When you come to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, you might as well throw your low-carb diet out the window.

Many came prepared to dance off those calories at the Cardi B show.


"I'm excited to see what she's going to bring to the rodeo. Something new. Something fun. It's definitely out of the realm of what we're used to, so I'm excited," Bianca Gonzales said.

"I'm so excited. The first time I heard her was Hurricane Harvey. I was in my house heard her on iHeart radio. She was amazing," Michelle Vazquez said.

The Grammy-award winning rapper performed in front of a sold-out crowd on Black Heritage Day.
