Cardi B made her debut at Coachella on Sunday evening, just one week after dropping her already gold-certified album Invasion of Privacy and debuting her baby bump on Saturday Night Live.

The Bronx-born rapper made it clear that she doesn’t plan to let her pregnancy slow her down onstage during her set—the stage production alone reportedly cost $300,000—and delivered a seamless, star-studded performance that showed off her twerking skills.

Fans took note and many made jokes on Twitter while talking about how impressive Cardi’s performance was.

Aside from her dancing skills, footage from Coachella shows that Cardi made plenty of jokes about her pregnancy throughout the evening, as well.

“I’m running out of breath,” Cardi joked, right before bringing G-Eazy onstage. “You know my pregnant ass. I need some friends to help me out. Give it up for my friend G-Eazy.”

And after she and YG performed “She Bad,” Cardi said, “And that’s how I got pregnant, y’all. Just like that.”

Aside from G-Eazy and YG, Cardi also brought out Kehlani, Chance the Rapper, and 21 Savage—all were collaborators on her new album.
