Cardi B’s sophomore album has been anticipated since the release of her debut, Invasion of Privacy, in 2018. While we don’t have a release date – or any specifics, for that matter – we do know that Cardi is already certain about her upcoming album.
Bobby Foster commented on Twitter in response to learning that the mother of two planned to include both ‘WAP’ and ‘Up’ on her sophomore album, “I blame the streaming era. Artists just do this to get certifications for their album. I don’t like it.” The creator later deleted the post, claiming that he “was not trying to start a stan war,” which prompted him to do so.
The post triggered a lot of discussion on social media about what Cardi’s intentions are – and whether or not they matter to anyone else. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper, of course, didn’t hesitate to join the conversation once she heard about it. She responded in response to Foster’s reason for his removal, “Stop trying to act innocent when [you] know [you] was trying to pander.”
“Why haven’t you said nothing about other [artists] who recently put songs [before] the pandemic on their album or people that have to put other [people’s] songs on their shit… Imagine my biggest song not being on [an] album.”
