Cardi B knows how to slay!
The 26-year-old rapper set the tone for the 2019 BET Awards on Sunday night as the crowd got hyped with a sexy, high-energy opening number.
To oohs and aahs from the watching audience, Cardi gave her husband, Offset, a sexy lap dance on stage while performing her hit track, "Press."
Cardi looked incredible in a sparkly green look as she danced on top of her hubby, before completing the mind-blowing opening performance with a choreographed dance alongside incredible backup dancers.
Cardi teased her performance hours before the show. "Sooo I'm opening the show today and my anxiety is killing me. Wish me luck guys. BET AWARDS," she tweeted on Sunday morning.

It's been a week of ups and downs for Cardi, who was indicted by a grand jury in Queens, New York, on Friday, connected to misdemeanor charges stemming from an August altercation at a strip club. The rapper is clearly focusing on the positive and putting on a show for her fans.
