Pete Rodriguez is a Cardi B fan after hearing “I Like It”

Pete Rodriguez, the Puerto Rican singer sampled on Cardi B’s “I Like It,” has conceded that he had never heard of her prior to landing on the song of the summer contender.

Rodriguez, now 86, released the original “I Like It” in 1967.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Rodriguez said his family informed him that the chorus from his song had been sampled by Cardi.

Rodriguez now counts himself as a Cardi B fan after an education from the younger members of his family.

“I wasn’t aware of Cardi, but my kids and grandkids were. They were all excited; they’re fans,” he said.

Last week Cardi B pulled out of an upcoming tour with Bruno Mars as she spends time adjusting to the birth of her first daughter, Kulture.

She also suggested that she will release a new project before the end of the year.

OG “I Like It Like That” Creator Gives His Take On Cardi B’s Version

Cardi B, J. Balvin, Bad Bunny, “Bodak Yellow” producer J. White and several other individuals won big by selecting a 50-year-old sample to catapult “I Like It” to the top of the Billboard 100 this summer.

Given the extensive time gap, there was potential for a serious generational divide with Pete Rodriguez, the Bronx-born Puerto Rican bandleader whose 1967 hit “I Like It Like That” has helped today’s kids go crazy in the clubs.

The 86-year-old artist heard about Cardi’s creation through his grandchildren via text message.

Like Rodriguez, Cardi was also born in the Bronx and champions her Latin heritage, which was good enough for the boogaloo artist.

The new school rules have proved to be a vantage point for Rodriguez’s version, which was written by Tony Pabon and Manny Rodriguez.

It enjoyed a 2,520 percent boost in streams as a direct result to Cardi B’s success.

As of press time, Cardi B’s “I Like It” currently sits at No. 2 behind Drake’s viral hit “In My Feelings.” Not for nothing, she also shares the No. 3 spot thanks to her feature on Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You.”.
