Will Cardi B Release a New Album Next Year?


Cardi B is teasing that her new album will be released as soon as next year!

The rapper recently became a mother-of-two, but she is saying that it hasn’t stopped her from creating new music. Recently, she confirmed the follow-up to 2018’s Invasion of Privacy will be out next year.

Cardi Revealed the News on Instagram Live

Cardi told fans on Instagram live: “It’s been a lot trying to balance out my new life. I have a lot of jobs now. I’m in a lot of positions that require a lot of my time, and on top of that, I gotta put out this album next year. Not only do I got to put out an album, but I gotta record a movie: I’ve got to do so much sh*t, y’all.”

Cardi also explained how she stopped working on her hotly-anticipated second studio effort, due to the COVID-19 pandemic making her feel “discouraged” and not being able to properly promote or tour it. “I feel like, at this point, it’s like a timeline that I created,” she explained. “Because last year I was like: ‘I gotta put out my album this year.’ But, then I just stopped working on my album out of nowhere because I feel like the whole COVID thing discouraged me to put out my album. Because I want to put out an album, and I want to tour.”

She continued, “I don’t feel like if I do like, an album promo run and everything, like, there are no feelings to it, me doing interviews with people through a computer. I want to meet up with people. I want to have a conversation. It’s a better vibe.”

She Wants an Album Release Party

The Grammy-winner also plans to host a series of album releases parties, which she couldn’t do with the coronavirus restrictions. “I love album release parties,” she said. “Would love an album release party in New York. I could have one in Atlanta, but I want one also at home. And I want to see people. I shouldn’t fly out 50 of my friends just so they could be there in Atlanta and then somebody might catch COVID. No. So, it’s just something that I stopped, but then now that I keep putting out my singles, I keep saying like: ‘Damn. I have no choice but to put out my album this year.’”
