Cardi B Shares Update On Sophomore Album
Cardi B has given an update on her upcoming sophomore album. The Bronx native’s follow-up to her Grammy-winning debut Invasion of Privacy has been highly anticipated by her fans, the “Bardi Gang.” In the rapper’s latest interview with Vogue México y Latinoamérica, she revealed that she is gearing up for the project.
“I’m not going to release any more collaborations, I’m going to put out my next solo single,” she shared. “Right now, I’m working on the cover art and ideas for the next record because it’s definitely coming up.”
The rapper added that the album is “coming soon” and that she is looking to continue to grow outside of music as well and tap into “fashion, branding, and the world of cinema.” Cardi has previously worked with FashionNova, Steve Madden, and Reebok. On her red carpets, she has been seen wearing designers including as Thierry Mugler.
“Mr. Mugler was one of the FIRST designers to take a major chance on me,” Cardi wrote in a tribute to Mugler who died last year. “allowing me to wear one of his ICONIC archive pieces for my Grammy red carpet look in 2019.”
As for acting, Cardi was in 2019’s Oscar-nominated Hustlers which starred Jennifer Lopez and the ninth Fast and Furious film. She’s also done some voice acting in Baby Shark’s Big Movie!
This is not the first time Cardi has teased her upcoming album. She previously has discussed why the album has taken so long to come out.
“When it comes to music and everything, I just be feeling like I don’t be liking anything,” she said back in December on Instagram Live. “I feel like I got so many songs and I don’t like anything. I feel like nothing is good enough… And I got so much money saved up I just be like, ‘Yeah, whatever the f—.'”
She added that the pressure from everyone commenting on what she does also plays a role although she has decided to block it out and keep going.
“I used to love making music, but now, making music to me has become like a job that gives me anxiety,” Cardi B says in the video. “Everybody just critiques everything that I do, that it’s just like…you know, sometimes you just don’t want to do something that may give you that much anxiety. So I just be like, “Uh!” — freezing myself but I have to let that go. I have to release more music — I have to go out there.”
