Sorry Cardi B fans, there’s still a long way to go before we’ll get to hear the rapper’s second album.

In fact, the WAP hitmaker has revealed she’s planning to step away from the limelight ‘for long time’ in order to finish the follow-up to 2018’s Invasion of Privacy.

With chart-toppers WAP and Up already released from her sophomore album, many had hoped her second album would be out soon.

However, in a new interview, Cardi shared details on how the coronavirus pandemic is to blame for the constant delays in her release plan.

She explained to XXL magazine: ‘I feel like at this point, it’s like a timeline that I created. Because last year I was like, “I gotta put out my album this year”.

‘But, then I just stopped working on my album out of nowhere because I feel like the whole COVID thing discouraged me to put out my album. Because I want to put out an album, and I want to tour.’

Cardi revealed she isn’t keen to solely promote her album through video calls as she added: ‘I don’t feel like if I do like, an album promo run and everything, like, there’s no feelings to it, me doing interviews with people through a computer. I want to meet up with people. I want to have a conversation. It’s a better vibe.

‘I love album release parties. I would love an album release party in New York. I could have one in Atlanta, but I want one also at home. And I want to see people.’

The rapper later added: ‘But then now that I keep putting out my singles, I keep saying like, “Damn. I have no choice but to put out my album this year.”‘

Cardi stated that, at the time of the interview, she had ‘a week of making sure I handle all my business, making sure everything is good, go to meetings’.

‘And then, I’m going away for a very long time to finish my album,’ she confirmed.

Let’s just hope that album drops sooner, rather than later.
