The “Bodak Yellow” rapper, who took the world by storm last summer, announced at the iHeartRadio Music Awards two weeks ago that her album would be released sometime in April.
“My album will be coming in April. Yes, sir. April,” she said before heading off the stage after winning the prize for best new artist. “Stay tuned, motherf—ers!”
She also thanked her team, family and fans — and paid special tribute to her critics.
“I want to thank my haters too because they be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it, but it benefits me!” she said with a chuckle.
In November, she tweeted that she was taking her time completing her debut album despite pressure from fans to deliver straight away.
“I have a lot of pressure on me.I have songs stashed up. I just don’t think they qualified for my album,” she tweeted. “Sometimes I think is ready sometimes I think it’s not so I’m going to take my time till it’s right.”
In Rolling Stone‘s November cover, Cardi B told the magazine she frequently battled herself when it came to which songs she wanted to include in her debut.
“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 said. “It’s not as fun to do music… my mind doesn’t flow as free ‘cause I have so much on my mind.”
