Cardi B Says She is Releasing a New Album This Year
Cardi B is coming off of a record-breaking 2018, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to slow down and take a breather. On Tuesday (Jan. 1), the rapper went live on Instagram and confirmed that she plans on putting out a new album this year. “Of course it’s going to be an album in 2019,” she said, responding to a fan asking about the status of the new record.
Cardi also said she wants to release the album around the same time she released Invasion of Privacy last year –which would mean April– but she added that she’s not sure that’ll be feasible due to her schedule. Cardi B is looking to drop another project this year. While on Instagram Live on Tuesday night, the Grammy-nominated musician shared that she is planning to release an album in 2019, Billboard notes.
Although Cardi didn’t give any exact dates or a title, she did say that she hopes to be able to release the body of work in April, which is around the same date that she released her debut album Invasion of Privacy.
“Hopefully I can get my album done around the same time that Invasion of Privacy came out,” Cardi said. “I don’t know how possible that’s going to be because I feel like I’m gonna be extremely, extremely busy.”
Last year, Cardi went #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart twice, and earned five Grammy nominations. She will also reportedly drop a deluxe version of Invasion of Privacy sometime this year.
