(AllHipHop News) Cardi B’s rise to stardom was partially due to the success of her Dubai-set music video for “Bodak Yellow.” The visuals featured the Bronx representative petting a cheetah.
Genius spoke with director Picture Perfect about making the video. He recalled a moment of filming where the animal got testy with Cardi.
“We shot this other scene that we didn’t use, and he attacked Cardi in it,” said Perfect. “So that was kind of crazy. We got her spirits back up and then we shot this scene.”
A different cheetah was brought in. That cat was supposedly fed close to six pounds of deer meat before arriving on the set.
“Bodak Yellow” has collected more than 450 million views on YouTube. The song is currently 4-times platinum.
