Cardi B updates us on her forthcoming full-length project.
Since releasing her hit single "Bodak Yellow," there has been a lot of speculation as to what Cardi B's next move will be musically. There is supposedly a full-length studio effort in the works from her but, insofar as what the sound will be like or if audiences can expect the same level of quality that she demonstrated with that monster hit, details remain scarce. However, the soon-to-be Mrs. Offset took to Twitter yesterday (November 19th) to share an update on that album with her fans, saying that, above all else, she's focused on delivering a quality product.
First off, Cardi touched on what many people forget is the downside to having a popular song, both on the radio and via streaming platforms: the mental angst that comes with trying to live up to those unspoken expectations. "I have a lot of pressure on me," she admitted. "I have songs stashed up. I just don’t think they qualified for my album." While some fans may question what exactly makes the cut in that kind of scenario, it turns out that, depending on the day, Cardi B isn't sure herself. "Sometimes i think is ready sometimes i think it’s not," she continued. "So I’m going to take my time till it’s right."
A member of Cardi Nation turned up with the interesting proposition of creating an exclusive listening party for the album, whenever it does come out, by only making it open to select fans. The rapper was diplomatic, saying: "I was thinking on doing that in December but that’s really hard i got a lot of dope asss fans. Hard to pick."
With all of the pressure that's clearly surrounding her "Bodak Yellow" follow-up, her upcoming marriage to Migos rapper Offset would seem like the least of her worries. However, a TMZ reporter recently asked her about those nuptials and, more specifically, who's wearing the pants when it comes to wedding planning. The answer? They both are in equal measure. Check out her full response to that question here.
