Cardi B Didn’t Realize Coachella Was A Big Deal When She Booked The Gig



Cardi B admits to not knowing how big Coachella is when she got booked for the music festival six months ago.

The 25-year-old singer also said that she would be making $70,000 per show at the festival.

During her recent interview with SiriusXM's Hip Hop Nation, the "Bodak Yellow" singer candidly said that she also had no idea how many people attend Coachella. Cardi B revealed that on Wednesday, April 11, she will be flying to Los Angeles to rehearse for her set and the practice session on stage could last for 10 hours.

"Coz I'm performing new songs... you gotta get it right," said Cardi B.

The "MotorSport" singer also revealed that she will be investing a ton of money on her stage set for Coachella. She will be using her savings for it, she added. This suggests that her $70,000 income per show is not enough to cover the $300,000 cost of her set.

Cardi B's interviewer said that her fans would love her more for being so selfless. The singer agreed with him.
