Cardi B may have left the 24K Magic Tour, but Bruno Mars is making sure her presence remains felt.
Bruno Mars is a man of honor. As you might know, the acclaimed singer has been hard at work on the 24K Magic Tour, which has recently kicked off with a string of dates. While Cardi B was slated to accompany Bruno for the duration, the birth of her daughter Kulture ultimately led to Cardi's respectful departure from the lineup. Bruno responded to the news with his blessing, and now that the tour has popped off, he has made sure to keep her presence alive.
Case in point, Bruno has inserted Cardi's "Bodak Yellow" into his nightly setlist, adding his own uptempo take on the banger. A multi-instrumentalist through and through, Mars proceeds to hold it down on the drums, laying down percussion for the often-extended jam session that follows. It's certainly a testament to his talent and creativity, and one has to wonder if he could hold his own in a drum-off with Anderson .Paak.
Watch Bruno Mars pay homage below, via a real-time "Uptown Funk/Bodak Yellow" mash-up. Say what you will about the man's music, but you can't deny that such musicianship should be respected. Shout out to Bruno for this one.
