Cardi B took a break from being a mommy to her baby girl Kulture to return to the stage this week at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival. It marked her first performance since giving birth in July.

Cardi woo'd the crowd, performing some of her smash hits including "Bodack Yellow" and "I Like It." But it wasn't just her music that stole the show -- but also her call to action to rally people to vote.

"Last election, everybody took it as a joke, even me, I'm not even gonna front, because I thought, 'Man, that person ain't going to win.' And look where we at now," The 25-year-old admitted, urging everyone to vote in November.  "We need someone that's gonna represent us, that's gonna protect us, not put us with beef with everybody else."

Her speech served as an intro for none other than our forever first lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama has been working with the "When We All Vote" campaign to bring awareness to the importance of the midterm elections.

The Bronx rapper's words hit home for many. Twitter eagerly expressed their gratitude to both Cardi and Obama for their work in getting people out and voting.



Cardi, you ain't never lied! Check out her full speech below.
