Cardi B has a number one fan, and it’s non-other than Olivia Rodrigo!

 

The driver’s license singer whose debut album, Sour, will be released very soon, on May 21 had a virtual session with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe last week about her love for the I Like It rapper and how she appreciates her “honest” songwriting.

“I’m so in love with her, I want to marry her,” Rodrigo told Lowe of the rapper before applauding her hit song Get Up 10 from her Invasion of Privacy album. ‘Yes, that’s the energy.’ I’m obsessed with her. I love Invasion of Privacy.”

 

Cardi called Rodrigo “such a sweetie pie” when the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actress named Get Up 10 as “her favourite rap song ever” in an Instagram Live Q&A session.

 

 

Rodrigo, who has also become one of Taylor Swift’s allies in the industry despite being a newcomer, the two have been serving up friendship goals since January 2021 when Rodrigo’s debut single drivers license hit streaming services, went on to say how she respects Cardi for being “shockingly honest” in her music.

 

“When I listened to her song, I’m like, ‘Oh wow, she really just said that on a recorded album. Those are my favourite artists who say stuff that other people are scared to say. So I think she does that so well. That’s definitely something that I sort of grapple with in my songwriting.”

The singer and actress gave a huge shoutout to Cardi’s number one single Up on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

 

“I’m so stoked for her. I literally almost cried when I saw that. I was so happy for her,” 

 

Aside from Cardi, Rodrigo said she’s also inspired by artists like Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift too.
