Cardi B Releases New Single

Bardi’s album update comes on the heels of her releasing her new song “Like What (Freestyle)” on Friday, which samples Missy Elliott‘s 1999 hit “She’s a B***h.” Cardi’s Grammy winning debut album Invasion of Privacy dropped all the way back in 2018. In December of 2022, she revealed what has stopped her from putting out new music.

“I do have anxiety,” Bardi revealed in a video shared on social media. “I’ve been having a lot of anxiety ’cause I know right after I drop my album I have to go on tour. And I have bad separation anxiety from my kids.”

“When it comes to the music, I just be feeling like I don’t be liking anything,” she continued. “I feel like I got so many songs, I just don’t like nothing. Like nothing is good enough. I got so much f**king money saved up, I be like, ‘Yeah, whatever the f**k.'”
