Cardi B continues to use her voice, platform and influence and now has teamed up with Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders for an interview him for a 2020 presidential campaign video meant to appeal to young voters.

According to CNN, Sanders said he and Cardi B spoke about a range of issues, including canceling student debt, climate change and raising the minimum wage. The video — filmed at the TEN Nail Bar, a local nail salon owned by two black women — is the first collaboration between the duo.

“We (are) working on a way to involve more young people in the political process,”  Sanders said in an interview as he arrived for the shoot. “The future of America depends on young people. They are voting in large numbers, but not large enough numbers.”

Cardi also took to Instagram to announce the initiative which she is leading and to thank Bernie for sitting with her to open the dialogue and help engage young voters.

Not me, US. Thank you Senator Bernie Sanders for sitting with me and sharing your plans on how you will change this country. A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you had the opportunity to have a question answered by a democratic candidate what would it be ? I got a lot of submission and selected the most popular questions to get answered. Stay tuned to see how he will fight for economic, racial, and social justice for all. Together, let’s build a movement of young people to transform this country.LETS LEARN OUR CANDIDATES!

The sit down comes weeks after Cardi tweeted regarding Bernie in early July and how she’s been researching his history and track record so that she could be more informed on the candidates.

“She is really smart. And she is deeply concerned about what’s happening in this country,” Sanders said during an appearance on Kimmel’s show. “She wants to make sure we improve life for working people in this country, and I’m delighted that she is a supporter.”

Kudos to Cardi for using her platform to influence change!
