Cardi B’s New Nardwuar Interview Is Absolutely Biblical

Nardwuar landed his most illustrious guest yet for his latest upload: Cardi B.

Across 10 minutes of pure joy, the Human Serviette chopped it up with Cardi about a variety of highly discussable topics whilst inundating her with enviable gifts. Watch the full interview below unless you're some kind of a masochist who enjoys denying yourself happiness.

 

Among the gifted awesomeness in the latest Nardwuar interview are a copy of Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth, a Freak Nasty CD, an LP of presidential history, and some Al B. Sure.

The Narduwar interview arrives after Cardi B absolutely owned the stage during the first weekend of Coachella 2018. YG, 21 Savage, Kehlani, and more joined Bardi for the Invasion of Privacy-celebrating set that was partially funded by Cardi's own money. If you missed the set in person and/or on the livestream, catch a few highlights below:

Fittingly, the excellent Invasion of Privacy is currently the No. 1 album in the country after debuting with 255,000 equivalent album units. That haul gives Cardi the second largest week of the year behind Justin Timberlake's decidedly not excellent Man of the Woods.

Cardi B Debuts at No. 1 With ‘Invasion of Privacy’

On April 6, Cardi B released her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. After a whirlwind press tour that included co-hosting The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performing on Saturday Night Live, the first week totals are in. Invasion of Privacy has pushed 255,000 equivalent album units in its first week, making it the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. The total is also the second-biggest week of 2018 behind Justin Timberlake's Man of the Woods (293,000 units).

Cardi’s dominance manifested itself in the streaming world as well, with Invasion of Privacy garnering 100 million streams worldwide in a week. That figure allowed Cardi B to eclipse Taylor Swift’s Apple Music record for the most worldwide streams of an album by a female artist in its first week, although the accomplishment comes under different circumstances.

“Since Swift’s album was not available on streaming services for its first three weeks of release, the comparison is not quite an equal one — Swift’s album sold 1.216 million copies in its first week, according to Nielsen Music,” a Variety report noted.

Cardi B now joins Eve, Foxy Brown, Nicki Minaj, and Lauryn Hill as the only female rappers to top the Billboard 200. Nicki is the only member of that group to do so more than once.

LeBron James Joins Justin Timberlake on Stage to Drink Shots

Justin Timberlake fans in Cleveland received a wonderful surprise on Saturday night during the pop star's sold-out concert at Quicken Loans Arena. Concertgoers understandably went nuts when Timberlake brought Lebron James on stage. James did not come empty-handed: He brought a tray full of shots for Timberlake and his dancers.

This may not have been a huge surprise to the superfans: Timberlake was seen at Friday's Cleveland Cavaliers game against the New Orleans Pelicans (the same game where James surpassed Michael Jordan’s consecutive double-digit scoring record). The two exchange some friendly words while covering their lips with their collars to fend off intrigued lip-readers. 

In February, Timberlake earned his fourth No. 1 album with Man of the Woods. The accompanying tour was just as successful, reaching the $100-million mark during its early stages. Arthur Fogel, president of global touring for Live Nation, said, “We've got 50 shows on sale in North America and 16 in Europe, and we're over 700,000 tickets [sold] and $100 million gross… It’s huge.”
