Cardi B has dropped off her newest track “Bet It,” which appears on the soundtrack of Halle Berry’s film Bruised.

Clocking in at two minutes and 40 seconds, “Bet It” hears Cardi chronicle her rise from TV to one of rap’s biggest stars. With lines like “Started on the pole, in the end, don’t regret it/They’ll use the past against you if you let it” and “Paid dues, and I’m so focused/’Cause the money never made me, bein’ broke did, bitch,” the rapper pays her respects to her past and looks forward to her future while still staying true to her roots.

Bruised stars and is directed by Berry, who portrays an ageing MMA fighter:

“Jackie Justice (Halle Berry) is a mixed martial arts fighter who leaves the sport in disgrace. Down on her luck and simmering with rage and regret years after her fight, she’s coaxed into a brutal underground fight by her manager and boyfriend Desi (Adan Canto) and grabs the attention of a fight league promoter (Shamier Anderson) who promises Jackie a life back in the octagon. But the road to redemption becomes unexpectedly personal when Manny (Danny Boyd, Jr.) — the son she gave up as an infant — shows up at her doorstep. BRUISED marks the directorial debut of Academy Award winner Halle Berry and also stars Adriane Lenox, Sheila Atim, Valentina Shevchenko, and Stephen McKinley Henderson in a triumphant story of a fighter who reclaims her power, in and out of the ring, when everyone has counted her out.”

Stream Cardi B’s “Bet It” on Spotify and Apple Music, and watch Bruised on Netflix.
