Cardi B: Bodak Yellow Meaning
Song Released: 2017
Bodak Yellow Lyrics
If you wanted to
These expensive, these is red bottoms
These is bloody shoes
Hit the store, I can get them both
I don't wanna choose
And I'm quick, cut a nigga off
So don't get comfortable

You all wrong about red buttons and bloody shoes guys
She talks about expensive clothes and shoes. Bloody shoes refers to french designer Christian Lou Boutin shoes that are very expensives and have the particularity of beeing red colored under the shoes (just like in the clip). I know this because i’m french and all the girls in France want to have Lou Boutin shoes...

The song is hypnotic and gets stuck in my head every time I hear it. I feel bad for someone who has to become as tough as she sounds in this song, and whose lifestyle and priorities are as reflected in this song. Hopefully it is just theatrics but if not, it is a shame people have to grow up in a culture that makes them like this. She will probably pass this attitude and values along to her children, and I know it will be to help them survive but it sucks. She thinks she is a success ("she a boss" and "she makes money moves" and "she buys both b/c she don't have to choose") but I just want to turn the clock back and give little her a hug and raise little her with love and without exposure to all that ugliness. This song makes me sad that our society is failing people.

i just love this song. I am a young girl from India and around my 17. As the world knows that in India women have no freedom and we fell like a sparrow in a cage but when I hear Cardi B voice and fell her attitude and the difficulties in her life with whom she is fighting like a warrior it give birth desire in me, desire to fell the freedom and show the world that What can a girl be capable of. Cardi B if ever you read this please rember that I love you and the people said that they hate you are that kind of people who have not positive attitude and not know What they are(trash). Always rember we love you so much please be always with us as usual.
I think Cardi b is a good person who just likes to rap and got her dream but she is also a selfcentered person to me she only talks about sex,hoes,stripping,gangs,gun violence in a lot of her songs and a lot of kids who listen to this follow her so my only edvice to cardi is that she might wanna think about the stuff she raps about or she might end up like tupac or worse cause a lot of people dont play that shit.

This song means that guys can't mess with her. She was used because of her looks and she worked in a club and she was used by men. She's saying that women are as important as men.

she just made a reference or a kind of comparism between her former life of being a stripper and now that she dont have to dance anymore cause she makes money moves.her also using another womans guy is an additional but her her words are just being coded and in slangs for unknown reasons best known to her.the song have so much meaning both deep meanings and ordinary meanings but she isnt to be judged cause itz her choice and itz just a song afterall.

It's sad how a lot of people are hating on Cardi B and her song. People are calling her stupid and trash. The same people who don't have lives and hide behind the keyboard. Cardi B is one black woman that is doing great things for herself. She is a black girl that rocks. Now you say, you gon' do what to who? Let's find out and see. Cardi B, you know where she's at, you know where she be!

Cardi B will be relevant because she did have something to say and guess the !!!! What? People are listening and buying. It's up to the individual not you. That's the problem of social media You Spit Too Much. CALM THE !!!! DOWN. NOBODY CARES ABOUT AN OPINION UNLESS YOU WANT TO CARE.
