She won’t cook, she won’t clean, but Cardi B is willing to give everything else a shot. Her new reality series, Cardi Tries, follows the rap star as she attempts to learn new skills outside of her career.
Cardi Tries is made in partnership with Jesse Collins Entertainment. New episodes will be released every Thursday until February 4, and are available to watch on Facebook. The series can also be viewed over video calls on Instagram Messenger and Messenger Rooms via the new Watch Together feature, according to Deadline.
New skills Bardi tries her hand at include race car driving and fire fighting. She’ll also be joined by special guests ranging fromFast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez to country singer Mickey Guyton and more.
The first episode, released yesterday (December 17), follows Cardi as she learns basic ballet techniques from renowned choreographer and Grey’s Anatomy actress Debbie Allen. “I feel like I’m wearing a condom on my feet,” Bardi quips as she slips into her tights and leotards. Later in the episode, the rap star also learns how to perform modern African dance.
After the series premiere, Cardi shared that Allen’s ballet lessons inspired a shot in her recent Billboard Woman of the Year photoshoot. In one picture, the rapper, dressed in a stunning blue polka dot dress, poses in a plié position (where both knees are bent outwards). “I got inspired to take this picture. One of my favorite pictures of all,” she tweeted to thank Allen. “You are the best !”

Cardi has been relatively quiet in 2020, but when she’s released music, she’s made it count. The rapper scored a smash hit in “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion and also collaborated with Anitta and Myke Towers for “Me Gusta.”
Earlier this month, it was reported that Cardi is due to appear in court sometime next year. She had been sued for using a person’s likeness without permission on the cover of her 2016 mixtape, Gangsta Bitch Music Vol 1.
