Cardi B's surprise Selena Gomez collaboration tease brings Instagram critics and praise
Cardi B and Selena Gomez are making music together.
The rapper Cardi B posted an Instagram tease Friday highlighting the collaboration. The picture showed four director chairs from the new set which included one for Selena, DJ Snake and singer Ozuna.
"Soon come ;) ON SET !" Cardi B wrote.
She even featured a little directors chair for her one-month-old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus.
Some outspoken Cardi B fans on Instagram criticized the decision to collaborate with the "Back To You" singer Gomez.
Instagram user @mskenitha wrote, "If it's Selena Gomez, she's wack🤣🤣."
@roburnt wrote, "Ugh Selena really bout to ruin the whole song 🙄."
Other fans were quick to douse the negativity.
As @aubinashley wrote, "With this collab you already know whatever they cookin' is gonna be FIRE 🔥🔥🔥🔥"
And user @sadiebby wrote: "All the hate comments sound like you (expletive) all on the same broken record! Selena Gomez is fire AF and if you don’t have nothing nice to say then shut the (expletive) up. I’m excited to hear DJ snake collab with these ladies 💕"
Cardi B herself stepped in, tweeting:
"Selena Gomez is really what you think she is a (expletive) sweetheart ,sooo sweet a lay back."
Gomez posted post-session photographs on Instagram, including a picture hugging Cardi B with the caption, "Today was so fun."
During one posted video Gomez jokingly complained about her sweat from the studio performance. "But the queen looks flawless as always," she said, pointing the camera at Cardi B.
Cardi B is picking up right where she left off, returning to the spotlight with her VMAs appearance last week.
But Wednesday, she showed off the greatest collaboration of all, her baby with Offset. The rapper revealed a partial image with Kulture.
