Cardi B Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah baby, I like it like that
You gotta believe me when I tell you
I said I like it like that
You gotta believe me when I tell you
I said I like it like

Now I like dollars, I like diamonds
I like stunting, I like shining
I like million dollar deals
Where's my pen? Bitch I'm signin'
I like those Balenciagas, the ones that look like socks
I like going to the jeweler, I put rocks all in my watch
I like texts from my exes when they want a second chance
I like proving niggas wrong, I do what they say I can't
They call me Cardi Bardi, banging body
Spicy mami, hot tamale
Hotter than a Somali, fur coat, Ferrari
Hop out the stu', jump in the coupe (coupe)
Big Dipper on top of the roof
Flexing on bitches as hard as I can
Eating halal, driving the Lam'
Told that bitch I'm sorry though
'Bout my coins like Mario (Mario)
Yeah they call me Cardi B, I run this shit like cardio
Oh, facts

Diamond district in the Jag' (I said I like it like that)
Certified, you know I'm gang, gang, gang, gang (I said I like it like)
Drop the top and blow the brains (I said I like it like that)
Oh, he's so handsome, what's his name? (I said I like it)
Oh, I need the dollars (I said I like it like that) (ch-ching)
Beat it up like piñatas (I said I like it like)
Tell the driver, close the curtains (I said I like it like that)
Bad bitch make him nervous (I said I like it)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "I Like It" talk about Cardi B's love for luxury and her admiration for Latino culture. The hook, "I like it like that, you gotta believe me when I tell ya," is a nod to the 1997 song by Pete Rodriguez of the same name, a popular track in the Latinx community. The verses highlight Cardi B's love for money, diamonds, and Balenciaga sneakers. She also talks about her love for proving people wrong and her confidence in her own abilities. Cardi B's pride in her Latino heritage is also evident in the song as she raps about her love for various Latin cultures such as Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican and Venezuelan.


The song is a celebration of Latinx culture and features both Cardi B and Bad Bunny rapping in Spanish. The track was produced by J. White Did It and features samples of Tito Nieves's "I Like It Like That" and "Salsa" by Willie Colón and Héctor Lavoe. The song was released as the fourth single from Cardi B's debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, in May 2018. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 2018, making it the first song by a female rapper to top the chart in two years.
