Cardi B



Honestly.. hearing her speak like this I'm kind of glad she's taking it at her own pace. The fact she's putting stuff like taking her daughter to gymnastics class over pushing through an album/tour cycle is real queen behaviour, but her anxiety sounds like it's becoming debilitating in terms of making music.

This is pretty much confirmation it's not in any sort of shape to be released and that we won't be getting it any time soon.
 


I can only imagine the difficulties involved with juggling the kind of career a huge music act has with having children. With that said, I think it's clear, and has been for some time, that her biggest hangup is that anxiety related to the reception of her music. She needs to realize that she's far surpassed any "one-hit wonder" stage. She's a multiplatinum, Grammy-award winning artist. She's had huge success outside of just her debut single/album. I hope she can work with a therapist to untangle some of that anxiety because she has so much more to give.
 
I don't know if I buy "I know after I drop my album I'll have to tour". Who's gonna tell Cardi B she has to tour?

Maybe the anxiety is actually around feeling like she's not creatively fired up and is expected to make an album just because it's been a while. Especially for a rap artist if you have nothing to get off your chest, what are you gonna do? It's not like she's Selena Gomez and she can just sing anything she's given. If she's not in that headspace now, if she has nothing to say...

"I got so much fuckin' money saved up" is telling. And "making music to me has become like a job." She's not hungry for it anymore. I'd expect another few years' wait with odd singles here and there.
 
I do believe the album is coming next year, she very recently signed up to a new management deal & she has been talking about a tour like it’s already pencilled in. Her label must be getting to a point where they’re giving her an ultimatum.
 
Wasn't she trying to maneuver around her 360 deal awhile ago? I'm sure she has some sort of touring deal.
 
I know that like you never know what’s going on behind the scenes, but having 2 number 1 singles, with the first being a literal pop culture moment, and not capitalizing on that with a body of work is just crazy to me.

But if you’re not feeling it, you’re not feeling it. I totally get it.

This has endured exceptionally well on Apple Music, despite not doing much on Spotify. It's just starting to lose steam on radio. She really should get her own single out soon. But I'm guessing they thought the Despecha remix would do.... something (it did nothing dd).

 
I do understand the pressure's on her. If I were in her shoes, I'd just drop what I have as a surprise album release and tour when she's up to do it in some years.
