How Cardi B uses IG to remind everyone she’s the same girl from the Bronx

Snatching the Top Rap Female Artist and Top Rap Song, among other awards, Cardi B charmed the attendees of the Billboard Music Awards that were celebrated this week in Las Vegas.

Her one-of-a-kind speeches where probably one of the many highlights of the night. Cardi isn’t only a crowd favorite because of her chart rising songs, but also, because of her singular way of expressing herself.

Cardi, whose actual name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar and is of Dominican and Trinidadian descent, was raised in the Bronx and achieved notoriety in the blink of an eye, profiling as one of the hottest female rap artists that are currently in the market.

All through her catchy songs and unique collaborations, with artists such as SZA and J Balvin, are a key element to her unstoppable success; her inimitable authenticity has made her popular with the masses.

Cardi is also known for having no filter and saying things that have caused turmoil in topics from music to politics, becoming a sort of advocate for those who do not have such a broad platform like the award-winning rapper.

In an era where social media has clouded our judgment and has made us doubt our own reality, a refreshing voice rose up from the depths of the internet world, that voice was Cardi B.

Her Instagram profile is her forum for communicating with fans and getting the word out. IG is of course the best platform for artists and celebrities to connect with their fanbase but Cardi takes it to the next level.

Cardi has made it her mission to use Instagram as a tool to show that her candidness is legitimate. Her account, which has over 43 million followers, is a compilation of pictures of her in mesmerizing outfits, videos of her speaking her mind and memes.

Cardi has proven multiple times that she is not your average artist and her most vivid evidence is the way she omits using a filter and opting for speaking her mind wherever and whenever.

In our superficial era where many struggles to keep an image online, that’s probably different from who they really are, Cardi has decided to be open about who she is. Owning up to her past and using it as an instrument to continue to open doors for herself and others in the future.

For example, she recently used her platform to share a picture of the 20 democratic candidates that are running for the United States presidency in 2020. The caption said,

“Post I love to see! These are the democratic nominees. I can’t front I only hurd and read on about six of them. I’m going to research these names on my flight! LET’S START LEARNING AND ENCOURAGING VOTING NOW! Not when is popular to do so and it’s only like four nominees left.”

Cardi has proven that being aware of the political happenings in the country is the key to a better future. Her advocacy in political issues has gained massive attention and has allowed her to expose deep issues to her fans.

Her energizing point of view is a refreshing alternative to the shallow environment social media has created amongst its users. Keep doing you Cardi!
