On Thursday afternoon, Cardi B fans lost their collective minds when she shared a vague, but exciting message via Twitter: “I hope ya up at Midnight,” she wrote.
Though some fans assumed Cardi would release a visual for one of her previously released singles, most were convinced the Bronx rapper had a new record up her sleeve. Turns out, the latter theory was correct.
Just hours after teasing the drop, Cardi came through for her fans and unleashed the track “Be Careful,” the third single off her upcoming debut studio album Invasion of Privacy. It follows the Grammy-nominated track “Bodak Yellow” and the gold-certified “Bartier Cardi.”
You can stream the track now on Apple Music/iTunes. It’s also on Spotify.
Invasion of Privacy will mark Cardi’s first full-length project since 2017’s Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2 mixtape. Though there aren’t many details on what the album will deliver, Cardi has admitted that the expectations and increasing anticipation have given her anxiety.
She told Rolling Stone in 2017 that the pressure was impacting her creative process.
“I got six, seven solid songs that I like, but I wonder if a month from now, I’m going to change my mind,” she told the magazine. “It’s not as fun to do music. My mind doesn’t flow as free ‘cause I have so much on my mind.”
Judging by the previously released singles, we’re sure the album will not disappoint.
Invasion of Privacy is set to arrive next Friday, April 6. The following night, Cardi will serve as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, alongside host Chadwick Boseman.
