The 2017 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball North concert served some serious looks – we see you, satin-wearing Shay Mitchell – and gifted both #Harmonizers and the #BardiGang fans this dual-genre crossover reveal: Cardi B is a Fifth Harmony fan. While the “Bodak Yellow” rapper may be the hottest act in hip-hop right now, she proved she’s still in touch with the top bops of the pop world by completely fangirling over 5H members Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei.
Following their backstage meetup, the South Bronx rapper took to Instagram to gush over the love she has for the quartet:
“I finally met them @normanikordei @laurenjauregui i met the other two four minutes later @allybrooke@dinahjane97 ,” she wrote. “Congrats girlies! You guys are so young and talented. Make money moves and smart moves and be rich Foreevaaaaaaa!!”
In a (money) move that proved that the respect and adoration was mutual, both Jauregui and Kordei posted their own snaps of the IRL introduction with captions that rivaled Cardi B’s fangirl moment.
“highlight of my entire life damn,” wrote Jauregui. “I RAN down the hallway because we went on right after her and I was getting dressed but I heard Bodak through the walls and literally jetted to the stage yelling the lyrics lmao. @iamcardib you’re a QUEEN and I love u.”
While Kordei’s caption wasn’t as verbose, her on-point “Motorsport” lyrics proved her status as a member of the #BardiGang.
While their meet-and-greet was the first time the chart-topping ladies crossed paths in the flesh, 5H members Kordei and Dinah Jane busted some moves while dancing to the track “Foreva” off of the rapper’s very first mixtape back in 2016.
TBH, we’re holding our breath waiting for the 5H x Cardi B collab that is sure to be straight fire.
