Composition[edit]

An uplifting, gospel-influenced song, "Best Life" lyrics include themes of the power of positive thinking,[3][4] highlights several emotions experienced by young adults,[5] and discusses the glamour of extreme wealth.[6] As described by a The Guardian editor, the song's laid-back beat "invites self-reflection," as Cardi raps about her triumph over adversity.[7] In one of her lines, she references Tupac's 1999 collection of poetry The Rose That Grew from Concrete.[8]

Live performances[edit]

Chance the Rapper joined Cardi B on stage to perform "Best Life" during her set at the 2018 Coachella Music Festival.[9]
