Several days later, a Brooklyn D.J. and producer who goes by DJ iMarkkeyz saw his fans tagging him in the video’s comments with a familiar request: “you know what to do.” To his 150,000 followers on Instagram, iMarkkeyz is known for “remixing” memes and viral clips. (He recently made a song from Chaka Khan’s acrobatic rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner during last month’s N.B.A. All-Star game.) As he said in an email interview, he makes between four and seven beats a day on Ableton, and he already had a particularly hot one that fit the cadence of Cardi saying “coronavirus.”

Everybody on the shoot had to get tested for coronavirus.” She adds, “We had a tiger and a leopard there, but we didn’t film with them in there because of safety and because of the pandemic. We spliced those scenes together.” A detail that drew the ire of Tiger King's Carole Baskin, who previously recorded a Cameo video for the rapper. But Cardi says she's not going to engage with Baskin, “Like, that’s just ridiculous you know? Oh, Lord. Like, girl, you killed your goddamn husband.” (Something Carole has always vehemently denied.)

“We had to spend $100,000 dollars just on testing,” she told i-D in a recent interview. “Everybody on the shoot had to get tested for coronavirus.” The threat of contagion also limited the kinds of scenes the stars could shoot, as Cardi explained that neither she nor Megan could film their scenes in the same room with the big cats on set. “We had a tiger and a leopard there, but we didn’t film with them in there because of safety and because of the pandemic. We spliced those scenes together,” she added.

“If the beat does not have any samples except for Cardi’s voice, an approval should be secured from Atlantic (WMG) and from Cardi herself on the master side, and [the publisher] may consider this a publishing use,” adds Deborah Mannis-Gardner, who specializes in music clearances for film, television, samples, and new technology. This would not be a worst-case scenario for iMarkkeyz. “I could see her label treating this as a remix and claim 100 percent ownership of the master, and then pay the producer a royalty,” Mannis-Gardner says.
