Press, press, press, press, press, Cardi don't need more press... but she brings life to the party, so press is what she'll get.
Putting aside our lyrical genius to focus on Cardi B's, we find her as bold as always with her words in her latest release, WAP, featuring rapper Megan Thee Stallion, after her 2019 platinum certified single Press.
The New York rapper is known for her uproarious spirit and unfiltered tongue, which have made her one of the most iconic superstars of this or any other era.
WAP, which stands for "Wet A** Pu**y," has been widely acclaimed by listeners as well as music critics.
The forthcoming lyrics of this duet successfully triggered people on a wide scale of sentiments, with the majority winning at labeling the track "empowering."
While men still dominate the hip hop and R&B scenes, with music videos that flagrantly showcase women's bodies and lyrics that boast the singers' stamina and financial wealth, it appears that women being at ease with talking about their sexuality is still considered unwomanly and vulgar. With both Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion firmly standing their ground with WAP, they're stamping on the traditional minds.
"As culture-war gasoline goes, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's duet, a seamless union that has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the last two weeks, is high octane," writes The New York Times' pop music critic Jon Caramanica.
With over 250 million views on YouTube alone in the past two or so months, this "feminist anthem" - rightfully called so by many - remains the talk of the town to this day.
Even though Cardi B is depriving her fans from a new album that could rectify the cumulating atrocities of 2020, she's being generous with her features.
Enter Me Gusta, the Spanish song that's been comfortably sitting atop music charts in the U.S. as well as South America.
Me Gusta and its 52 million views on YouTube build on the warm, sultry sound that's made Anitta one of Brazil's biggest breakout pop superstars.
So put together the hotness of Brazil and the Spanish language alongside the intimidating straightforwardness of New York City, and you'll get a chart-breaking hit, courtesy of Me Gusta and Cardi B.
