Although it’s been a while since her last album, Cardi B continues to reign as one of the most popular and beloved rappers working today. Her business partner Brooklyn Johnny, who was instrumental in getting her to Atlantic Records, posted a picture of Cardi B in the studio on Instagram. Moreover, the comment section and other parts of social media lit up with excitement. Even if we’re all excited for his McDonald’s Super Bowl commercial with Offset, some new music would be huge.
“YOU ARE READY”: wrote Johnny in his Instagram post. In it, Cardi is sitting nearby with a mic, no matter how much she takes the verse or is about to jump. “Don’t tease us with this kind of ad unless it’s an album,” wrote one user.
While the “Hot S**t” rapper’s career has been monumental, it’s sad to see that his success often comes with some baggage. He was recently pulled by fans on social media after he complained about rising grocery prices, which some felt was out of touch. However, the inherent echo chamber of social media cannot dampen the excitement of the music.
Furthermore, fans have been waiting a long, long time for a new Cardi. “I mean yeah, it’s been 5 years,” one fan wrote, while another wrote, “Stop playing with us Johnny!” Also, when new material is teased, you always have wavering fans who have played it before. “If it’s another bluff, we will go to the streets to protest.” another commenter posted.
Additionally, some new potential promo material and interviews may also point to her new release coming soon. NORE recently invited him to present Drink Champs after they had a “great conversation”. In that meeting, perhaps we’ll learn more about his process, the development of this next step, and what it feels like to be away for so long.
Still, are you excited for new music coming soon (hopefully) from Cardi B? Even if you haven’t heard from him in a while, let us know in the comments below.
