Cardi B keeps finding new ways to win despite doubters and detractors attempting to undermine her reign. On Tuesday (Oct. 17), Sony/ATV announced that the Bronx rap artist just signed a worldwide publishing deal.
The Bronx, New York talent is one of the biggest breakthrough artists of the year, having become the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill nearly two decades ago to top the Hot 100 with a recording not featuring any other billed acts.
Sony/ATV Co-President, U.S. Rick Krim said: “As ‘Bodak Yellow’ has already demonstrated, Cardi B is one of a rare breed of unique artists who the industry only witnesses occasionally. We are honored that Sony/ATV will get to work with this special talent who is not just impacting music but pop culture as well.”
Sony/ATV Senior Director, A&R Jennifer Drake said: “Cardi B is honest, real and refreshing and has the confidence to say exactly what she is thinking and feeling. It’s tangible and you can connect to that. We are so proud to be able to work with a talented artist like Cardi and excited to see her push the culture forward.”
Cardi B said: “Oooo, I’m so happy to be with my new family Sony/ATV. ‘Bodak Yellow’ is only the beginning and we’re just getting started.”
Cardi took to Instagram to celebrate the news and also had a stern message for her haters.
“Too much muf*ckas done doubted me that’s why I have to just prove it,” Cardi wrote, as seen in the IG post below.
