A Song Remixing Cardi B’s Coronavirus Video Is Going Viral, And She Wants To Get Paid

Last week, Cardi B did something that’s not out of the ordinary: She took to Instagram to share her thoughts. This time, she posted a video in which she speaks about the coronavirus pandemic, and the clip has gained a lot of attention. DJ Snake remixed it, and so too did a producer who goes by DJ iMarkkeyz.

He took snippets of Cardi’s dialogue, set them to a hip-hop instrumental, and the song has gone viral. The track has since found its way onto streaming services, where it has been performing well. The track has topped the iTunes charts in countries including Bulgaria and Egypt, and in the US, it has climbed to as high as No. 2 on the iTunes US Hip-Hop chart, and No. 11 on the overall chart.

As this has all been happening, Cardi seems to be enjoying it. She has retweeted and shared various updates about the song’s success, and it looks like she wants a cut of the money it’s making, as she tweeted, “At this point I want royalties.” Responding to an update about the track’s chart placement, she tweeted, “Stream I guess.”
