The ‘Invasion of Privacy’ rapper, who released the song in May, acts in the video which sees her put on a very public trial for murder. The video cuts to scenes of Cardi and dancers in fleshy body suits that leave little to the imagination, as well as courtroom drama moments and a grisly cell murder.
‘Press’ comes amid several collaborations in 2019 for Cardi, including ‘Please Me’ with Bruno Mars, ‘Rodeo’ with Lil Nas X, and ‘Wish Wish’ with DJ Khaled and 21 Savage. ‘Money’ was her last solo single, released in 2018.
The rapper, real name Belcalis Almanzar, faced misdemeanour charges which stemmed from a brawl at a club in August last year, when she allegedly threw bottles and chairs at two bartenders.
According to Reuters, Cardi pleaded not guilty yesterday (June 25) at the New York Supreme Court in the borough of Queens in a 30-minute hearing.
