New Music: Cardi B - 'Be Careful'
You’ve been warned. Following “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi,” Cardi B is putting her man on blast with her third single “Be Careful,” which seems to be inspired by her real life romance with Offset.
The Bronx rapper, who is rumored to be pregnant with fiancé Offset’s child, calls out her man over his infidelity. “I wanna get married, like the Curries, Steph and Ayesha shit,” she raps. “But we more like Belly, Tommy and Keisha shit / Gave you TLC, you wanna creep and shit / Poured out my whole heart to a piece of shit.”
Over the Vinylz, Boi-1da, and Frank Dukes production, she warns him not to mess with her heart. “It’s not a threat, it’s a warning / Be careful with me,” she raps, while borrowing lyrics from Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor.”
Cardi’s highly-anticipated debut album Invasion of Privacy arrives April 6. The following day, she will perform on “SNL” and Coachella later in the month.
