“Bodak Yellow” is the turn-up track that brings people together.

Cardi B’s record-breaking hit has not only made it on the Hot 100, but the confident bop continues to inspire turnt up vibes–even in a New York City subway station.

Twitter user Matt Whitlock posted a video of a group of commuters enjoying the track, which soon went viral. “Play ‘Bodak Yellow’ anywhere and a party will start, guaranteed,” he wrote. “@iamcardib brings the people together. #nycsubway.”

Supermodel Gigi Hadid retweeted the clip, adding: “This made me happy and have fomo I wasn’t there.” But this isn’t the only Bodak-inspired incident. The Philadelphia Eagles recently showed off some team unity with a pre-game turn-up session. Cardi later reshared the video and wrote: “Reason why Bodak Yellow is [Grammy] nominated 😏cause no matter how much you front !you turn up like this when it comes on.”
