The lovefest between Olivia Rodrigo and Cardi B continues in full swing as the ‘drivers license’ star reveals that Cardi is actually the artist that keeps her honest in her songwriting — Let’s get into it.
In a recent interview with Apple Music, Olivia’s eyes lit up when she was asked about Cardi B, and she just couldn’t stop singing her praises.
Olivia gushed about how lucky she feels to be a teenager at the time when Cardi is making music and that — well, let’s let her tell us in her own words: “I’m so in Love with her, I wanna marry her. What did she say in like, in get up 10?” “Only thing fake is boobs, and I was like, ‘yes!’” it’s no secret that Cardi B has some very quotable lyrics, ok? Ejem— well… some age better than others… Anyway, Olivia went on to share the impact that Cardi has had on her songwriting process — feeding off of that raw bluntness the rapper puts out there.
She said: “Just even as a songwriter, some of the stuff that she says is just so honest and almost like, shockingly honest. When I listened to her song, I’m like, ‘Oh wow, she really just said that on a recorded album.’ Those are my favorite artists who say stuff that other people are scared to say.” To say that Cardi B doesn’t hold back in her music would be an understatement. However, Olivia recognizes that she herself is also very outspoken in her own way.
She added: “I’m making a lot of music right now to put out, and I listen to it back and I’m terrified sometimes. I’m like, ‘Oh my God. I literally am writing about stuff that I don’t tell some of my closest friends, and I’m going to put out for the whole world to scrutinize and talk about.’ It’s a really horrible, terrifying thing. [… Cardi] gives me courage to sort of say whatever I want to say and be honest in telling my story.”
Can you guys imagine what an Olivia-Cardi collab would sound like, though?! No… really, we’re asking for real because the idea itself is way beyond our imagination… But for the time being, the gal pals have yet to meet in person– though that doesn’t mean that they haven’t been exchanging sweet tweets for all of us to see.
A couple of weeks back, an Olivia fan account tweeted out a video of her raving about Cardi’s songs “Up” and “Get Up 10” on the same day that Olivia released her second single ‘Deja Vu.’ Take a look: “I’m obsessed with ‘Up.’
If you guys haven’t heard ‘Get Up 10’, it’s so good… It’s like my favorite rap song ever; it’s so good.” And Cardi showed Olivia some love right back, tweeting: “Such a sweetie pie. I can’t wait to see what she has coming next!” Olivia topped off their mutual fangirl moment with a “love u Cardi” response.
In case you all forgot– Olivia and Cardi began bonding over fast food back in January after the rapper vented on Twitter about how she couldn’t go on her late-night McDonald’s runs because she doesn’t drive. She wrote: “Just like that girl wrote a song about getting her driver’s license, Imma write a song about the struggle of not having a driver’s license.”
Olivia saw a fellow woman in need, and she sprung into action, replying: “Girl, I will pick you up and take you wherever you wanna go” Cardi hit back with a “Yaaayyy !!! Let’s go to McDonald’s and get happy meals!” So at least now we know where both of these stars will finally meet face to face for the first time…
Also, let’s not forget that Olivia announced earlier this month that her debut album titled ‘Sour’ will be out on May 21– and we can’t wait to see what other surprises she has in store for us.
