Good poll. I think I have to go with OTW even though “boo’d up” has a better shot at being sots

i was at a bar last nite and they played each of these 2 times in under 2 hours lol

can’t decide yet, but the energy of cardi verses on ‘i like it’ is thrilling

"i like it" has sounded v good on these blisteringly hot sunny days tho

could go any way here but i think it's "boo'd up"

yeah, all great but "boo'd up" for me as well

Comparing these songs feels weird to me. Way different universes of sound.

All three are ace but “boo’d up” is such a delight.

have a real soft spot for "otw" but i voted "boo'd up"... i don't really rate "i like it"

OTW is a shade too repetitive for me. Have to go w Cardi

Simon H., Monday, 18 June 2018 16:00 (one month ago) Permalink

agree with jordan that "I like it" is a level below the other 2. have to think about my vote for a couple of days tho

every time I've heard "boo'd up" in public has been an absolute still-unexpected joy

"boo'd up" is so sumptuous and layered, it cuts a pretty remarkable figure whenever it comes on the radio, especially when surrounded by other soundcloud-propelled urban radio hits

paul mccartney & whinge (voodoo chili), Monday, 18 June 2018 16:19 (one month ago) Permalink

"otw" is great, just not quite as sonically immersive or charming as "boo'd up." "i like it" is lively and entertaining and cardi's verse is great, but the i'm a little turned off by the generic latin pop backing track.

boo'd up feels simultaneously very now and very retro at the same time

retro as in 2000s

Boo’d up just chills me right out and like it fires me up. Depends on the moment, already voted like it but boo’d up made cleaning up so much more lovely today.

flopson, Monday, 18 June 2018 18:37 (one month ago) Permalink

the other 2 are more sui generis whereas ‘i like it’ is just like the perfection of the cardi b formula, also i don’t love the guest verses... her verse and chorus seriously drive me wild tho

i cant get over "I Like It" sample being super obvious, i mean that shit was in fucking burger king commercials in the 90s, i associate it w lame television ads

idk I feel like the obviousness is kind of the point

Cardi's exuberance saves it anyway

Number None, Monday, 18 June 2018 21:45 (one month ago) Permalink

im not saying its a bad song, just hard for me to feel any kind of totalizing excitement for when its so overfamiliar ... 22 years later & the saturation effect is still with me

i can see the sample being a dealbreaker. i uh, like it but i love big dumb & obvious

flopson, Monday, 18 June 2018 22:15 (one month ago) Permalink

i'm very neutral on cardi b the musician but i do think she has a unique ability to use super obvious samples and not have it come off as cynical... there's something about the personality she's cultivated on/off record that makes it feel like, idk, someone revealing the parts of their taste that crosses over w/ the masses in a way that does not feel like pure piggybacking off the song in question? or maybe she's just good at picking super obvious samples... her remake of "chickenhead" is on the one hand very "obvious" given the current cultural moment but also i can't think of many other contemporary rappers who could do something off that record in a way that could make it feel both novel and genuine. it stands in clear contrast to all the recent re-uses of "slob on my knob" to me

also i think w/ "i like it" there's an element of there obv being an unprecedented explosion of popularity of latin music in america right now, and so there's a celebratory/victory lap element to doing that song w/ bad bunny & j balvin on it in a way that i think justifies the obviousness of it. like idk if rap rarely if ever charted and then there was all of a sudden 8 rappers who become superstars and three of them re-did "rappers delight" i might rock with it

personally im just not a huge fan of "i like it" the original which neuters my ability to enjoy the cardi b version of it but im not mad at it

I did not expect a Mustard-beat to be my song of the summer in 2018. He is actually halfway to Ten.

Frederik B, Monday, 18 June 2018 23:09 (one month ago) Permalink

i feel like the only person on the internet who does not think "boo'd up" is a complete revelation. like it's fine and i'm happy to see it doing well but... like, i haven't even listened to any of her other music and i'd be shocked if there weren't something better on her ep.

dyl, Monday, 18 June 2018 23:33 (one month ago) Permalink

^ I don’t think it’s a revelation either, just a good track.
Reaction seems similar to ilms sacred cow KING

i like Boo'd Up but was kinda disappointed to find out mustard produced it and not cardo. he should give him a production credit or a percentage for ripping his sound wholesale.

a song i like didn't do as well as i thought it would so therefore most people didn't listen to it
