Cardi B Reveals Steamy Cover Art for New Single “Enough (Miami)”

Enough is enough for Cardi B

The 31-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning superstar has taken to Instagram to reveal the cover art for her upcoming single “Enough (Miami),” which she’ll release on Friday, March 15.

Cardi BIn the photo, a nude Cardi B lays across a white sofa with her hair in long waves down her shoulders, rocking a glass skin look with her makeup.

Last week, Cardi B teased the fiery single via TikTok. “Me vs. you and you know who they pickin’,” she raps on the track. “I can survive in the coldest conditions… B–ches is washed, soapin’ the dishes/ I apply pressure like boa constrictors/ One b–ch, two b–ch, old b–ch, new b–ch, none of y’all not gonna do s–t/ I’m in Miami I pull up on cruise ships.”

The track is a follow-up to Cardi B’s recently released single, “Like What (Freestyle).”

The song is Cardi’s first solo record since 2021’s “Up,” which earned the rapper a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit and a 2022 Grammy nomination for best rap performance.

Since then she’s dropped “Tomorrow 2” with GloRilla, “Jealously” with Offset and the Megan Thee Stallion collaboration “Bongos.”

A new album from the rapper would mark her first since 2018’s Invasion of Privacy. The album spawned two No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles, the diamond-certified “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It.” She also won the Grammy for best rap album for Invasion of Privacy, topping Pusha T, Mac Miller, Travis Scott and Nipsey Hussle.

Cardi B Teases Fiery Next Single on TikTok

Cardi B is teasing her next fiery single…

The 31-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning rap superstar has released a teaser for what appears to be her next single in a TikTok video from the recording studio.

Cardi BBarefoot and dressed down, Cardi ripped off her typically acerbic lines over a spare, g-funk style beat, once again calling out her haters.

“Me vs. you and you know who they pickin’,” she rhymes to set up the unnamed track. “I can survive in the coldest conditions… B–ches is washed, soapin’ the dishes/ I apply pressure like boa constrictors/ One b–ch, two b–ch, old b–ch, new b–ch, none of y’all not gonna do s–t/ I’m in Miami I pull up on cruise ships.”

Dancing along to her own track, Cardi gives the ultimate ultimatum, rapping, “I see my opps linking up, I’m like, ‘What the f–k?/ If you scared, then just say that hoe/ Enough is enough.”

The post got a few comment from famous friends, including SZA, who wrote “the hair is giving” and Camila Cabello, who added, “sheeeeesh.”

At press time Cardi hadn’t provided any additional information regarding the track, though the caption of her TikTok post, “15” and a winking emoji, appeared to suggest it was due out on March 15.

If the song comes out next week, it would mark the follow-up to last week’s “Like What (Freestyle).” She also dropped a sexy video for the freestyle in which pays tribute to Missy Elliot and tries on a wide variety of eclectic outfits in the clip directed by estranged husband rapper Offset.

“Like What” is Cardi’s first solo record since 2021’s “Up,” which earned the rapper her a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit and a 2022 Grammy nomination for best rap performance. Since then she’s dropped “Tomorrow 2” with GloRilla, “Jealously” with Offset and the Megan Thee Stallion collab “Bongos.”

Cardi has been teasing new music for months, including an in Instagram Story last week in which she told fans that her long-awaited sophomore album could be released this year.

She told the Bardi Gang that she was “not letting my anxiety, I’m not letting what haters say, I’m not letting what fans say” prevent her from releasing new songs, adding that “I’ve got no choice because I’m dropping my album this year, so stay tuned for the announcement.”

It would be the follow-up to the MC’s breakthrough 2018 debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, which earned her a Grammy.

Cardi B Releases New Single “Like What (Freestyle)”

Cardi B is freestylin’…

The 31-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning rap superstar has officially released her new single “Like What (Freestyle).

Cardi BCardi B teased the new track via her Instagram Story earlier this week.

“I ain’t even got dressed / Any L that I took come after YS / Oh man, oh man, oh man, oh man,” she rapped in the snippet.

The teaser arrived one week after her estranged husband Offset took to his own IG Stories account to encourage the “WAP” rapper to drop her new music.

In the video, the Migos star was bobbing his head with a satisfied stank face, writing, “Stop being scary and drop the album sh– goes crazy” with a line of fire emojis.

“Like What (Freestyle)” marks Cardi B’s first solo record since 2021’s “Up,” which earned the MC her fifth Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit. “Up” also earned a 2022 Grammy nomination for best rap performance.

The anticipation for her sophomore album has increased over the years since she dropped her critically acclaimed debut album Invasion of Privacy in 2018. The set debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and produced two Hot 100 No. 1, diamond-certified singles: “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It,” featuring J Balvin and Bad BunnyInvasion of Privacy also won best rap album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Last August, following her features on Offset’s “Jealousy” and “Freaky,” GloRilla‘s “Tomorrow 2,” Latto‘s “Put It On Da Floor Again” and FendiDa Rappa‘s “Point Me 2,” Cardi B promised in her Vogue México y Latinoamérica cover story that she wasn’t going to release any more collaborations until she dropped her next solo single. But “Bongos” with Megan Thee Stallion dropped a month later, a sequel to their 2020 Hot 100 smash “WAP.”

“I’m going to put out my next solo single. Right now, I’m working on the cover art and ideas for the next record because it’s definitely coming up,” she told the publication at the time. “Everyone always tells me I should put the record out now. They did when I released ‘WAP’ and when I released ‘Up,’ but I always let them know I’m not going to wait long after all these singles. So stay tuned because it’s coming out very soon.”

Cardi B Takes to Social Media to Tease New Music Release

Cardi B’s highly anticipated sophomore album may be closer to release…

The 31-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-winning superstar has taken to her Instagram Stories to re-share a fan’s post, in which a snippet of an upcoming song is teased.

Cardi B

“I ain’t even got dressed / Any L that I took come after YS / Oh man, oh man, oh man, oh man,” she declares on the track. Check out the Instagram Story before it disappears here.

The teasers come just a week after Cardi B’s estranged husband Offset took to his own Stories to encourage the “Bodak Yellow” rapper to release her new music.

In the video, the Migos star is seen bobbing his head and loving the music with a satisfied stank face on, and since the video had no audio, viewers were left to their imagination in interpreting the caption.

Stop being scary and drop the albumit read, along with “s–t goes crazy [fire emoji],” he wrote.

A new Cardi B album would mark her first since 2018’s Invasion of Privacy. The album spawned two No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles, the diamond-certified “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It.” She also won the Grammy for best rap album for Invasion of Privacy, topping Pusha T, Mac Miller, Travis Scott and Nipsey Hussle.

Back in August, Cardi B promised that she was not going to release any more collaborations until she dropped her next solo single. Of course, her hit collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, “Bongos,” dropped a month later, but Cardi B insisted that she’s focused on her sophomore project.

“I’m going to put out my next solo single. Right now, I’m working on the cover art and ideas for the next record because it’s definitely coming up,” she said at the time. “Everyone always tells me I should put the record out now. They did when I released ‘WAP’ [with Megan Thee Stallion] and when I released ‘Up,’ but I always let them know I’m not going to wait long after all these singles. So stay tuned because it’s coming out very soon.”

In 2021, the duo were five-time VMA nominees for their hit single “WAP” including Song of the Summer, Video of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Collaboration and Best Hip Hop.

The song made history as the first female rap collaboration to debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, then spending four weeks at the top spot as well as being certified platinum 8x in the U.S.

Cardi B Releases New Megan Thee Stallion-Collab Single “Bongos”

Cardi B is bringing the heat this September…

The 30-year-old half-Dominican American Grammy-wining rap superstar has joined voices with Megan Thee Stallion to release their latest joint single, “Bongos.”

Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, BongosCardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are clearly not ready to give up their Hot Girl Summer i the new video for their latest joint single.

The Technicolor extravaganza that dropped on Friday, September 8 is filled to bursting with a rainbow of high-fashion looks, shoes so impossibly stacked that even Lady Gaga would have trouble balancing in them and, of course, lyrics that will keep censors working overtime.

For their first collaboration since 2020’s Billboard Hot 200 No. 1 smash “WAP,” the pair tapped Ukrainian director Tanu Muino, who kicks things off with a shot from behind of dancers in brightly colored bathing suits bouncing along to the song’s hypnotic “bong, bong, bong” refrain as they balance on beachside chaise lounges on geometrically shaped high heels.

After a quick glimpse of Cardi laying in the sand in a purple and pink bikini with a gigantic furry matching hat, the “Jealousy” rapper struts her stuff in Carnival-like blue, pink and yellow flamingo headdresses and matching bathing suits for a mansion full of men in bikinis as she busts out the song’s provocative first verse. “N—a eats this a– like a plum/ This p—y tight like a nun/ Better chew it up like it’s gum/ Then wipe your mouth when you’re done,” she raps over the song’s insistent beat.

“I’m hot like Nevada/ P—y get popped, piñata/ B–ch, I look like money/ You could print my face on a dollar,” Cardi adds before the “Beat it up (bong bong bong bong)” refrain comes around and Cardi twerks in front of an open fridge while rocking a burgundy string bikini and matching cascading braids.

Cardi B warned fans in a preview DJ Whoo Kid interview that fans shouldn’t expect the “Bongos” video to serve up the same energy she and Meg brought in the eye-popping “WAP” clip, but the two definitely share a similar high-fashion, all-the-colors-of-the-rainbow aesthetic, minus the latter’s celeb (and big cat) cameos, of course.

Cardi B kicks off the second “Bongos” verse modeling one of her wildest outfits ever, a body-hugging paisley bodysuit that matches the pattern on a couch she grinds her hips on while dissing unnamed “dusty-a– hoes.” After Cardi’s surfside hip-swiveling routine with a half dozen dancers, Megan gets her spot, entering the action in a provocative green monokini and matching headdress while posing on a diving board.
