As Cardi B steps away from the usual highly sampled production and focuses more on lyricism, this track makes you want to attack whatever 2021 has for us head-on, like the main character of our own action film.

As an edit, i listened to this song more then 100 times already. I think i'm going insane.

I really don't know how the score is so low this is a banger. I'm really surprised by the evolution of Cardi B, unfortunately I was once a person who negatively judged the rapper's music for her personal decisions but objectively it's undeniable to confirm how energetic and fun this song is, Cardi's flow is fantastic and the chorus despite underwhelming on first listen it ends up literally stuck in the head. I was not bored at any point of "Up" further containing a great production, ... read more
