Having animals in a music video gives it more of an exotic vibe, but it can also be dangerous. Just ask Cardi B about the “Bodak Yellow” visual. Since the video was shot in Dubai, it was only right for Cardi to have scenes with a camel and a cheetah. Even though the Love & Hip Hop alum was sitting pretty next to the cheetah, shooting that scene did not go as smoothly as it seemed.
“I didn’t know how hard it was gonna be to get a cheetah out there,” Picture Perfect said in a recent interview. “We shot this scene we didn’t use, and he attacked Cardi in that scene.”
After a pep talk and getting a much calmer cheetah, the Bronx femcee agreed to shoot the scene over.
Watch below as Picture Perfect details what it was like behind the scenes of the “Bodak Yellow” video.
