Bruno Mars and Cardi B Team Up for ‘Finesse (Remix)’

Bruno Mars is kicking off the new year with fresh tunes. The singer has enlisted budding rapper Cardi B for the official remix to “Finesse.”

Cardi opens up the track with a hot verse, before handing it back to Mars. “Bossed up and I changed the game (you see me) / It’s my big Bronx boogie, got all them girls shook / My big, fat ass got all them boys hooked,” Cardi raps.

Along with the song premiere, Mars surprised fans with an accompanying visual. Co-directed by Mars and Florent Dechard, the ’90s-themed video pays homage to the sketch comedy series, In Living Color. 

“This video is dedicated to one my favorite T.V shows of all time,” Mars tweeted. He also thanked Keenan Ivory Wayans, the creator of the show. “Shout out to the people over at Fox Studios and a very special thank you to @keeneniwayans,” he wrote.

The original version of “Finesse” appears on Mars’ chart-topping album, 24K Magic.

Both Mars and Cardi are nominated for Grammys this year. Mars is up for six nominations including Album of the Year (24K Magic). Meanwhile, Cardi’s hit single “Bodak Yellow” scored her two nominations.

Over an alluring production, Scott sings about being so addicted to one’s love that it becomes unhealthy.
