Cardi B: “I Was ‘Under A Lot Of Pressure’ To Deliver Another Hit”

Published: Thursday 1st Oct 2020 by TGJ Team

After seeing huge success with the singles such as ‘Bodak Yellow,’ ‘I Like It,’ and ‘Girls Like You,’ Cardi B has revealed she felt “a lot of pressure” to deliver another hit.

More details below…

Sitting down with SiriusXM, the ‘WAP’ rapper discussed the anxiety she faced after achieving mammoth wins from her debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy.‘ An LP which spawned two #1 hits for the superstar.
She said:
I just felt like I was under a lot of pressure, like if you don’t have like a super crazy smash, it’s like, ‘Oh you flop, flop, flop.’ The song could be like 2x platinum.
 
‘You’re always under pressure and then I feel like it’s not fair because there are male artists that will go two years without putting a fu**ing song out and they don’t be like, ‘Oh, you’re irrelevant. It’s over for you.’
With singles such as ‘Press‘ and ‘Money‘ not achieving the same success as some of her previous efforts, the rapper revealed to the radio station that the pressure started to “crush” her.
 
She added:
 I didn’t put out songs for nine months and it’s like, ‘Oh, she’s irrelevant. She’s over. She’s a flop. We told you that.’ That type of shit started to get to me, like crush me.”
****
We admire Cardi’s honesty. While it’s great to be on top of the charts, many other artists have echoed the same sentiments as the rapper, from Katy Perry to Lady Gaga.
Though she may have felt the pressure, she most definitely shrugged off the unbelievers with the huge hit ‘WAP‘ with Megan Thee Stallion, which sits at an impressive #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 after spending four weeks at #1.
Kudos to Cardi!

        The fact that she said MONEY BAG wasn’t released as a single because it sounds like Bodak tells me that Cardi will be FARTING out #1 singles like Rihanna used to for YEARS to come

      Coming from a nicki stan lmao. Nicki can only get a #1 if she rides someone else’s wave. None of her solo or lead singles have gone #1. Hell most of her singles over the past years have bombed lmao

    Not having adoration and being called a Queen and the greatest thing to ever have been put on this planet for a mere 9 months must have been so hard for this self-obsessed narcissist.

    Gurl, we understand the feeling

    Camila was under alot of pressure to deliver another monster hit after Havana hit number one.

    But in the end, Camila delivered an even bigger hit with senorita her second number 1 hit. 😂
    The girls are still crying till this day.

    Camila Cabello becomes the first and only female artist to have two songs with over 1.5 BILLION streams on Spotify.
    😌😌😌😌

    • Shayla Queen 👑 October 1, 2020

      The Queen is Iggy Azelea. Fancy is the longest single to sit at #1 by a female Hip-Hop artist.

  9. Pat October 1, 2020

  10. Diabetes UNBOTHERED October 1, 2020

    Something about WAP says ALBUM TRACK to me NOT single yet bish still hit with a WW SMASH and Hit Video. Imagine what her OBVIOUS Singles sound like. 😂😂😂

    Can’t wait to hear I LIKE IT part II and BODAK YELLOW 2. The fact that she said MONEY BAG wasn’t released as a single because it sounds like Bodak tells me that Cardi will be FARTING out sings like Rihanna used to for YEARS to come

    CARDI AINT GOING NOWHERE

    But as remy predicted Nikki is DEAD

    CARDI is NEW QUEEN and Meaghan soon to be giving Cardi both REAL & HEATHY competition just makes Cardi success even more impressive

  11. Diabetes UNBOTHERED October 1, 2020

    The fact that she said MONEY BAG wasn’t released as a single because it sounds like Bodak tells me that Cardi will be FARTING out #1 singles like Rihanna used to for YEARS to come

  14. A Realist October 1, 2020

    awww the poor self-obsessed narcissist. lol Girl! WAP is trash. it only charted as high as it did because of Youtube views (for those of you that dont know that YT views factor your chart placement) Then her label has it on a stimulus package for radio spins. Ask about the pure sales of WAP… then you’ll know what im talking about. Without streams, alot of these artist would be nobodies! They really want GP to think this girl is popping waaaay more than what she is. and thats FACT!
