The lyrics to "Finesse" are just about having a good time and being yourself. The video shows the same thing, as well.
The video, which is an homage to the show "In Living Color," has been up since Jan. 3, 2018, and already has over 100 million views on Youtube.
The video even got some attention from "In Living Color" star Jim Carrey. He tweeted at Cardi B and Bruno Mars telling them how much he loved the video on Jan. 12, 2018
He said it in "the most Jim Carrey way" possible: "@iamcardib and @BrunoMars Great song, beautiful memories. Really gave me a kick. Spank you kindly! ;^)"
The chorus of the song is "We out here drippin' in finesse. It don't make no sense. Out here drippin' in finesse. You know it, you know it. We out here drippin' in finesse. It don't make no sense. Out here drippin' in finesse. You know it, you know it." The lyrics just express having fun and making every bad situation into a good one.
The songs starts out with Cardi B's rap and then goes into a 90s hip-hop feel as Bruno Mars is singing.
