“I look like money, you could put my face on a dollar,” Cardi B raps on “Bongos” featuring Megan Thee Stallion. The line rings true as she always serves a look on a red carpet or a fashion week event. While Cardi’s rap career has been a wild ride, her fashion statements mimic that at every turn as well.
Cardi’s Next “Money Move”
It’s no secret that Cardi fans want her sophomore album. Her debut, Invasion of Privacy, took her from an internet personality and mixtape rapper to a history-making artist. Invasion of Privacy dropped back in 2018 and has songs such as “Money,” “Drip,” “I Like It” and her breakout hit”Bodak Yellow.” She won the Best Rap Album award at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. She became the first female rapper to win the award as a solo artist.
Cardi recently dropped “Bongos” featuring Megan Thee Stallion which was her first song of 2023 as a lead artist. The song also was Megan’s first song of the year. Previously, the rapper jumped on remixes such as Latto’s “Put It On Da Floor Again” and FendiDa Rappa’s “Point Me 2” this year.
It’s been five years since the Invasion of Privacy so when asked what is the delay, the rapper got vulnerable on Instagram Live last year when answering the question.
“I’m just a mom and I do have anxiety,” she said. “I’ve been having a lot of anxiety, because I know right after I drop my album, I have to go out on tour and I have bad separation anxiety from my kids.”
In her latest interview with Vogue México y Latinoamérica she said that she’s ready to continue making music.
“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.”
