The meaning behind Cardi B's 'Press' video is almost as iconic as Cardi herself.

Cardi B's 'Press' video is finally here and people can't get over the looks, the meaning and the stunning nude choreography.

There's no denying that Cardi B is one of the most exciting artists in music right now. After rocketing to global superstardom with 'Bodak Yellow' in 2017, the 26-year-old has released hit after hit after hit. Not only that but Cardi B consistently creates incredible visuals. From 'I Like That' to 'Money, she's released some of the most memorable music videos of the past year.

And 'Press' is no different. From the theme to the naked scenes, it proves that Cardi isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

The video opens with a threesome. However, things quickly turn violent and Cardi pulls out a gun. It's unclear if she murders anyone. We then see Cardi mocking an interrogator and entering court surrounded by press. During her case, people speak against her. The court blacks out and suddenly all of her detractors are seen lying on the ground dead. The video ends with Cardi in prison, drowning one of her fellow inmates. All the while, Cardi is dressed in the most glorious fashion.

The visual is also intercut with scenes of Cardi, and an army of female back up dancers, naked, with their nipples edited out, covered in blood, performing an arresting choreographed routine. Cardi is yet to explain what everything means but just like the song itself it seems that she is calling out the press for how invasive they are, while also reminding anyone who comes for her that she will "kill 'em all, put them hoes to rest".

Naturally, the fans are living for the nude scenes and everything in between. Here are a few of the reactions so far...
