Cardi B Says She’s Getting Better At Showing Her “Lovey-Dovey” Side In Her Music: Feels Weird And Uncomfortable
As mega rapper Cardi B gears up for the release of her second studio album, she opens up about the ways in which she is becoming more comfortable with her music.
During a recent interview, Cardi B admitted that she’s becoming more comfortable with sharing the softer side with her fans in her music. 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.'”
Though Cardi B (born Belcalis Almánzar) was raised in the Bronx, New York, she shares that her initial influence came from a region outside of her home state.
“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.
Self admittedly, Cardi enjoys rapping about her feminine parts, such as in her #1 hit single with Megan The Stallion, “WAP”. The song stirred up so much controversy over its topic, all the while maintaining popularity because of it’s hard-hitting beat and its compelling ability to empower women to be proud of their private parts.
