It sounds as though Cardi B is gearing up to finally release her second studio album.
In an interview with Vogue México y Latinoamérica, Cardi hinted that she's focusing on the long-awaited follow-up to her 2018 debut album, Invasion of Privacy.
“I’m not going to release any more collaborations, I’m going to put out my next solo single," she shared. "Right now I’m working on the cover art and ideas for the next record because it’s definitely coming up."
While Cardi said her single, presumably taken from her next album, is "coming out very soon," she added that she has other aspirations, too. "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.”
Cardi B has had roles in both 2019's Hustlers and the ninth Fast and Furious film, and she previously collaborated with Fashion Nova for a clothing line.
On her Instagram Stories, Cardi showcased one of her cover story shots where her jawline tattoo reading "Wave" is prominent.
"Reppin' my son name on a Vogue magazine is everything to me," the 30year-old wrote.
Despite not releasing a solo project since 2018, Cardi has dropped a number of one-offs including the 2020 megahit "WAP" with Megan Thee Stallion. Other notable singles include "Up" and "Hot Shit," which features the artist formerly known as Kanye West and Lil Durk. For the most part, though, she's been on an unstoppable run of features, collaborating with everyone from Latto to GloRilla, and more recently her husband Offset. Last year, she suggested that she'd even be down to do a joint mixtape with Offset.
The married couple got personal on their recent collaborative single "Jealousy," which references allegations that he cheated on her. In an interview after the arrival of the single, Offset expressed regret over his infidelity.
Earlier this month, Cardi threatened to sue someone who posted an alleged image and voice recording of Offset cheating. "So you guys are going to receive a letter from his lawyer," she stated in a since-deleted post. "Because all these little games that you guys want to play online–it's going to be over with. ... You're going to be getting sued, and we're going to make an example out of you. Yeah, and that was a terrible AI voice, by the way, so yeah, mxm, bye."
