At last, Cardi B has delivered her hard-hitting single “Press.”
The Bronx rapper first teased the record back in December 2018, posting a video of her inside the studio while reciting a few lines.
“Press, press, press, press, press/Cardi don't need more press,” she rapped. “Kill 'em all, put them hoes to rest/Walk in, bulletproof vest/Please tell me who she gon' check/Murder scene, Cardi made a mess.”
More than five months after she shared the snippet, Cardi announced the track would arrive by Thursday night. She promoted the release with several images of her handcuffed in court as well as a photo of convicted murderer Aileen Wuornos.
You can purchase “Press” now on iTunes or stream it via Apple Music and Spotify.
The song will presumably turn up on Cardi’s sophomore studio album, which is expected to arrive sometime this year.
“Of course it’s gonna be an album in 2019,” she said in an Instagram Live broadcast back in January. “Hopefully, I could get my album done around the same time that ‘Invasion of Privacy’ came out, but I don’t know how possible that’s gonna be because I feel like I’m going to be extremely, extremely busy.”
