Cardi B Reportedly Renegotiating Record Deal Ahead of New Album

The wait for Cardi B’s sophomore album continues.

According to a new report, the long-awaited project is being held up by contact negotiations. Insiders tell HITS Daily Double that the Grammy-winning rapper is in the midst of a “protracted renegotiation” with her label Atlantic Records, which has delayed the release of her next album.

It’s unclear what exactly is holding up the deal, but HITS says that it could be more than money involved.

Cardi has not released any solo music since her single “Press” in May 2019. She has often teased fans about the long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s record-breaking debut Invasion of Privacy.

Earlier this year, she shared a couple snippets of new music, including one Wheezy-produced track. In March, she said that her single was being put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I can never put a date on it ’cause when you feel that you got those songs, that’s when it’s gonna come out,” she told Baller Alert in February. “I cannot put a date on my ears. When I feel like I have it, that’s when.”

On Sunday, Cardi celebrated Mother’s Day with her family including Offset and daughter Kulture. Offset showered his wife with gifts including Birkin bags and boxes of roses.
