The Internet (and Cardi B) Is Rejoicing After Idris Elba Confirms He's a Fan of 'Bodak Yellow'

He's definitely fond of Cardi and the Bardi Gang.

Published August 1, 2017

As rising Bronx femcee Cardi B has promptly reminded us on another one of her cash cows, Instagram, she’s climbing the rap ranks all by herself and without a co-sign crutch.

But even she couldn’t help herself from bursting with excitement once she received a nod from film star heartthrob Idris Elba. Appearing on Cassius with his Dark Tower co-star Matthew McConaughey, Elba let everyone know that he was a certified fan of Cardi’s breakout hit single, “Bodak Yellow.” In fact, he even said that if he ever booked a gig as a DJ at any New York City turn up, he’d spin Cardi’s hit over another 2017 summer smash radio-favorite from DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, “Wild Thoughts.”

There you have it folks: Cardi B is the peoples’ champ. And now, fans have one more reason to turn the dial up on “Bodak Yellow” and their fandom for the Bardi Gang leader.

  1. Idris saluted Cardi with his DJ pick for 'Bodak Yellow' over Billboard's No. 1 pick on the R&B charts, 'Wild Thoughts'
  2. Of course, Cardi welcomed the nod from Elba with open arms...
  3. And so did the #BardiGang...
