It's safe to say that COVID-19 has forever changed the social landscape of the United States — and the world — as we know it. However, there are a few bright spots that have come out of the global pandemic, and one such bright spot is Cardi B's Coronavirus song. 

But it's not quite the music that you think! You see, a few days ago, Cardi B took to her Instagram to release a video about Coronavirus — and, in true Cardi B fashion, she riddled it with her trademark bon mots and lots of profanity, thus providing some much-needed levity to this grave situation. 

And, thanks to an intrepid DJ, that video about Coronavirus not only got a dance remix, but has since gone — wait for it — viral.
