Rumor has it Cardi B has a lookalike.
While the 28-year-old rapper spent this past weekend dripping in $2.5 million worth of diamonds while performing at Sunday’s Hot 97 Summer Jam at MetLife Stadium, her doppelgänger was casually causing Cardi fans to say, “WAP what?”
A New York woman by the name of Ashley has gone viral after her hairstylist Claudelande posted a video of her client sporting a wig with Cardi B-inspired baby hair while the rapper’s hit song “Up” played in the background.
Wearing a white tank and jeans, Ashley can be seen in the TikTok clip shaking her tousled tresses around, leaving the hair salon quite pleased with her new look — while leaving fans shooketh that they might have discovered the Grammy Award-winning artist’s long-lost twin.
“I’ve never seen someone look SO MUCH like someone else and not be related to them,” one fan remarked on Twitter.
Other fans jokingly started referring to Ashley as Cardi C and mused that they could be sisters.
Despite the striking resemblance, the woman at the center of it all doesn’t seem to think she looks anything like the “Love & Hip-Hop” alum. However, she said she has been told she looks like the rapper ever since Cardi — currently burning up the charts with Lizzo in the sizzling new single “Rumors” — debuted on the popular VH1 series in 2015.
“Everywhere I go, [I hear] ‘She looks like Cardi B.’ They’ll say it under their breath, and I’ll hear it,” Ashley told Allure. “I literally try to look every time somebody says it, but I don’t see it.”
The video, which was originally posted on TikTok on Aug. 12, currently has close to 40,000 views.
Of course, Ashley isn’t the only non-celeb who finds strangers turning toward them and asking, “Say, isn’t that … ?” Doppelgängers have popped up recently for stars like “Shake It Off” singer Taylor Swift, Hollywood hottie Brad Pitt, “You” actor Penn Badgley, One Direction alum Harry Styles and “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston.
