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” (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.
