Cardi B has been featured on a new track of her longtime collaborator and friend Pardison Fontaine, who is also known as Jordan Thorpe. Titled "Backin' It Up", his debut single was released on Thursday, September 20 along with its accompanying music video.
Directed by Kid Art, the visuals sees Pardison, Cardi and their group of friends living it up in delis and parking garage. The "Bartier Cardi" raptress switches up her look quite often in the video, rocking red, blonde and black while wigs while delivering her lines.
Speaking of her lines, Cardi reportedly recorded her verse while she was five months pregnant. However, some of her lyrics sound incredibly current considering her recent altercation with fellow female emcee Nicki Minaj. Thus, people can't help but speculate that their beef has been going on for sometime even though the two kept denying the feud rumors before.
"Ran down on a b***h, she almost pissed on her leg/ B****es think they f***in' with me, must be sick in the head," Cardi raps while leaning her back against a pillar. "Why don't you chill with the beef and get some chicken instead?/ Got the crown, shut it down."
"Backin' It Up" will be included on Pardison's debut EP, which is due out later this year. "It's more of an introduction," the rapper said of the effort. "I'm catching up fans who have known about me for a long time and introducing myself as an artist to new audiences."
Even though the song marks his first debut single, Pardison has been in the music industry for quite sometime. He penned two of Cardi's hit singles "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" and "Be Careful" as well as collaborating with Kanye West on "Ye". Pardison wrote "Ghost Town", "Violent Crimes", "All Mine" and "Yikes".
