The rapper didn’t do it onstage, instead posting to Instagram before the show. She can be heard backstage while filming a poster of Selena in a purple leather jacket and sparkling bustier.
“This was the inspo for ‘Please Me,'” Cardi says.
The video for “Please Me” featuring Bruno Mars dropped Friday. In the clip, Cardi is seen sporting a purple leather jacket with fringe and a bustier.
Selena frequently wore a similar look. It’s featured on the cover of her Grammy-winning “Live” album. The purple ensemble is also seen on Selena’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.
Cardi B has frequently mentioned the late Tejano singer. She called herself the “trap Selena” in the songs “Motor Sport” and “Dinero” featuring Jennifer Lopez
She even riffed on Selena’s “Dreaming of You.”
“I said Trap Selena because who didn’t want to be Selena? She is a alter ego that everybody would want to be and I want the world to know how much I love her,” Cardi once tweeted.
