Desi Twitter users were surprised and intrigued to hear a familiar tune playing in the background of American rapper Cardi B's video recently. The 28-year-old created waves on social media Sunday when she released a short clip teasing a bigger announcement to come soon. In the clip, Cardi B appears on top of a staircase and says, "I got an announcement to make tomorrow -- bye."
The cryptic message instantly set Twitter abuzz with speculation. Some fans wondered if Cardi B was teasing the release of a new album, while others wagered that she would be unveiling a new single. However, the video grabbed eyeballs on desi Twitter for a completely different reason - Cardi B's choice of background music.
Desi Twitter users were quick to notice that Kaliyon ka Chaman from the 1981 Bollywood movie Jyoti began playing as Cardi B descended the staircase in the 12-second video. The video has been viewed over 6 lakh times on Twitter.
