Cardi B didn’t end up appearing with Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl last month, but her performance over Super Bowl weekend with a different artist made some history of its own.
Billboard reports that Cardi’s performance with Bruno Mars February 2 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest, set a new record for the 20-year-old venue. That single show grossed $6.473 million, the highest single-night take in the venue’s history.
The only artist who’s earned more than Cardi and Bruno at that venue was Garth Brooks in 2014: He earned $6.634 million, but it took him seven nights to do it.
It just goes to show that people love Bruno and Cardi together: Not only was their “Finesse” remix a smash, but their single, “Please Me,” is already a top five hit, and may go even higher now that the video has dropped.
