Around Christmas time, rumors were floating around that Bruno Mars and Cardi B would be releasing a new song together. And now, it looks like the rumors are true as both of them have collaborated indeed and released a new song on Wednesday evening, 30 minutes ahead of midnight, which is a remix of Bruno’s 2016 song “Finesse”.
This is an awesome and funky collaboration that no one thought would be coming up. Bruno had teased the track on Instagram just before its release, by posting a photo of the two dressed in the 90’s style outfits. Bruno Mars, 32 captioned the photo and wrote, “Oh Hey @brunomars!!!! Finesse!! Drops tonight, midnight!! It’s AMAZZZZIIIINGGG.”
In the picture, he sports a green, yellow, black and white vertical striped T-shirt over a sweatshirt along with a couple of gold chains on his neck. On the other hand, Cardi is seen wearing a yellow printed crop top along with high-waisted denim shorts, paired with a colorful bomber jacket. She is also seen wearing large hoop earrings and a baseball cap facing backward. The music video also debuts Fresh Prince of Bel-Air-inspired themes.
The remix song is originally released on Bruno’s 2016 album, 24K Magic and has a new jack-swing inspired beat and plenty of drums. Bruno has bagged six Grammy Award nominations for 24K Magic, that included the album of the year, a record of the year and song of the year for “That’s What I Like”. This year, Cardi B has also earned herself two impressive nominations in the best rap song and best rap performance categories.
And now, Cardi B has featured in her latest collaboration “Finesse” to make a splash on the music scene. Besides, it is also expected that Cardi B may have collaborated with Jennifer Lopez and DJ Khaled on another track as well.
