Cardi B Drops Kanye West + Lil Durk Collab: Look + Listen

Sitting on the track for “almost three years,” Cardi B just released her Kanye West and Lil Durk collaboration ‘Hot S***’.

The release comes after the rapper (born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar) admitted she was “upset” over the execution of the song. And while she nearly didn’t make it available, Cardi agreed to drop the track but refused to make a proper music video. About the collaboration, the artist stated “I think this record is actually older than ‘WAP.’ It is everyone’s favorite.”

During a teary Instagram Live chat with fans, Cardi B said: “I’m just so overwhelmed and so upset. A lot of people have been dropping the ball for the last two months, there has been a lot of miscommunication.” “So I wanted to cancel my release for this week because s*** is not being executed how it’s supposed to. But then I’m like, it’s too drastic. So I will be dropping the song but I will not be releasing a music video with this song.” “I’m just exhausted with everybody. I’m so tired of people not doing their f****** job correctly.”

How the collab with the two rappers came to be remains unknown, however, the artist previously admitted she’s “too shy” to ask male artists to work with her. Though she’s appeared on songs with the likes of Bruno Mars and Maroon 5, the musician admitted she doesn’t have the nerve to ask some of her favorite male counterparts to jump on a track with her because she get’s “star-struck” easily and fears she will sound “corny”.

She said: “When female artists are rising, you don’t have to put one down because the others are rising. Every single time a female rapper comes out, people wanna start fake beef. Maybe because they don’t see me [with other women] as often as people want to. The thing is, I’m shy — and really shy to reach out to male artists, to be honest with you. That’s why a lot of collabs that I want, I haven’t gotten yet because I’m scared to reach out. I always get a little star-struck. I be thinking I’m corny, even though I’m funny.”

‘Hot S***’ is Cardi’s first track as the lead artist since November’s ‘Bet It’ and fans are eagerly awaiting the hip-hop star’s follow-up to her 2018 debut studio album ‘Invasion of Privacy’.
