Artist Sampled In Cardi B's 'I Like It' Found Out About The Song Through His Grandkids

If you can't stop singing the chorus to Cardi B's I Like It, you've got Pete Rodriguez to thank.

Rodriguez is the man behind the original 1967 song I Like It Like That... and it turns out he had no idea Cardi B had sampled his song!

According to Entertainment Weekly, Rodriguez only found out the song was used in Cardi B's track when his kids and grandkids called and texted him about it. 

Rodriguez said he didn't know who Cardi B was, but the grandkids are fans and were excited about it. 

He said he watched some of her music videos, and I Like It is clearly his favourite!
