Cardi B has steadily been on a rise, releasing song after song and collaborations after collaborations, and now she is getting ready to drop a whole new album.
The young rapper may be new to the game, but she is certainly not slow to it.
She said she intends to release the follow up to last year’s multi-platinum selling ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ this year, and dropped a hint about who could feature on it.
The rapper spoke to Variety while on the red carpet at the 2019 Spark Party in West Hollywood, where she said although she wasn’t sure when exactly she’d be releasing new music, she’s hoping it’ll be before 2020.
“I’m starting to prepare myself now because I’m really trying to put out an album for this year,” she said.
The rapper also discussed the pressure she feels to follow up the colossal success of her debut album last year. “My last album, ‘Invasion of Privacy’, it just went three times platinum, so now it’s just like, ”aw snap. It’s big pressure on me,” she said. “It’s like ‘aw snap, what the hell am I going to come up with?’”
Though she was tight-lipped about who will be featuring on the record, Cardi did hint that she might be working with some relative unknowns.
“There’s two boys that I met with, well two guys, two men, they’re not big artists. They’re actually…they aren’t really well-known, but they’re amazing artists and I really want to put them on my album.
“Y’all will find out in October who they are,” she said. “I’m not saying that my album is out in October, but you will see why.”
