Cardi B has already won Coachella, according to Google
Coachella is just a few days away, which means dozens of the music industry’s top artists — including The Weeknd, Haim, Sza, and more — will descend upon Indio, California for a jam-packed music festival.
But despite Coachella’s extensive lineup, according to Google, there is one artist in particular that people are excited about: Cardi.
In its Trends section this week, Google has been highlighting Coachella as a part of its featured insights. One of the insights offered is “search interest in most searched headliners by state, in the past week.” And well, We The People of the United States of America have spoken:
In every single state, Cardi is the most searched Coachella headliner.
Y’all! She’s even beating Beyoncé!
Google also offered further insight into search info, showing exactly what the interest levels for some of the top artists… and it’s not even close. Cardi is Queen.
Of course, this all should be taken with a grain of salt if you’re planning your Coachella schedule.
Google Trends is highlighting not interest in Coachella performances but rather interest in each artist, in general, based on Google searches. Given the particularly spectacular, news-making week the “bloody shoes”-wearing rapper has just completed, it makes total sense that searches for Cardi B would be peeking. After all, last Wednesday, Cardi released her debut album Invasion of Privacy, which was met with much wide-spread acclaim (including a whopping 8.7/10 from the seldom-impressed Pitchfork), she revealed her pregnancy on SNL over the weekend, and on Monday a riveting GQ profile of the artist came out where the world learned that Cardi knows way more about American presidents than the rest of us.
So while Cardi may be the name that’ll be buzzing all over Coachella, that doesn’t mean that people are uninterested in the other shows.
Coachella runs from April 13 — April 22, so there’s still time to plan which shows you hope to see. (And if you can’t get there, you can livestream many of the performances too.)
But if you’re tryna party with Cardi, know that you’re going to have a lot of competition.
