Despite Cardi B’s recent claims, it appears she may still be planning to release an album in 2024. As the latest cover star for Rolling Stone, Cardi opened up about her long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s Invasion of Privacy and even worked on it during her interview with the publication.

Although the interview took place in March, Rolling Stone contacted Cardi’s team after her recent statement on Tuesday (May 14) about not releasing her sophomore album. Her representative confirmed that “an album in 2024 is still the plan.”

Cardi’s since-deleted tweet, in which she expressed frustration with fans pressuring her for new music, suggested she might have posted it out of spite. In the tweet, she agreed with a fan who said people don’t appreciate her transparency and should take a break from social media.

“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 ass…” Cardi replied. “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.”

As of March, Rolling Stone reported that Cardi’s album was partially done but still needed an intro, at least three more songs, a title, features, and a rollout plan.

Discussing her upcoming album, Cardi shared:

“I’m a different person every single day. When I’m in a good mood and I’m with my friends, [I’m] like, ‘Damn, I want my shit to be played in this club.’ But then I might be mad with my man, so it’s like now I want to do this song. But then I want to do a pop record. I want to do my sing-y shit.”

Cardi B had previously assured fans that a new album would be coming in 2024, marking six years since her record-breaking debut album.

In March, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper revealed she had numerous songs, including some recorded as early as January 2023. She posted an Instagram video captioned: “January 2023…. I really got like 100 songs,” showcasing a screen full of tracks labeled “Cunty,” all recorded in late January between 4 and 5 in the morning.

“January 27 of 20-20-fuckin’-three. I be working on this shit at 5 a.m. — you know I’m a night owl,” she said. “I promise y’all this year: I’m not letting my anxiety, I’m not letting what haters say, I’m not letting what fans say… If I do a song, Imma just fuckin’ drop it.

“Well, I got no choice, because I’m dropping my album this year, so stay tuned for the announcement.”

In March, Cardi teased her sophomore release with the single “Enough (Miami),” arriving two weeks after she released the “Like What (Freestyle),” sampling Missy Elliott’s 1999 hit “She’s a Bitch.” Cardi followed it up with a feature on Shakira’s “Puntería,” the opening track from Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran, which debuted in mid-March.
