Cardi B’s Sophomore Album Is Not Dropping In 2024

Cardi B fans might have to wait a little longer for her sophomore album. The rapper shared on social media that she will be holding her anticipated release until possibly next year. In screenshots of now-deleted posts on X shared by HipHopDX, the Grammy-winning musician explained her plight.

“Exactly and I tell myself this all the time..and I hate that I fall back and start interacting again and it bites me in the a**…,” detailed the Bronx native after a fan discussed her social media engagement. “Anyway NO album this year I don’t care I’m relaxing this year.. Dropping these features I already committed to and traveling and enjoying my summer.”

So far this year, Cardi B has dropped the singles “Enough (Miami),” and “Like What (Freestyle),” signaling a potential album roll-out. In fact, the “Like What” music video, directed by Offset, warns that “this is just the beginning… stay tuned.” Both tracks follow her 2023 “Bongos” collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.

In August of last year, the “Bodak Yellow” performer shared an update on the progress of her pending album during an interview with Vogue México y Latinoamérica.

“So stay tuned because it will be released very soon,” explained the rapper in a translated copy of the conversation. “I also have plans in the world of cinema. In fact, I have plans to do everything I can: fashion, branding, I want to do it all, honey,” the mother of two explained.

As Bardi Gang hopes their favorite rapper changes her mind, there is still music to celebrate. Cardi B’s record-breaking debut album Invasion Of Privacy reached its sixth-anniversary last month. Additionally, on Tuesday (May 14) the rapper added four songs to Spotify’s billion-stream club: “Girls Like You” with Maroon 5, “I Like It,” with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, “Taki Taki” with Selena Gomez and Ozuna, and “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion.

“The more you get, the more you want, so you never feel satisfied,” the 31-year-old detailed to Vogue of the milestone achievement. “I sit back and think, Your daughter’s bedroom is bigger than [the] apartment that you grew up in. The goal is never gonna be reached because I’m always hungry for more.”
