Cardi B‘s one-off single “Press” may be a bit of art (slightly) imitating life.
A day after she pleaded not guilty in her Queens assault case, Cardi’s “Press” video comes complete with a perp walk, her engaging in a menage-a-trois scene before pulling out a gun and a full-blown trial where courtroom witnesses wind up dead, Cardi lands in jail and immediately gets into it with her cellmate. There’s a little Basic Instinct, Cardi hitting her entrance to the courtroom like she’s the Pope and more.
Watch the video before. It’s the first video since her “Please Me” track with Bruno Mars and follows her “Clout” performance with husband Offset at the BET Awards.
Cardi faces four years in prison if convicted on any of the 14 charges levied against her.
