LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - JUNE 22: Cardi B performs onstage at the STAPLES Center Concert Sponsored By Sprite during BET Experience at Staples Center on June 22, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Fresh off her collaboration with Brazlian star Anitta, Cardi B has joined K-pop quartet Blackpink on “Bet You Wanna.” The track is from Blackpink’s first full-length studio effort, The Album.

Co-written by Ryan Tedder and Melanie Joy Fontana, the track is a club song, and on it the Bronx rapper offers up a fierce verse. “One of a kind, you can’t replace me / Time to shine, I bust down the AP,” Cardi B raps on the track.

Blackpink recently spoke with The Associated Press, and talked about getting a verse from the Grammy Award-winning MC. “We were screaming in the studio,” said the group. “It was our first time having a rapper feature for our song. As soon as we heard the voice, we [screamed].”

The Album also features the quartet’s singles “How You Like That” and “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez.
