“You know what, my sister name is Hennessy, so everybody used to call be Bacardi,” Cardi – whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar – shared. “Then it was my Instagram name, Bacardi, Bacardi B, but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted, and you know what I think it was Bacardi [the alcohol company] that had something to do with it. So I just changed it to Cardi B.”

Cardi will be dropping her new song “Bartier Cardi” with 21 Savage this Friday!
