The #SilhouetteChallenge just got some more steam, and perhaps its newest winner. Following Lala Anthony and Iggy Azalea comes the one and only Cardi B with her entry in the latest viral craze, and the Bronx rapper did more than just the norm. Taking social media back down memory lane, Cardi’s #SilhouetteChallenge brought the heat, titillating viewers with skill.
Cardi admits that “It’s so hard to do tiktoks” in her caption, yet she came through and nails it, albeit with a few bloopers that she chose to share with her followers. “So I did the silhouette challenge,” she says, and once the throwback tune begins, the “WAP” rapper sneaks into the camera’s view with a smile. Also, there’s a pole.
With her hair pinned in rollers, and a short robe on, Cardi rushes to the pole for the real party to begin. Once Doja Cat’s “Streets” comes on, Cardi doesn’t miss a beat and hops on to the pole, reminding her fans of her days as a stripper. With ease, she glides and twirls around the pole seductively and effortlessly transitions into a few tricks.
Fans quickly racked up the views on Instagram, bringing it to over 13 million thus far and rising. Indeed, her comment section was set ablaze as well, including from Doja Cat, who commented “exquisite”. Others continued to let Cardi know that she has been declared the winner of the challenge.
As a bonus for her fans, she switched over to Twitter where she proceeded to post outtakes and bloopers from recording the challenge. “I’m not putting my silhouette challenge here,” said the Bronx rapper. “It’s a exclusive for Tiktok and IG ……BUT….I love this spin I wish I would have put this clip in the video.”
