After winning Best New Artist at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Cardi B announced that she would release her debut album soon.
The "Bodak Yellow" rapper has been teasing her solo full-length album since fall last year but has not revealed an exact release date. She said last year that it would be out by November, then January, but as of this writing, it is not ready yet.
However, this time around, Cardi B is confident that the album will be out by April.
"Stay tuned motherf*****," she said during her acceptance speech.
One of her producers, Variety reported, hinted that Beyonce might be contributing the still-untitled new album. Cardi B's fiance, Offset of the rap trio Migos, might also play a part in her debut LP.
The 25-year-old rapper also thanked her fans and the people who helped her win the award on Sunday, March 11. She also addressed the haters who download her music anyway and "talk crap about it." She adds, "but it benefits me."
Before taking the stage to accept her award, Cardi B also performed during the ceremony held at the Forum in Los Angeles, California. She performed her hit singles "Bodak Yellow" and "Bartier Cardi." For "No Limit," G-Eazy joined her onstage.
She also performed the songs "MotorSport" by Migos and "Finesse" by Bruno Mars.
So far, Cardi B has released two mixtapes: Gangsta Bitch Music Volume 1 (2016) and Volume 2 (2017). The track "Bodak Yellow," which might be included in her LP, reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in October. "Bartier Cardi" and her collaborations also made it into the songs chart.
In January, Cardi B spoke to Cosmopolitan about her upcoming wedding to Offset. The Migos rapper proposed back in October while they were performing in a concert in Philadelphia.
However, the couple has been plagued by break up rumors after Offset's alleged cheating. Cardi B made it clear that she is standing by her man.
"It's like everybody is coming down my neck like, 'Why are you not leaving him? You have low self-esteem,'" she told Entertainment Tonight. "I don't have low self-esteem... I know I look good. I know I'm rich, I know I'm talented. I know I could get any man I want — any basketball player, football player. But I want to work out my s*** with my man, and I don't got to explain why."
