Note that Rihanna is today known as the world's richest female musician and Jay Z, hip-hop's first billionaire.

More recently, Rihanna's Savage x Fenty lingerie line was valued at $1 billion.

Cardi B revealed that when she first got into the music industry, she looked up to no one as she didn't really 'understand the game'.

Explaining her reasons for picking Rihanna, she said:

"I just feel like they're so influential because Rihanna comes from a country, a Caribbean country, that my parents came from and she's a whole billionaire. But for her to make her business so big and be a billionaire, that's what I strive to be. That's what I want. I want to be a billion-dollar woman. I want to build a huge brand."

On choosing Jay z, she explained:

"And Jay-Z, he's from the hood just like me. He's from the hood, and this man's a whole billionaire. And that's just all about strategy, and that's just all about shaking hands, that's just all about putting plans together."

When asked about plans to put out an album, the Bodak Yellow artist explained why it would be difficult, explaining why Beyonce was successful with her 2016's Lemonade and 2020's Black is King album.

She said:

"It literally takes me a whole month to literally do one song. And let's say I got six trap songs. Like Beyoncé, she did a visual album but all the songs is R&B. R&B usually has a story. So let's say I have six trap songs on my album, right? What story is it really telling?"

Meanwhile, Cardi B loves fashion and always does the most when it comes to her looks. The stunning rapper recently left many jaws on the floor with her live performance of WAP along with Megan Thee Stallion.

Cardi revealed that the outfit she wore for the lit performance weighed a massive 18.4 pounds (8.3kg).
