A Pause on Collaborations 

Cardi B, a celebrated host at the 2021 American Music Awards, has made waves in the music industry with her unique style and audacious persona. However, she is currently focused on the creation of her next solo record, promising her fans a musical treat. 

“Right now I’m working on the cover art and ideas for the next record because it’s definitely coming up.” 

The Wait for the Sophomore Album

Cardi B’s much-anticipated sophomore album has been a topic of discussion among her fans. The rapper addressed these concerns, assuring her listeners that the album is on its way. 

“Everyone always tells me I should put the record out now… but I always let them know I’m not going to wait long after all these singles. So stay tuned because it’s coming out very soon.” 

A Look into the Past: Invasion of Privacy 

Five years have passed since the release of Cardi B’s debut album, Invasion of Privacy. The album, released in April 2018, skyrocketed Cardi B to fame, earning her the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. Several hit singles emerged from this album, leading it to be certified four-times platinum by the RIAA. 

The Role of Mental Health 

Cardi B has been candid about her struggles with mental health, particularly anxiety, and its impact on her music career. She acknowledged the strain of managing her career while being a mother. 

“I’m just a mom and I do have anxiety…I’ve been having a lot of anxiety, because I know right after I drop my album, I have to go out on tour and I have bad separation anxiety from my kids.” 

A Self-Critical Artist 

Cardi B also confessed to being a stringent critic of her own music. She shared her struggle with finding satisfaction in her songs, despite having a vast collection. 

“When it comes to music and everything, I just be feeling like I don’t be liking anything. I feel like I got so many songs and I don’t like anything. I feel like nothing is good enough.” 

Music: A Job That Gives Anxiety 

Cardi B’s wealth has allowed her the privilege of releasing music at her own pace. However, she elaborated on the anxiety that producing music now gives her. 

“Making music to me has become like a job that gives me anxiety because everybody just critiques everything that I do.” 

Breaking Free 

Despite these challenges, Cardi B is determined to continue her musical journey. She spoke about the importance of letting go of the anxiety and focusing on her music. 

“I just be freezing myself, but I have to let that go. I have to release more music — I have to go out there.” 

Stay Tuned 

For all her fans eagerly awaiting her next release, Cardi B’s message is clear: stay tuned. The upcoming solo project is on its way, and it promises to be worth the wait.
