Cardi B Reveals Plans For Rest of 2024: ‘Relaxing…Traveling and Enjoying My Summer,’ But ‘NO Album’

Cardi B has big plans for the rest of this year, including some chill time, maybe a trip to the beach, but, sorry to report, not releasing her long-awaited sophomore album. The revelation came on Monday (May 14) in a since-deleted response to a comment from an X user who said it was “time for her to pull back from social media platforms,” dubbing the “Bongos” rapper’s engagement with her fans as “unappreciated.”

In a since-deleted reply (screen-grabbed by HipHopDX), Cardi didn’t disagree, writing, “Exactly and I tell myself this all the time .. and I hate that I fall back and start interacting again and it bites me in the a–.”

Then Cardi dropped a very disappointing truth bomb on the Bardigang. “Anyway NO album this year I don’t care I’m relaxing this year .. Dropping these features I already committed to and traveling and enjoying my summer.”

The revelation was especially harsh considering Cardi celebrated the sixth anniversary of her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, in April by teasing what fans can expect from her forever delayed second full-length. “6 years ago I released my first album and it broke so many records GAH LEE!!” she wrote at the time of the album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned a Grammy award for best rap album at the 2019 Grammys. “6 years later I’m preparing to drop the next one this year.. it’s so different from what everyone is expecting and I’m sooo excited.”

For now, it seems, fans will have to sate their appetite for more Cardi with her most recent loosies, “Enough (Miami)” and the Shakira collab “Puntería,” the latest single from Shak’s Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran album.
