In a 13-minute video for W magazine, the Bronx rapper dabbles in autonomous sensory meridian response, better known as ASMR. In the clip, she plays with soothing voices, whispers and her signature “Okkurrr” ad-lib. She also can’t help but fondle a pair of long cylindrical microphones throughout the process.
It’s not as random a stunt as it may seem. Back in a 2017 interview, Cardi spoke about her love for the ASMR, explaining how she found the sounds soothing and that they helped her go to sleep. Back in January, she tweeted that Offset thinks she’s weird because she watches a lot of ASMR videos “like all damn day.”
