Cardi B made the big announcement while accepting the Best New Artist award at Sunday’s iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles.
“My album will be coming in April, okurr!” she told the crowd. “Yes, sir, April. Stay tuned, motherfu**ers.”So far, the as-yet-untitled album has spawned the No. 1 smash “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” and “Bartier Cardi,” for which a video is set to premiere tomorrow during the “Love & Hip Hop: New York” reunion special.
Cardi’s debut was originally due last fall, but was pushed back. “I can’t talk about certain things that I went through because I’ll go to jail,” she told Beats 1. “I don’t want people to think that I’m crazy. A lot of people question, what else can she do? I’m gonna show you.”
In addition to winning Best New Artist, Cardi opened the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards with a medley of her biggest hits, plus an appearance from G-Eazy.
