Cardi B got candid about what’s been holding up the release of her sophomore album. On Dec. 6, the rapper became vulnerable with fans about the reasons for the holdup. In an Instagram Live, she said a lack of confidence in the quality of the music, criticism and separation anxiety have all contributed to the delay.
As she walked around her home, Cardi spoke with fans about the four-year delay. She started by acknowledging the fans’ questions about new music and then proceeded to “get real with herself.”
“I feel like I have gotten too comfortable because, you know — I’m just a mom, and I do have anxiety. I’ve been having a lot of anxiety because I know right after I drop my album, I have to go out on tour, and I have bad separation anxiety from my kids,” she said.
The Bronx native then divulged she also wasn’t feeling the spark in the studio. “When it comes to the music, I just be feeling like I don’t be liking anything. I feel like I got so many songs. I just don’t like nothing. Like nothing is good enough. I got so much f**king money saved up, I be like, ‘Yeah, whatever the f**k.'”
She then stated that music has begun to feel like a “job” and that she was over the constant criticism.
