Ever since the release of her first album Invasion of Privacy, fans have been insatiable as they await new Cardi B music. The question continues to plague her: when is the new album dropping? Following a handful of extremely handful singles and the album, Cardi’s just about ready to unleash her sophomore effort on to her fans, but she’s making sure it is on her time. However, she tweeted out somewhat of a teaser for her upcoming album and some of her fans are… grossed out.
Cardi B’s latest single boasts lyrics that say “If it’s up, then it’s stuck.” Judging by her career, nothing could be further from the truth. Her debut album garnered much critical acclaim from fans and critics alike while racking up various award nominations and wins. She’s not immune to number-ones either, as many of her singles have hit the top spot on the Billboard charts, religiously.
Last year summer saw Cardi B take control of the airwaves with the first single of her sophomore album, WAP. The Megan Thee Stallion-assisted song quickly smashed the charts along with its racy visual and all of the controversy surrounding it. WAP also made Cardi B a history-making female rap artist as she is the only female rapper to have number ones on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in two separate decades.
Cardi also saw much more history made within her career when last year it was announced that her debut single on a major label, Bodak Yellow, is now certified RIAA Diamond, meaning more than 10 million copies sold. Cardi B is currently the only female rapper to hold a Diamond certification. Her latest single, Up, has also reached the number one spot on the chart overall.
With the anticipation consistently mounting for her project, Cardi has expressed that she no doubt has begun to feel the pressure increase. During a recent Instagram Live session, the rapper said “I have so much pressure. I’m working on a lot of s**t to please people,” she said. “I wanna please my fans, because y’all been asking for something from me for a very long time that I can’t say, and I’m doing it for ya.”
Following her performance at the Grammy Awards, Cardi promised her fans on Twitter that she would be going “full album mode.”

“I was hungry around this time. Perfecting & writing my s**t,” she said. “Im going to complete some business do things for ‘UP’ then I’m out !but please let’s stay on topic & not ask me about things when ya know I don’t like talkin bout my moves.”
That probably may be the answer to why the rapper shared a rather irreverent response to a fan when asked for a hint on her upcoming album’s cover. The image brought quite the reactions from her fans when they copped a gander at her post.
