    Well, if you've ever wondered precisely how much a hugely popular music video would set you back, then Cardi has the answer for you.

    Spoiler: It's a lot.

    Earlier today, Cardi took to Twitter to share a fun fact: "Bodak Yellow" cost $15,000.

    However, this is a drop in the ocean compared to the cost of Cardi's later videos.

    Yup: $400k for "Money," $900k for "Please Me," and a million for "WAP."

    In the case of "WAP," we know that $100,000 was spent on COVID-19 testing.

    As for "Press," Cardi isn't sure how much it cost.

    I’m not sure .I don’t really remember https://t.co/FZwgd6Rghx

    The cost of "I Like It" has also been lost to the sands of time.

    I totally forgot ...I was extremely annoyed that day .I was pregnant and hot and paparazzi was being so annoying and rude. https://t.co/T6kcga7SBs

    "Be Careful" was "not much" — $200k.

    Cardi personally paid Offset's $40k wardrobe fee for "Lick."

    I think like 15K .Offset had a 40K wardrobe fee for videos so I had to pay it out my pocket cause I didn’t wanna look like a small artist with a tiny ass music video budget .....I told him like a year later 😩😩😂😂 https://t.co/sEnPPkMkm1

    2016's "Foreva" was $8k.

    And "Bartier" was $150k.

    Bartier was like 150K and I was pregnant so I was trying my best to conceal my tiny belly .I felt uncomfortable in the car cause I really wanted to be sexy with offset but I was looking very pregnant so I didn’t felt sexy I was looking fat . https://t.co/olR7EMnttS
