Cardi B, 'Bodak Yellow'

Cardi B’s debut single with Atlantic Records, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” has put the reality-star-turned-rap-star on an unstoppable trajectory. In 10 weeks, the song has been certified gold, topped the Hot Rap Songs for four weeks and muscled its way up the Hot 100, where it is second only to Taylor Swift

With its leaned-back beat and hypnotic, braggadocious flow, "Bodak Yellow" naturally draws in a crowd of producers lining up to give their spin on the ubiquitous hit.

We’ve compiled the best remixes, bootlegs and edits Billboard Dance has come across so far:

Cardi B - "Bodak Yellow" (Latin Trap Mix feat. Messiah)

The only official "Bodak Yellow" remix doesn't tweak with the original recipe very much -- the beat is just as swaggering as ever -- with the exception being Cardi B rapping bits of her verses in Spanish. It’s a smart twist and B’s no less fiery, but it’s Dominican trap MC Messiah El Artista’s frenetic feature that makes the track unmissable.

Cardi B - "Bodak Yellow" (Mr. Carmack Remix)

Mr. Carmack layers on submerged bass and a wildly fluttering, synthetic flute melody that makes the bite of the original even more danceable. If that’s not enough, the perfectly placed "Da Dip” sample is a stroke of brilliance on this "Bodak Yellow" remix.

Cardi B - "Bodak Yellow" (UNIIQU3 Bootleg)

The Jersey Club queen dresses “Bodak Yelow” up in a speedy, ‘90s-rave breakbeat and waves of sub-bass. UNIIQU3 has a penchant for ratcheting up the intensity, perfectly timing a flash of club drums to B’s punchlines. The result is a grimy, clanging collage of ad-libs that lands hard and instantaneously.

Cardi B - “Bodak Yellow” (Y2K Remix)

Despite its tag, Y2K takes his "Bodak Yellow" remix about as far as he can from ‘Jazz and Blues.’ Cardi’s voice emerges out of a haze of blow-your-speakers power chords and what sounds like a drum line’s worth of snares. The mix is filled with explosive, fuzzy beats we’re hoping appear in spades on the album.

Cardi B - "Bodak Yellow" (Slimez Bootleg)

If you’re sweating for the combative, festival-prepped strain of dubstep, look no further. Slimez chipmunks Cardi B to match his splashing set of drums. Once the drop hits, "Bodak" all but falls away and the song wanders into Slimez’s familiar territory of screaming, metallic synth warps.

Cardi B - “Bodak Yellow” (Feat. Kodak Black) [Remix]

A remix roundup of Cardi B's "Bodak" wouldn't be complete without a remix from Kodak, Kodak Black that is. He hops on the eerie beat and shouts out Cardi B in his verse: "Cardi B got the beat, told me re-rock the heat."

BONUS: Cardi B - "Bodak Yellow" (Erica B. Remix)

The internet seemed to stand still a few weeks ago when Erica Buddington, a Brooklyn-based educator, posted a video of her rapping to "Bodak Yellow" about maps for her geography class. Watching the kids go wild is adorable and, not for nothing, Buddington’s flow is solid (as a former slam poetry champion who appeared on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, this comes as no surprise). Not too shabby for a school day.
