Cardi B stopped by The Breakfast Club on Thursday morning (Dec. 1) and teased the release date of her next studio album.
When Cardi B called in for Angela Yee’s final day on The Breakfast Club, host Charlamagne Tha God asked if the rapper had a release date in mind for her Grammy-winning debut album Invasion of Privacy, which she released in April 2018 via Atlantic Records.
“I don’t have a choice; I have to put it out,” she said. “I don’t know, I have a couple of songs that are like definite.” I’m not sure what’s wrong with me. I just need to make up my mind and say it.”
DJ Envy pumped her up by saying that “every record you put out went No. 1” (for the record, Cardi has five No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100). However, the “Up” rapper believes that the new album is “missing something.” “I have to put it out, I have to put it out next year,” she said, revealing a release date.
Charlamagne proposed releasing it on April 6, 2023, to coincide with the fifth anniversary of Invasion of Privacy, and Cardi seemed interested. But only time will tell when her sophomore studio album will be released.
When Charlamagne asked Cardi why she was calling in today, she sadly replied, “Because Angela Yee is leaving.” Yee announced her departure from The Breakfast Club in August to host her own nationally syndicated daily show, Way Up With Angela Yee, which will debut on iHeartRadio. Cardi concluded her farewell performance with an a cappella rendition of “Until We Meet Again,” the closing theme song from the Playhouse Disney series Out of the Box.
“You’re such a huge part of the show, too,” Yee told the chart-topping MC, who has appeared on the show a few times.
However, Cardi B may be expanding her role on The Breakfast Club as early as next year, after Charlamagne suggested she fill in as a guest host during the week leading up to the release of her album. “That would be fun,” she said.
