Cardi B album delay has been attributed to the unending negotiations with her record label Atlantic Records.
Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, populaly known as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and actress Born in Manhattan and raised in The Bronx, New York City.
Cardi B has been one of the most popular female rappers who is positioning herself as a force to reckon with. Her fans have been waiting to see her release an album since she dropped INVASION OF PRIVACY in 2018.
Cardi B has been using social media to remain relevant in the conversation following her popular visit in Africa especially Nigeria and Ghana, where she was given a new name ”Chioma B”. Her presence on social media has been highly controversial especially her political view on American politics.
Reports have it that the Grammy winner and a mother may be delaying her new album because of her ongoing negotiation with Atlantic Records.
The details of the delay have not been released, but reports suggest there may be more to discuss than just finances before Cardi and her label can give the go-ahead for the release of her sophomore project.
Cardi B’s last single, “Press,” was released in May of 2019 along with a provocative and cinematic music video. Since then, she has regularly teased fans with the promise of her follow-up to Invasion of Privacy, but also made it clear that she is taking her time to make sure the album is perfect before its release.
“I can never put a date on it ‘cause when you feel that you got those songs, that’s when it’s gonna come out,” she explained to Baller Alert during an interview earlier this year. “I cannot put a date on my ears. When I feel like I have it, that’s when.”
The Bronx native also broke the news to fans in March that the release of her latest Wheezy-produced track would be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Cardi B has become one of the most vocal celebrities about the global health crisis, regularly taking to social media to criticize the government’s handling of the situation and question the information being released to the public.
But the fans want what they want, the music,let’s hope that Cardi and her label agree quickly so that she can focus on delivering hits that help us all get through these dark times.
