Cardi B Joins Bruno Mars In New Video For "Finesse" Remix
While Bruno Mars' album 24K Magic has received Album Of The Year and Best R&B Album nominations for the upcoming 60th GRAMMY Awards, as well as four other nominations for the tracks "24K Magic" and "That's What I Like," it's the remix of the album's penultimate song, "Finesse," and its new #FinesseVideo featuring Cardi B that are driving the internet crazy so far in 2018.
Mars isn't the only one on a roll. Cardi B is heading into the 60th GRAMMYs with two nominations for her "Bodak Yellow" track, which proved its ability to incite a kind of madness in America's music clubs and topped the Billboard Hot 100 in September.
While partnering with Cardi B might seem like a no-brainer, Mars had something more in mind and the two of them ignited it together. The result is a retro-tipped video shout-out to "In Living Color," a hit show in the 1990s known for free-thinking sketch comedy and free-wheeling dance moves that earned the show a permanent place in many people's hearts.
With this remix and video, Mars and Cardi B bring "In Living Color"'s signature '90s style to a whole new generation, and the impact has been viral, clearing 7 million views on YouTube on only its second day live.
