Cardi B and Paul McCartney link up for “Big Booty Yellow Submarine”
by Conor Green
In the year 2018, Paul McCartney is a mere antiquated figure, vaguely remembered for his role in the once popular band, “The Beatles.” For the past decade, McCartney has struggled to revamp his dying career. It seems that his treasured “rock and roll” has faded into obscurity. The youth have moved on to bigger and better things, like trap music. Leading this new wave of trap music is Bronx’s stripper-turned-rapper, Cardi B. It would be an understatement that Cardi is the most buzzing artist in the world right now. With constant radio play, four songs on the Billboard Hot 100, and over 20 million Instagram followers, it is impossible to not see or hear Cardi somewhere.
Considered the most prominent talent of the millenium, Cardi B has nearly everyone in the music industry wanting to hop on a track with her. A Cardi B feature can make someone’s career, even for the most untalented artists. This is why McCartney so relentlessly hounded Cardi for a feature. McCartney had no shame sliding into her DMs and getting on his knees to beg. When asked about this, McCartney bluntly replied, “I’ve been fiending for some clout.”
While it may have eroded some of his pride, all of the begging paid off for him. The two artists teamed up this past month to crank out a banger titled, “Big Booty Yellow Submarine.” Dropped exclusively on Soundcloud, the track has been doing numbers since being released. Cardi really did bring the best out of the usually low energy McCartney on this track. McCartney, aided by autotune, flawlessly sings the enticing hook, “She gonna shake that booty like Yoko Ono (f***k John) / yeah, yeah, YEAH!/ you don’t want no smoke, no, no, no, NO.”
Cardi handles the bulk of the song’s lyrical content, spitting not one, but two full verses. The highlight of her contributions are when she unapologetically disses The Beatles in the middle of the song, saying “The Beatles steady ripping Migos, Ringo always rocking fake designer/he a goofy/I am turnt like a smoothie.” That has got to be one of the hardest lines in rap history and once again proves Cardi’s superiority over overrated groups like The Beatles.
Even McCartney has moved on, telling XXL, “‘Big Booty Yellow Submarine’ marks a new chapter in my artistry. Yes, the Beatle years were fun, but I feel as if I am truly hitting my creative peak right now. For that, I can thank my biggest inspirations, Gucci ‘Guwop’ Mane and Chief ‘Almighty Sosa’ Keef. I hope my upcoming mixtape, ‘Beatle turned Big Balla’ will continue to bring me more precious clout that I so dearly cherish.” McCartney is apparently hungry for more success.
It is rumoured that Tay-K, despite being in prison, will be featured on the remix to “Big Booty Yellow Submarine.” What could be better than that?
