Cardi B Raking in $70K per Day for Coachella
Now this is some serious schmoney.
Appearing on SiriusXM’s Hip Hop Nation radio show on Tuesday (April 10), Cardi B revealed that she is set to make $70,000 per day for her appearances at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this month, bringing her fee to a grand total of $140,000 for the two days she'll perform (April 15 and April 22).
However, the rapper, who released her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, on April 6, revealed that she is spending nearly $300,000 on her stage set, calling the expensive setup an "investment," Billboard reports.
The artist also explained she hadn't realized "Coachella was such a big deal" before signing on to perform at the iconic festival.
Cardi B has been heavily focused on the promotional cycle for her debut album, appearing on The Tonight Show as a guest co-host alongside Jimmy Fallon on Monday, April 9, as well as performing on Saturday Night Live on April 7, where she announced her pregnancy with an onstage baby bump reveal.
