In a press statement, Cardi B expressed, “Don’t play yourself! Tune into PlayOn Fest April 24-26 and help us raise money for the World Health Organization to boost COVID-19 relief funds. Thank you to all of the healthcare workers who are dedicating their services and helping to save lives! Since I can’t get on stage right now…I’m throwing it back to my party at the Global Citizen Festival to hopefully send some love and light to y’all. Stay safe everyone!” Cardi B’s 2018 performance at Global Citizen in New York will be included as part of the festival.

There will be links to donate featured throughout the festival, and a merch section as well. You can stream Warner Music’s PlayOn Fest here.
