Cardi B and Patti LaBelle go together like sweet potato pie and whipped cream.
While they hadn’t been formally introduced prior to this partnership, LaBelle explained how she had felt like she and the “Bodak Yellow” rapper were “supposed to be together” for a long time.
Cardi agreed that their union was a longtime coming but that didn’t make her any less nervous to meet the R&B legend.
It isn’t just LaBelle’s impressive musical career that had Cardi mystified, she is also impressed by her food brand, Patti’s Good Life.
LaBelle’s prepared food line includes a range of fresh and frozen items like macaroni and cheese, banana pudding and of course, her famous pies. Patti’s Good Life has been around for 15 years and the brand grossed about $200 million last year alone, per Forbes.
“I got to take [inspiration] from you,” Cardi says in reference to her own food line, Whipshots. The boozy whipped cream was released almost two years ago and comes in pumpkin spice, peppermint, vanilla, mocha and caramel, all of which have 10% ABV.
The musicians are joining forces with their food brands to get in the holiday spirit with a social campaign starting Nov. 9
