We probably shouldn't expect Cardi B's debut album anytime soon.
For the latest update on the still-in-progress untitled album, Cardi B confirmed Sunday that she's taking her time to craft something that feels "right." As previously teased, Cardi added that she's finished multiple songs for the debut that were later shelved because she didn't think they were album-worthy. "I have a lot of pressure on me," Cardi tweeted:
When a fan posited that she should host private listening sessions for the album to crowdsource feedback, Cardi revealed she's considered doing exactly that:
Cardi has made similar comments before, most notably in her recent Rolling Stone cover story. She said she has "six, seven solid songs" she feels are album quality, though she admitted her opinion of them could very well change within a month. "It's not as fun to do music," she said. "My mind doesn't flow as free 'cause I have so much on my mind."
Though many are placing pressure on Cardi to capitalize on the success of her breakout hit "Bodak Yellow" (and the string of hit features she's released since), others—including J. Cole—have advised her to ignore those expectations and just worry about the work. "You already won," Cole told her in September. "Just drop and repeat."
