Cardi B’s highly anticipated second album is set to make its debut in 2024, marking the end of a prolonged wait for eager fans who have endured years of anticipation and the release of several standalone singles. In November 2023, the rapper dropped “Bongos,” offering a glimpse into what her upcoming musical project might entail.
On January 1, videos surfaced of the “I Like It” sensation at a Miami club, where she tantalizingly teased an unreleased track. While it’s not officially confirmed to be part of her next album, the song featured Cardi addressing her critics and rapping about various indulgences.
A sequel to 2018’s “Invasion of Privacy” has been in the works for an extended period. Cardi treated fans to “Up” in 2021 and “Hot S**t” with Lil Durk and Kanye West the following year. The former soared to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the latter secured the 13th spot.
During an interview with Ebro Darden last year, Cardi shared her thoughts on the album’s release, stating, “I should already start talking about the album because I’m going to be putting it out very soon. It’s like I have to watch it because I always feel like somebody watching me — it’s going to come out when it’s going to come out.” Get ready for Cardi B’s next musical chapter in 2024!
During her appearance at “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve” in Vice City on December 31, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, Cardi B delivered a standout performance alongside a star-studded lineup including LL Cool J, Post Malone, Coco Jones, Ludacris, Doechii, and Megan Thee Stallion, who graced Times Square with her presence.
In an update shared on her Instagram Story, Cardi candidly shared the challenges she faced in the lead-up to her performance at Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Despite acknowledging the festive New Year’s atmosphere, she emphasized the intensity of her preparation, saying, “Bro, I’ve been fighting for three days, and I have a huge performance later. Huge performance. Like, alright, I get that it’s New Year’s, but I have this huge performance, and I’m fighting, fighting.” The behind-the-scenes glimpse added a personal touch to Cardi’s dedication and commitment to delivering a stellar show for her fans.
