Cardi B fans are feverishly anticipating the femcee’s sophomore album and have been for a while.
And it’s easy to digest why.
The rapper blazed a trail with chart-topper ‘Bodak Yellow’ and its multi-Platinum parent album ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ – which was released back in 2018.
She’s also racked up GRAMMYs and a growing list of Billboard hits.
Suffice to say, she’s more than whet appetites for her second studio effort. Which begs the question: where is it?
Well, a new report appears to shine light on the behind the scenes happenings that may explain the elongated wait.
Join us after the jump…
According to Hits Daily Double (citing sources close to the matter), contract renegotiations are at the center of the lengthy gap between ‘Privacy’ and its follow-up – a set Cardi has been teasing in snippet form for several months. The report relayed:
[Cardi has] dropped a number of tracks and features in the last year or so, but it’s been a long while since her 2018 debut album (3.3m+ RTD). Still, she’s a monster brand; insiders say a protracted renegotiation of her record deal has held up the release of her next full-length. What’s taking so long to get that deal done? Is something more than money involved?
Additional particulars were not shared. Although, given the enormity and relative speed of her success, it’s safe to assume there are plenty of t’s to cross and i’s to dot.
In any case, here’s hoping we’re fed with new music soon!
Because, say what one will about Belcalis, there’s no denying that her heat streak helped melt the monotony of the female rap scene and cleared the way for many of the ladies slaying presently. Particularly as relates to their ability to nab wins at the same time as each other. So who better to benefit from that than Cardi?!
We’re buzzed for her return. Are you?
