The Internet Is Torn Over This Eerily Soothing Video Of Cardi B

"Falling asleep to a whispered 'okurrrrr' feels so wrong and yet so correct."

At this point, it's safe to assume that Cardi B will try anything once. Viral sensation ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) has one goal: relaxation. The Bronx femcee's latest interview isn't like most, because fans have been highly requesting her to partake in the trend since this clip surfaced from a radio interview.

  1. Some even asked her to remix Ying Yang Twins' "Whisper Song" because of the 13-minute interview.

    Another fan had such a classic Bardi Gang reaction, "CARDI B ASMR. IVE SEEN IT ALL. IM DEAD. THIS. IS. EVERYTHING." The trend became popularized thanks to Spirit Payton, a YouTube influencer whose videos has garnered over 100 million views and over 500K subscribers.

  2. It isn't necessarily a sexual act. It's more of a soothing one that has the Bardi Gang in shambles.

    During the interview, the Invasion of Privacy femcee mentioned that she assumed "Be Careful" would be her biggest hit from their debut album because it resonates with so many women. However, "I Like It," featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin, is, much to her surprise, the one conquering the charts. She also mentioned that amid the historical success of "Bodak Yellow," she didn't want to be a one-hit wonder. Hence why she had so many features that were successful in their own ways.

    Mrs. Cephus also gushed over the joys of motherhood and how her daughter, Kulture, looks at her like "she's a present from God."

  3. If you're new to ASMR, the video might be slightly unsettling, but see for yourself below.
