Cardi B’s New Album Means She Has No Plans Of Slowing Down

We’re just  a few days into the new year and already 2019 is full of wonderful news. From Ricky Martin’s new baby girl to the swearing-in of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other history-making women into the 116h Congress to a Texas marching band’s tribute to Selena, 2019 is off to a good start. Now we can add one more piece of news to the mix: Cardi B has just revealed that she is planning to release a new album in 2019.

In a video posted to her Instagram Live, Cardi B said, “of course it’s gonna be an album in 2019.”

The rapper broke the exciting news while chatting with her 38.8 million followers on New Year’s Day on Instagram. Although there was speculation for a while that she would soon release the follow-up to her debut, some believed that her music would be overshadowed by the current troubles between her and estranged husband, Migos’ Offset. However, the “Be Careful” singer isn’t letting personal troubles stop her career ambitions.

“Hopefully, I could get my album done around the same time that “Invasion of Privacy” came out, but I don’t know how possible that’s gonna be because I feel like I’m going to be extremely, extremely busy,” she said in the Instagram Live video.

Cardi B’s debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, came out on April 6, 2018. If her promised timeline holds up, this means that we can expect her second album around April 2019.

After its release, “Invasion of Privacy” quickly went multiplatinum and became one of the year’s most celebrated albums. It was named the #1 album of 2018 by Rolling Stone and TIME magazines, as well as made many Top 10 lists. The album was nominated for “Album of the Year” at the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, 2018 BreakTudo Awards, and the 2018 People’s Choice Awards. She is also nominated for an “Album of the Year” and “Best Rap Album” nomination at the 61st Grammy Awards. Plus a “Record of the Year” nomination for her song “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny & J Balvin, and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” nominated for Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” featuring Cardi B.

Even President Barack Obama listed Cardi B’s “I Like It” as one of his favorite songs of 2018.

Currently, Cardi B is keeping busy touring the world so nobody can be sure about whether her April 2019 deadline will actually happen. Her tabloid-filled personal life may also be at fault if the album takes longer to make. Despite revealing that her and husband Offset “grew out of love” on December 4th, the Migos’ member tried to win her back in a very public way that went very, very wrong, according to ET Online. Yet a reunion may still be in the works after the couple once again sparked rumors that their marriage was on the mend after the two were spotted together in Puerto Rico. Still, none of this is keeping the hardest working woman in music from continuing to work it.

Cardi B most recently released the official music video for her hit, “Money,” which has all of us on Twitter fangirling hard.

Meanwhile, fans are unsurprisingly freaking out about the new video’s release while also looking forward to Cardi B’s next album.

When news of her new album first broke on Twitter, some fans simply screamed “YES!”

That’s five extremely well-deserved exclamation points. Honestly, isn’t that how we all feel right now as we hear this news?

While other fans just said how cool she is. Cause, well, she truly is.

We’re not sure if it was her bright red hair or the fact that she’s doing an Instagram Live or just the way that she is announcing her upcoming album, but we think she is cool too.

And some just talked about how much they’re looking forward to her new album.

Can we add our own “like” to this tweet? Of course, as we look ahead to the new album coming sometime in 2019, we must not forget that Cardi B has also recently blessed us with the music video for “Money”… and it is a song that we can all obsess over until the new album drops.

Meanwhile, some fans are just declaring “Money” their 2019 anthem.

If you wanted a powerful anthem for 2019, then you’ve got it. Cardi B is certainly the lady to show us how to get more money this year.

And their 2019 mood.

Yes, we’re pretty much having ALL of the feelings for “Money” too.

Or, even better, their 2019 theme.

Alexa, don’t stop playing.

Let’s just hope that Cardi B’s timeline holds up and we don’t have to wait for much longer than April 2019 for her new album. In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying the “Money” music video and watching her win all the Grammys.

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.

In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.
