“I Like It” – Cardi B feat. Bad Bunny & J Balvin

Cardi B didn’t let a little thing like a pregnancy get in the way of her dropping some badass music videos. She used fashion to hide her baby bump for as long as she could before announcing what everyone already assumed, but in the music video for “I Like It” she rocked some hot looks, pregnant or not.

For the Latin-style single, Cardi steps out with a yellow ruffled skirt and beaded top, some big hoops, and a blue head wrap while she struts her stuff down the street. The look is completed with wrists full of bracelets and bangles. In another scene, the rapper is in a flowing red gown and another head wrap and she is giving divas like Beyoncé and Mariah a run for their money with a serious wind machine moment.

Just because she was pregnant didn’t mean she couldn’t show a little skin. Cardi dances around in a two-piece matching outfit that just screams summer. The purple paisley outfit crops right above her belly, letting Cardi shake it to the infectious summer anthem in style. The matching set screams ‘70s, but still looks so current, like something you would find on Fashion Nova or on every Instagram model — after Cardi did it first, of course.

Cardi proved that pregnancy style doesn’t have to be all maternity clothes. Instead, it can be sexy and high fashion and summery all at the same time. I guess being a successful rapper with a team of stylists helps, too, but she still served up some serious summer fashion inspo!
