Cardi B got her nickname in childhood, and it has stuck with her up until the present.
During an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Cardi B said that she was called Bacardi while growing up because her sister’s name is Hennessy, which she eventually shortened to Cardi B. But now, at long last, we can all know what Cardi B’s true name is.
It has been a true joy for the internet.
Here it is.
Cardi B’s real name is Belcalis Almanzar.
It sounds like a villain in Harry Potter.
Cardi B grew up in the Bronx and has said in the past “my name is Belcalis. Growing up people called me Bacardi cause my sister name is Hennessy ..FYI.”
