Watch Cardi B Hilariously Scold Fans for Making Her Sing Beyoncé’s ‘Texas Hold ‘Em’ Over and Over

Cowboy Cardi is in the house. During a recent TikTok livestream, Cardi B hilariously sang a snippet of “Texas Hold ‘Em” by Beyoncé over and over to appease her fans — because even she isn’t immune to the country craze Bey’s been inspiring.

For context, TikTok viewers can virtually send silly filters to creators when they go live — and in a clip from the rapper’s latest stream, her face is repeatedly covered by one that makes her look like she’s wearing a cowboy hat and mustache. Every time it happened, she sang a snippet of Bey’s Billboard Hot 100-topping track — “This ain’t Texas,” she warbled in her best Southern accent — while lovingly imploring viewers to stop selecting the filter.

“Alright stop, dead a–,” she tells them. “Stop right now.”

It seems that Cardi was doing her own version of the “NPC,” or “non-player character,” trend, which has exploded in popularity on the platform over the past year. The trend finds creators behaving as if they are video game avatars, spitting out repetitive automated responses in return for gifts.

“Texas Hold ‘Em” is one of two lead singles off Bey’s upcoming album Cowboy Carter, a sequel to Renaissance arriving March 29. In addition to blowing up on TikTok, the track topped the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks earlier this month and made the superstar the first Black woman to score a No. 1 hit on the Hot Country Songs chart.

Cardi is also fresh off of some new music, dropping both “Like What (Freestyle)” and “Enough (Miami)” in March.
