Cardi B has made an ASMR – Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response – video in which she speaks about her hit ‘Bodack Yellow’ and motherhood whilst whispering.
ASMR is a trend currently sweeping YouTube and sees people whispering into microphones in an attempt to produce sounds that soothe.
You can watch the video, made as part of a session with W Magazine, here:

The 13-minute video sees the star talking about her own experiences of ASMR as well as describing what motherhood is like following the birth of her daughter earlier this year. Cardi B also talks about her breakout hit ‘Bodak Yellow’ in the video.
As well as whispering, Cardi B can also be seen stroking a fuzzy rug and playing with a children’s toy, all of which are meant to add to the overall sensory experience of ASMR.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj revealed new merchandise that pokes fun at Cardi B earlier this month (October 6) escalating the tension between the two rappers.
The ongoing feud was reignited last month when Cardi B and Nicki Minaj got into a fight at a New York Fashion Week event. The ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper later posted a note on Instagram aimed at Minaj, saying that she was purposely targeting Cardi B’s career.
“I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f**k up the way I eat,” Cardi B wrote. Minaj denied the accusations on her Beats 1 radio show Queen Radio but has now revealed a line of shirts, backpacks and jackets emblazoned with the slogan ‘Nicki stopped my bag’.
In September, Cardi B was arrested and charged on suspicion of assault and reckless endangerment at a New York strip club. She also recently spoke out to deny responsibility for posting a transphobic meme on her Facebook page.
