Cardi B’s Musical Journey

Cardi B, known for her fiery lyrics and unique style, has been on a musical spree. Following her singles “Hot Shit” and 2021’s “Up,” fans have eagerly awaited more from the rapper.

In 2020, the decision to not submit “WAP” for Grammy consideration raised eyebrows. It was later revealed that the song was saved for a potential album-based Grammy run in 2021. While Cardi B has remained tight-lipped about her next album, she hinted at having a title and release date in mind during a conversation with Whoo Kid.

By the close of 2022, Cardi B addressed a leak of what turned out to be fake new material by sharing a snippet of an unreleased song, captioning it, “HERE some scraps since yall STARVING.” Check out a video of Cardi B dancing atop a Rugrat.

Megan Thee Stallion’s Rising Stardom

Megan Thee Stallion, another powerhouse in the hip-hop industry, unveiled her second album, Traumazine, in August 2022. Since then, her stardom has skyrocketed. She showcased her versatility by hosting Saturday Night Live, appearing in the Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and filming for the upcoming movie Dicks: The Musical.

A significant event in Megan’s life was the sentencing of Tory Lanez to 10 years in prison for shooting her. Reflecting on the traumatic experience, Megan penned an op-ed, stating, “As I reflect on the past three years, I view myself as a survivor, because I have truly survived the unimaginable. [This guilty verdict] was a victory for every woman who has ever been shamed, dismissed, and blamed for a violent crime committed against them.”
