Cardi B Talks Christmas Shopping, Bacardi & Offset on 'Fallon'

Elsewhere in the interview, Cardi spoke on the success and validation of "Bodak Yellow".

Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, and Fallon discussed everything from the meaning behind her stage name, her Grammy nominations and her engagement to Offset.

Cardi B capped off an incredible 2017 with a visit to "The Tonight Show" on Wednesday (Dec. 20). And, I got new god kids out of nowhere. Of course, longtime fans have heard this story before-her sister's name is "Hennessey" and her name was "Bacardi B" at first, which she used on Instagram. "Once you start making money everybody wants you to be their kids' godmother or something". It was the first number one single from a female rapper since 1998 and has gone platinum three times.

"Because you wanna know something". While appearing on TheTonight Show, Cardi announced that her newest single "Bartier Cardi", featuring rapper 21 Savage, would drop on Friday. "But I know he was gonna get me a very expensive gift because he wasn't there for my birthday".

Fallon was immediately thrown off by said sound effects after her thanked her for being there. "I was just fresh off Love & Hip Hop and everything, and that shit broke my heart".

"Don't get too close because I ain't put lotion on my hands", she said.

On the tireless personal drive behind her breakout year: "This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working". Because I never thought me.
