Congrats to Cardi B because she broke yet another record – this time, she broke a record for the Houston Rodeo and she’s giving thanks to Selena Quintanilla.

 

Cardi recently performed at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at NRG Stadium, which is located in Texas and in front of 75,580 people!  It was announced by the stadium Cardi’s show had the most-attended at one time and the record was previously held by country music star Garth Brooks who once performed in front of 75,577 fans.  Although it was Garth who held the record, Cardi gives praise and thanks to Selena.

 

 

In an Instagram video, Cardi says, “Hey guys, I just want to say that I’m honoured for beating the Houston Rodeo show [record].  I was nervous to perform in front of 75,000 plus people, but when I saw this picture [Selena], out of all the outfits that she wore, for me to see this picture with this outfit, this was the inspiration for ‘Please Me,’ I knew I was going to be all right.”  Then, Cardi yells, “I love you, b***h!” and then begins dancing and singing to ‘Como la Flor,’ a major hit for Selena in the 90s.

 

Cardi also wrote on the same Instagram post, “I was so sick yesterday you don’t even know! I had such a bad migraine I had to get a doctor backstage to give me two shots and ain’t rehearsed because I been working all week and ain’t really know what I was getting myself into until I got in the venue.  I’m OD honoured for all the love Houston gave me! I remember the first time I came to Houston – I came out here to strip and people showed me made love and Houston was the first place me and set when on a date.  The love have really grown.  I was mad hype to see this picture before I got in my dressing room because all her outfits, there’s a picture hanging on the way of the outfit I got my inspiration from for Please Me music video.  It was like a lucky sign to me.”

And it looks like Cardi received a stamp of approval from Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister, who later wrote, “Aww this makes me wanna shed a tear! Take me back! A big big thank you Spacey Kacey for the love at the Houston Rodeo tonight with that Selena y los Dinos jam!”
