Recently, Cardi B jumped on an interview with Stationhead and shared some of her career aspirations.

According to NME, Cardi B shared who her biggest influences are at the moment and here’s what the rapper said: “When I came to the game and people used to be like, ‘Who do you look up to?’ I always used to say, ‘I don’t look up to nobody’, because I didn’t really understand the game and I only feel like I got influenced by the people that were around me.

Continuing on with her particularly rational response, the 28-year-old said, “But now that I’m at the level that I’m at, one of my biggest influences is Rihanna and Jay-Z. And I’m not just saying it to kiss ass or anything. I just feel like they’re so influential because Rihanna comes from a country, a Caribbean country, that my parents came from and she’s a whole billionaire.

More recently, Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie line was valued at $1 billion, which was reported by Forbes back in February, as per NME. And as of May last year, NME also reported that Rihanna had become the world’s richest female musician. That’s why aspiring to match the affluence of Rihanna is pretty logical.

Cardi continued to share: “For her to make her business so big and be a billionaire, that’s what I strive to be. “That’s what I want. I want to be a billion-dollar woman. I want to build a huge brand.

Speaking on looking up to Jay-Z, it’s their similarly shared roots that make him an idol for her. “He’s from the hood and this man’s a whole billionaire. And that’s just all about strategy and that’s just all about shaking hands, that’s just all about putting plans together.

Cardi has had nine top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 since her breakthrough single Bodak Yellow in 2017. She’s married to rapper Offset with whom she has a daughter Kulture. Watch the music video for ‘Bodak Yellow’ by Cardi B.
