Fans of the ‘WAP’ hitmaker has been waiting for a new album from the American rapper. Unfortunately, Cardi B plans not to release it soon.
The NY rapper Cardi B hasn’t released an album since her 2018 release ‘Invasion of Privacy’. However, the fans of the rapper have been expecting a new album even though she gets criticized for her hit single ‘WAP’.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, the Castle Lite Unlocks 2020 concert singer has opened up about the reason for delaying the new album and how the public criticism has affected her career.
As the wife of the rapper Offset, Cardi says: “I haven’t been able to eat. I feel like I get criticized a lot, and scrutinized, so it’s just like everything. I always feel like I’ve got to be super, super, super perfect. I’m a Libra, so everybody’s opinion always counts to me.”
Cardi also shared how Drill Chicago music influenced her as singer. “My last song was very sexual, very sexual, so I always want my next songs to be different than the one before,” she explains. “When I started rapping, when I first put music out, like my mixtape…This might sound crazy, but I got really inspired of Drill Chicago music. I was young, and I liked that and everything, so my mixtape was very all about gangster violence. If it’s up, then it’s stuck. That’s where I wanted to take it with this record.”
Cardi B plans to delay the new album
Later in the conversation, it revealed that Cardi B plans not to release a new album very soon. “I really wanted to put out an album last year, but it was like, “I feel like I don’t have the right songs,” the singer continued.
She added, “I have recorded so many songs. I think I’ve got like 50 songs recorded, and I’m just still not satisfied. If I’m not satisfied, I’m just not satisfied, but I really want to put out an album this year. I feel like I have no choice now. Now, I feel like I exceeded my limit of holding. I just need to stop with the fear.”
The rapper has also started doubting herself, feels not enough. She said: “I don’t even be knowing what should be like the base of my album sometimes. — Should most of my songs be freaky songs? Most of my songs should be about tricking?” I’ve got my sensitive songs and stuff, and it’s just like, ‘Are they enough? Are they explaining my feelings enough?’ My intro is just like… I’ve got like… Three potential intros, and it’s just like, are “They good enough? Are they explaining everything that I want to explain?'”
The 28 old rapper also got criticized for her political views, after sharing thoughts against former president Donald Trump in 2020. With this, a feud between Cardi b and Candace Owens started last year. As an activist of Trump, Candace Owens appeared on Fox News and slammed the rapper for her political view.
