Cardi B. Talks Being More Open To Showing Her “Lovey-Dovey” Side In Music

During a recent interview, Cardi gave some insight as to what fans can expect on her second studio album.

Cardi said she’s getting more comfortable with showing her softer side in music. The Jasmine Brand reports she said,

“when it comes to me writing or putting ideas of my personal life [in the music], I get really shy. When I perform songs like “Be Careful” or “Ring,” I usually close my eyes because I get really shy about showing that lovey-dovey side. Even to my engineer, I start giggling. I be like, ‘Oh, my God, I can’t. This is so embarrassing.’”

Cardi went on to say that her musical influences stem from the Chicago drill scene. She said when hearing that type of music as an upcoming artist, that was the sound she wanted to bounce off of.

“When I started becoming an artist, I got influenced by a lot of Chicago drill music. That’s the type of artist I always wanted to be: I like to rap about the streets, and I like to rap about my p*ssy. I don’t give a f*ck about it. When it was time to get more creative with my love side or my R&B side, I was like, “This makes me feel weird and uncomfortable.” I’m getting better at it.

A few months ago, Cardi revealed her next album will have “Lemonade moments” on it. Back in 2019, she said that she plans on naming the album Tiger Woods, but it’s not clear if she’s still doing that.
