Cardi B Promises That New Album Is Coming Soon On Instagram Live

Since her last album Invasion of Privacy dropped five years ago, Cardi B has been hard at work on her next endeavor. However, she balanced that out between guest features, serving looks, and her usual pop culture contributions. As such, fans patiently waited for months and months and years for her next full-length project, and it looks like it might be around the corner. Moreover, the rapper recently held an Instagram Live session talking to fans earnestly and, in typical Cardi fashion, comically. During her remarks, she revealed a single on the way and said that "this album is coming."

Unfortunately for Cardi B, she revealed that anxiety and just how busy she's been for the last few years really cut into her next LP. "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,” the 30-year-old remarked. “When it comes to music and everything, I just be feeling like I don’t be liking anything,” she said. “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**k.’"

Cardi B's Next Album "Is Coming"

Furthermore, that nervousness even extends to her fashion sense... well, kind of. "Every single time that I got to the Met, it’s fun of course,” Cardi B revealed in a behind-the-scenes video from the Met Gala. “After my first time going to the Met, I always get anxiety. And the anxieties just grow and grow and grow. Maybe because my looks are so spectacular that people just expect every year to be more amazing than the last. And it’s so hard because imagine competing with myself. That is sickening."

Meanwhile, it's not like the "Get Up 10" MC kept fans starving during this time. Through singles like "WAP," "Hot S**t," and "Up," fans still enjoyed much of her recent material. While nothing's set in stone yet, hopefully the Bronx star isn't just playing with fans' emotions. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Cardi B.
