Patti LaBelle Teases Cardi B Collab

Now 80-years old, Patti LaBelle has hinted at collaborating with Cardi B.

Not the first time the legendary songstress and contemporary 31-year old rapper have worked together, the ladies collaborated on a promo for Cardi’s Whipshots alcoholic whipped cream and Patti’s Good Life pies.

Excited about getting into the studio, LaBelle told Entertainment Tonight “I haven’t had an album out in 20 years, so I’m working on that now.” “It should be out at the end of this year and it’s called 8065. I’m 80 years young and 65 years in show business. So that’s what the project will be called, and that’s what my tour is called. 8065!”

When questioned about teaming up with Cardi again, she replied “Why not? She’s like one of my new best friends.” “To know that she was into Patti LaBelle. She’s like my new buddy.”

Born Belcalis Marlenis Cephus, Cardi took to social media with “Anyway NO album this year I don’t care I’m relaxing this year .. Dropping these features I already committed to and traveling and enjoying my summer. (sic)”

Insisting that she prioritizes her career over her daughter Kulture (5), son Wave (2) with estranged husband Offset (32,) following their 2023 separation, she admitted that she struggles to be a wife and mother at all times because she will always put her music first. 

In a Rolling Stone interview Grammy award winner stated “The part I love is that [Offset and I] really like each other, like a support system. We’re really both each other’s cheerleader. I don’t really like talking to people. I’m not as social. If I want something from somebody, he’ll be the one that will talk. Because I don’t like asking. We have our own bad stuff.” “We’re from two different worlds.”  “Sometimes I cannot be … not that I cannot be a wife.” “It’s just like, my career takes my life. You know what I’m saying?” “My career comes first, then my kids come second. And then sometimes I don’t realise that I’m putting so many things before my relationship.”

Last December Cardi B and her fellow rapper/husband had split up after six years of marriage, but the idea of divorce was difficult to come to terms with.
