When fans asked how soon, she responded, “Very. I don’t want to give too much information because my fans be watching but also the haters too.”
The song has been a long time coming and was reportedly delayed due to a protracted renegotiation with her label Atlantic Records, but it appears that she has reached a resolution.
Cardi has not released any solo music since “Press” in May 2019, but she has teased the long-awaited follow-up to her 2018 debut Invasion of Privacy.
Earlier this year, she shared snippets of new music, including one Wheezy-produced track that fans have been calling “Respect.” In March, she said that her single was being put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking with Vogue last year, she opened up about the pressure surrounding the highly-anticipated project. “So it’s scary because it’s like, now you got to top your first album, and then it’s like, damn. I wonder if people are gonna relate to the new things, to the new life, to the new shit that I gotta talk about now,” she told the magazine.
The album follows Invasion of Privacy, which won a Grammy for Best Rap Album and became the longest-charting debut album from a female rapper in Billboard history.
