In The Rotation: “Please Me” by Cardi B and Bruno Mars

Just days after making history at the Grammys as the first solo female artist to win Best Rap Album, Cardi B is back with another collaboration alongside Bruno Mars. “Please Me” takes on a smoother vibe from their previous “Finesse (Remix).” Mars continues his masterful streak of a ‘90s R&B essence to his music and “Please Me” is a seductive bedroom jam to top off any date night. For music listeners who were fans of artists like Jodeci, H-Town or Adina Howard, then this is the perfect song to put on repeat.

Cardi dominated the charts in 2018 and she’s showing no signs of slowing down as she prepares to release her sophomore album. This week, videos surfaced of Cardi filming music videos with artists like Blueface and DJ Khaled. While Cardi had to cancel touring with Mars last year, perhaps this collaboration is a sign the two will make it up to fans with a set of new shows.
