Watch Cardi B cover Fall Out Boy’s ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down’

Cardi B has started 2023 in style by taking to the microphone to perform Fall Out Boy’s ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down’.

The moment was captured by TikTok user @lippyleah, who filmed it at E11EVEN nightclub. She shared a video that shows Cardi singing along to the pop-punk hit while also sipping on a glass of champagne. The track originally appeared on the band’s 2005 album From Under The Cork Tree, and remains one of their most beloved hits.

In the caption of the post, the TikTok user wrote: “Cardi B singing Fall Out Boy first thing after midnight on New Year’s Day is exactly how I wanted to start my year.”

Last year, Cardi B also surprisingly revealed she’s a fan of the noughties emo band, My Chemical Romance. The Bronx rapper shared a clip of the group’s 2004 track, ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise)’ and captioned the post: “They don’t make music like this anymore”. In response, MCR replied to her tweet and said: “Grazie mille Cardi!”

Cardi had reason to celebrate when she sang Fall Out Boy. A judge in California upheld her recent win at a trial where she was found not liable for misappropriating a fragment of Kevin Brophy’s back tattoo on the cover of her Gangsta Bitch Music Vol.1 mixtape, released back in 2016.

In a statement, District Judge Cormac J. Carney said: “The jury had an ample basis for its verdict. For example, the jury could have reasonably concluded that the back tattoo on the model on the mixtape cover at issue in this suit was not sufficiently identifiable with Brophy to constitute misappropriation of his likeness or depiction in a false light. Because the model’s face is not visible, identification based on facial appearance is impossible.”

The statement continued: “Most importantly, Brophy’s tattoo played a minor role in what was a larger visual commentary on sexual politics. Brophy’s tattoo was but one tattoo on the back of the model, who was himself but one part of a suggestive portrayal of a man with his head between Cardi B’s legs while she was in the backseat of a vehicle and drank an alcoholic beverage.”
