Cardi B plans to drop a new album this year

Cardi B is planning a new album for 2019, possibly as soon as spring, the rapper said Tuesday during an interview on Instagram Live.

“Of course it’s gonna be an album in 2019,” she said. “Hopefully, I could get my album done around the same time that ‘Invasion of Privacy’ came out, but I don’t know how possible that’s gonna be because I feel like I’m going to be extremely, extremely busy.”

“Invasion of Privacy,” her multiplatinum debut full-length, was released last April and quickly became one of the biggest albums of the year. While there was talk several weeks back of a deluxe edition of the album being released with new tracks, given her comments it seems likely that any new material would be held for a sophomore release. She was a featured artist on several songs in 2018 — most recently Pardison Fontaine’s “Backin’ It Up” and El Alfa’s “Mi Mami,” along with the Maroon 5 summer mash “Girls Like You” — she has not released any music of her own since the album.
