Cardi B Addresses a Cheating Lover on New Single “Be Careful”
With one week to go before the release of her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, Cardi B kicks up the anticipation a notch by dropping the new single, "Be Careful," today (March 30).
The song is less lively than the Atlantic Records artist's recent bangers and finds Cardi addressing relationship woes over a bouncy tune produced by Vinylz, Boi-1da and Frank Dukes.
The "Bodak Yellow" rapper is not here for the BS. "Trust me, nigga, it's cool, though/Said that you was workin', but you're out here chasin' culo," she raps. "And putas, chillin' poolside, livin' two lives/I could've did what you did to me to you a few times/But if I did decide to slide, find a nigga/Fuck him, suck his dick, you would've been pissed/But that's not my M.O., I'm not that type of bitch/And karma for you is gon' be who you end up with."
We even hear Cardi singing a bit on the track, as she croons on the chorus, "The only man, baby, I adore/I gave you everything, what's mine is yours/I want you to live your life of course/But I hope you get what you dyin' for/Be careful with me."
It's go time now, with the Bronx rapper officially rolling out her debut. After first giving the LP an October 2017 release date last year, Bardi decided against it and regrouped. During her acceptance speech for Best New Artist at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards a few weeks ago, she revealed her plans to put out the project next month. "My album will be coming in April, OKurrr," she told the crowd. "Yessir. April. Stay tuned, muthaf... ow!"
Earlier this week, she debuted the cover art for the project and official release date. "My album cover !!! LADIES AND GENTS ! My album INVASION OF PRIVACY will be out next week April 6!!!!!!!❤️💪🏾," she captioned the cover on Instagram. In the image, Cardi sports a short yellow hairdo, white retro glasses and a checkered-print outfit.
The day after the release of her Invasion of Privacy album, she will perform on Saturday Night Live as the musical guest.
