After a series of cancellations, Cardi B returned to the stage to perform at the MetLife Stadium for HOT 97’s Summer Jam.
Cardi B always keeps her fans on their toes but, she had literally everyone putting their hands on their knees and twerking in their seats. The Bronx native brought an immense amount of energy that made up for her not being able to perform. As Cardi B entered the stage, motorcycles rumbled and everyone stood waiting for Cardi to approach the stage. The intro on her first debut album Invasion of Privacy “Get Up 10” played and Cardi entered the stage.
I was very impressed with her performance. The dancers were on point and Cardi was of course very entertaining. Her dancers surrounded her most of the time and they kept the set similar to a party atmosphere, constantly hyping each other up.
A highlight of her performance was bringing Lil Nas and Billy Ray Cyrus out to perform “Old Town Road.” This was literally an iconic moment for the culture. My cousin was super excited about this moment because she’s never seen Billy Ray Cyrus before. It was cool to see three different artists come together at summer jam.
