Cardi B, the renowned rapper, hasn’t released an album for over five years. However, it appears that her second album, following her 2018 debut ‘Invasion Of Privacy’, might be on the horizon. Her recent collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion on the track ‘Bongos’ has proven to be a viral sensation, particularly its dance-centric music video. Fans are eagerly awaiting more music and are intrigued about what her new era will bring.
Cardi B is currently under contract with Atlantic Records, having signed with them in 2017. This was just a few months before she released her life-changing single, ‘Bodak Yellow’. This track was the second solo Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 by a female rap artist, following Lauryn Hill’s ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’, which topped the charts 19 years earlier.
Cardi B achieved another No. 1 with her collaboration with J. Balvin and Bad Bunny on ‘I Like It’, also from ‘Invasion Of Privacy’. In 2020, her viral collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion on ‘WAP’ earned her a third No. 1, and her solo single ‘Up’ became her fourth No. 1 in 2021.
Even though it’s been nearly six years since ‘Invasion Of Privacy’, it seems that Cardi B’s new era is imminent. In an interview on DJ Whoo Kid’s ‘Whoo’s House’ podcast, Cardi B revealed that she’s still working on her second album but has a release date in mind.
With four No. 1 hits and a No. 1 album to her name, it’s clear that she’s in good hands with Atlantic Records. The next rollout is expected to be promising.
Cardi B is an artist under Warner Music. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
