Cardi B Announces October Album Release; Meets Beyonce

Cardi B concluded her Made in America set Saturday by announcing that she will release her debut album in October.

"Thank you everybody, it was fun," she said. "Let me remind y'all, I'm dropping my album [in] October. Bye."

The Bronx rapper and social media personality released two mixtapes—Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 and Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2—before finding enormous success with her summer single "Bodak Yellow," which has eclipsed 100 million plays on YouTube, cracked the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 and is, according to an unspecified source, currently the #1 most-streamed song in the United States.

Shortly after performing at Made in America, Cardi had the honor of meeting Beyonce. In a Snapchat video circulated by a fan page, she appeared equally excited to meet Beyonce's mother, Tina Lawson. 

Cardi jetted down from Philly to Atlanta after Made in America to participate in LudaDay, a weekend-long celebration of Ludacris, who is about to turn 40 years old. Today, Cardi will participate in a celebrity basketball game in Atlanta alongside Ludacris, Mike Will Made It, Rae Sremmurd, Dave East, La La, and more. The game will take place at 12:30 at Morehouse Forbes Atlanta (830 Westview Drive SW). Make sure to get there early so you can witness Cardi B eurostepping past Swae Lee, then posterizing Slim Jxmmi.
