You won't believe how much Cardi B spends on her music videos

Mega superstar Cardi B spares no expense when it comes to her music videos.

On Wednesday, the rapper revealed just how she pays for the videos of some her chart-topping hits, which each has surpassed one million YouTube views.

"Fun fact: "Bodak Yellow" music video cost me $15,000. I was in Dubai and I said...I gotta fly picture [videographer] out here...BOOM BOOM BANG! Ya know the rest," Cardi tweeted.

Responding to a fan who said that was "a lot," Cardi said, "Na honey..."'Money' cost $400k, 'Please Me' [with Bruno Mars] cost $900K, 'WAP' [with Megan Thee Stallion] cost a M!"

Cardi went on answering more questions about her pricey music videos, saying Invasion of Privacy's "Be Careful" cost roughly $200K, while 2016's "Foreva" from her mixtape, Gangsta B**** Music, Vol. 2cost about $8,000.

Though the "Lick" video was priced at $15,000, Cardi said the price went up due to her husband Offset's expensive wardrobe fee.

"I think [I spent] like 15K," wrote Cardi, responding to a fan. "Offset had a $40K wardrobe fee for videos so I had to pay it out my pocket cause I didn't wanna look like a small artist with a tiny [butt] music video budget .....I told him like a year later."

Cardi also revealed she was pregnant with the couple's daughter, Kulture, while filming the Petra Collins-directed video for "Bartier Cardi" featuring 21-Savage.

"Bartier was like $150K and I was pregnant so I was trying my best to conceal my tiny belly," Cardi tweeted. "I felt uncomfortable in the car cause I really wanted to be sexy with Offset but I was looking very pregnant so I didn't felt sexy."
