I'm thinking out loud, but when I realized it's been four years since Invasion of Privacy, and I don't think her profile has diminished as much as someone's could when there's a four year gap between albums, the thought occurred to me that maybe she doesn't need an album. As others have said, she's still very viral, and she's had a huge moment with WAP. I don't think the album is over - actually I think it's undergone a resurgence as an artistic form through the pandemic - and I understand as fans wanting a fuller body of work to dive into. But with streaming as a dominant format and social capital measured the way it is, I'm not sure it's the best way forward for her. There are definitely other rappers and popstars I could say the same thing about, it just occurred to me with Cardi.
