Cardi B has promised her fans that she’ll be dropping some new music before the year is up, and promised that she’d be “talking her sh*t” on the new track.
In a Twitter Space that went live on Monday (November 13), the “Bodak Yellow” rapper teased the new track to her excited fans.
“But I was thinking about, you know, being really quiet, being really private,” she said. “But I don’t know. Maybe I should just put a lil’ something something out before the year ends.”
She continued: “It depends, though, because…hmm. Would y’all mind if I just do, like, a video? […] I don’t really have nothing planned for, like, right now. I don’t know. I’ll think about it by the end of the day. I don’t know. I just feel like I gotta talk my shit a little bit. You know what I’m saying?”
This isn’t the first time that Cardi B has teased new music, though this is the first time she’s teased that the music would be dropping before the new year.
Back in September, the Bronx native stopped by Ebro in the Morning, where she was pressed about details surrounding her long-awaited sophomore album, and which she jokingly expressed she’d been hesitant to disclose as she “always feel like somebody watching me.”
“You know what? I was indecisive but I was like, you know what? I should already start talking about the album because I’m going to be putting it out very soon,” she began. “But it’s like I have to watch it because I always feel like somebody watching me — it’s going to come out when it’s going to come out.”
When asked whether the disc would drop before the close of the year, prior to Christmas, the “Drip” rapper continued to play coy revealing: “I can say that; it’s not going to come out this year.”
Later, Ebro attempted to gauge whether rumors of yet another Taylor Swift album release this fall influenced Cardi’s decision to promote her upcoming project.
“I wasn’t even thinking like that — my first album and everything — I just like, for this album, I’m just holding it because I feel like I’m missing a couple of things,” she admitted.
“Then on top of that, everything just has to be like perfect from everything because I feel like people are expecting so much,” she continued, divulging that she missed out on many of the things she wanted to do — such as videos and touring — following the release of her freshman album, Invasion of Privacy, as she was “super duper pregnant” at the time.
In a separate interview with DJ Whoo Kid, Cardi revealed that while she has a date and title in mind she’s “keeping it under wraps.”
“I’m kinda still working but I have a date in mind,” she began. Before addressing whether Beyonce previously sending her flowers on her birthday was any indication she’d be on the album.
“It’s not coming out on my birthday. Matter fact, I don’t want nothing coming out in the month of October. October is my month. I don’t want no shit related to work in October, okay,” she concluded.
