"And even though, so let's say, God forbid, we don't [get married], my man is a great father to his kids, so I will never lose". And if you've been listening closely to Invasion of Privacy, then you peeped that the rapper even mentioned her love for Fashion Nova on "She Bad" featuring YG; "I'm his favorite type of chick, boujee, bad, and thick". She explained that when it came time to make a decision as to whether she could handle both a burgeoning music career and having a baby with her fiancee, she decided that she would be able to have both a career and a child. Taken together, these songs present Cardi as an artist confident enough to expand her sound but smart-and some might say calculated-enough not to drift too far from her wheelhouse.
As far as what her designs will look like, she told Apple Music Beats 1: 'It's gonna be insane because it's what I like'. "Is she a stripper, a rapper, a singer?'" the 25-year-old asks on her new album, mocking anyone still baffled by how an enterprising young loudmouth from the Bronx could graduate from the strip club to a reality television series, to acquiring a bazillion Instagram followers, to rapping the dizziest song of 2017.
So, Cardi B is helping out as they talk to guest John Mulaney and they get to the subject of high school prom.
After Fallon said that Trump's coat made it "look like he's trying to sneak a rotisserie chicken into the movie theater", Cardi B quipped back "I didn't know Spanx made jackets!"
The look isn't just special because it's a throwback to Linda Evangelista, though. This newest rendition of "Be Careful", the rapper's second musical act on the late night variety show, doesn't shy away from showing her stomach.
There is no bigger name in hip-hop right now than Cardi B. It's hard to believe now that critics once doubted her longevity in the industry after her Grammy-nominated hit "Bodak Yellow" was released last summer.
I'm a true eighties baby, literally born in the first quarter of 1980, and my first album purchase was Nas' perennial NYC street soundtrack, Illmatic.
She practiced her bedtime storytelling skills: Fallon gave her a couple of children's books for the nursery, including Go the F-k to Sleep, and Cardi read a few pages of the book (with the Roots backing her with a lullabyified version of "Bodak Yellow", naturally). It was just like, 'You know what, I'm a grown woman.
Taking to Twitter after her stint on Saturday Night Love, Cardi wrote: "I started winning when the whole world was doubting on me! think imma lose with my little baby counting on me?"
'It's like, "Actually, I wanted to shit on myself".
And though it's a debut album, it's by no means a debut: Cardi B has been famous for years already, first as a libertine social-media slice-of-life comic, and later as an effervescently campy reality-television standout. "For what? Why would you join a gang?" she insisted.
