Cardi B Teases New Song That Samples Janet Jackson: ‘Y’all Like This Vibe for CB2?’

Cardi B has given more hope to the Bardi Gang in regards to her long-awaited sophomore album being released in 2024 by teasing another snippet on her Instagram Story on Monday night (July 1). The clip finds the Bronx native showcasing a softer side of her typically fiery raps, and the possible CB2 single samples Janet Jackson’s “Funny How Time Flies (When You’re Having Fun).”

“I hope that you on your way/ Crazy ’bout you,” she sings over Jackson’s beat. “Waiting on you, can’t wait to sit on that face/ Focused on you.”

“Yall like this vibe for CB2?” Cardi captioned the video, which shows her in a car.

Fans seemed to be feeling the snippet in their reactions on X. “Love that song!!!!!!! Belcalis you’ve done it again!!!! So ready for cb2,” one member of the Bardi Gang wrote.

“Funny How Time Flies” was produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Plenty of other artists have sampled it in the past, including Tinashe, SWV, The Lost Boyz and Camp Lo. Jackson’s track was originally released in the U.K. and Ireland, but was ruled ineligible to chart in the U.S., while other Control singles from her — “Nasty” and “When I Think of You” — dominated commercially.

Cardi seemed to be practicing her affirmations on X over the weekend when she put out good energy into the universe when it comes to her proving her detractors wrong once again. “I have everything planned, locked, and ready to go. Every thing I said I would do this year, I’m going to do it. Nothing is going to stop me. I proved myself before and I’m going to do it again… now rest,” she wrote.

It’s been more than six years since Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album arrived in April 2018. It topped the Billboard 200 with 255,000 album units sold in the first week and went on to win best rap album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
