’all are getting royalties off of this @iamcardib @iMarkkeyz maybe u could consider donating a part of it to food banks or shelters that are probably flooded with new people needing help?"

DJ iMarkkeyz responded that donating was his "goal" from the start, and Cardi B agreed. "YES !THATS WHAT WE GOING TO DO ! Keep in mind you don’t get your money right away ...but even months from now there would be families with financial issues for getting laid off due to the virus .We will Donate !"
