Cardi B came out for The Tonight Show on December 20 and had Fallon in stitches by the end of the interview, due largely to what has become her signature "zing" sound effects.


According to the Associated Press, Cardi B's gig on The Tonight Show will mark the show's first ever co-hosted episode.

"Then it was my Instagram name, Bacardi B, but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted; I think it was Bacardi that had something to do with it so I just shortened it to Cardi B", the Love & Hip Hop alum told Fallon.

Cardi B says the male model on the cover is a "young, dark-skinned male". Collins has become known for making the women she photographs appear both alive and otherworldly, having worked with the likes of Gucci and Selena Gomez.
