Cardi B is set to return with her first single of 2022 titled “Hot Shit” releasing on Friday (July 1). The track is a star-studded affair as the Bronx native will tango with Kanye West and Lil Durk over Tay Keith production.

However, unlike most of her singles, “Hot Shit” won’t come with a music video and Cardi took to Instagram Live on Monday evening (June 27) to detail how the record differs from a lot of her previous raunchy music and isn’t something made to thrive on TikTok.

“It’s something that I feel like y’all haven’t heard from me before,” she said, “I feel like people is expecting a lot of slutness and blah blah blah. Y’all keep talking I keep making TikTok records and this is definitely not that. It’s a fun great record. It’s masculine [and] it’s great for the clubs. It’s great for the bitches.”

She also voiced her frustrations with the song’s rollout to the point she almost canceled the release.

“I will not be releasing a music video with this song,” Cardi added. “I just don’t feel like doing too much this time around. I’m just exhausted with everybody [and] I’m so tired of people not doing their fucking job correctly.”

The 29-year-old mother of two also explained how the record differs from a lot of her previous raunchy music and isn’t something made to thrive on TikTok.

“It’s something that I feel like y’all haven’t heard from me before,” she continued. “I feel like people is expecting a lot of slutness and blah blah blah. Y’all keep talking I keep making TikTok records and this is definitely not that. It’s a fun great record. It’s masculine [and] it’s great for the clubs. It’s great for the bitches.”

Lil Durk is giving the nod to Cardi for having the “hardest” verse on the track.

“You got the hardest verse we can all agree,” he tweeted.

During his January interview with Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee, Kanye revealed he recently came from laying his verse on what we can assume to be “Hot Shit.” Ye also allegedly referred to Cardi as one of his heroes because of her outspoken nature, which he can certainly relate to.

“You said to Cardi, ‘You’re my hero because you can say whatever you want and not be judged,’” Lee recalled Kanye telling the “Bodak Yellow” rhymer at Kris Jenner’s house.

“I was finishing that verse for your girl,” Kanye said in reference to Cardi. “I always believed in her since she was on the show, period.”

Look for “Hot Shit” to arrive on July 1.
