It’s been four years since Cardi B unleashed her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, and fans are wondering what’s the update on her next project. On Tuesday (June 21), the leader of the Bardi Gang took to her Twitter with an update regarding her long-awaited sophomore effort.
Cardi shared a video in her tweet giving fans a crash course of her résumé since dropping Invasion of Privacy. She combined clips from various music videos with songs such as “Get Up 10,” “Drip,” “Money Bag,” “Bodak Yellow” and more playing in the background.
“Just a little reminder feeling like 2020 when I had to come out and STEP to remind them …..P.S-IM GONNA STOMP THIS TIME AROUND,” Cardi tweeted.
Cardi B has only featured on two songs in 2022 so far with Summer Walker and SZA’s “No Love” and the remix to Kay Flock’s “Shake It,” which also stars Dougie B and Bory300. Her first and only album, Invasion of Privacy, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, moving 255,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, with 103,000 coming from pure album sales.
Despite being a critically acclaimed album, not everyone felt that way. Rolling Stone placed the album at No. 16 on their 200 Greatest Hip Hop Albums list earlier this month, and some people were upset the project ranked above classics such as Nas’ Illmatic, Outkast’s Aquemini and Dr. Dre’s The Chronic.

Drake’s ability to smash music industry records is unparalleled. With every release, the Toronto-bred megastar collects streams like a cistern collects rainwater. And his latest release has proven to be no different. Just one hour after Drake delivered his surprise album Honestly, Nevermind on Friday (June 17), he smashed another record.
According to a press release, Honestly, Nevermind became the biggest dance album in Apple Music history breaking the record for first-day streams worldwide. Drake currently holds the record for the biggest album in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide with 2021’s Certified Lover Boy, while 2018’s Scorpion is the second biggest album by first-day streams worldwide. Drake also holds the record for the biggest song in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide, with “Girls Want Girls.”
Reviews on the album have been mixed. During an episode of The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God compared it to elevator music.
“I don’t mind the vibes you know the vibes to me are the vibes you hear when you’re at a Beverley Hills luxury hotel,” Charlamagne explained. “This is lobby, elevator music. This is the vibes when you sitting in the lobby of the SLS hotel having some drinks on a leather couch with the lights dimly lit. You got a suit on, no tie, first couple of buttons on your shirt open, some slippers on, loafers no socks. I’m never going to revisit this.”

Post Malone’s new album, Twelve Carat Toothache, will make a No. 2 debut on the Billboard 200. The album is Malone’s fourth straight top-five debut.
Toothache sold nearly 121,000 equivalent album units in the first week. Streaming equivalent units provided 98,000 of that number. Album sales brought in 21,000 and TEA units brought in 2,000. Twelve Carat Toothache was preceded by one Billboard Hot 100 top 10-charting single, The Weeknd’s “One Right Now.”
Reclaiming the top spot on the charts is Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti, with a 137,000 equivalent album unit week and becomes the first album of the year to exceed 1000,000 units in each of its first five weeks.
On June 7, Rolling Stone released its ranking of the 200 Greatest Hip Hop Albums of All Time and many fans oppose the list.
Since Hip-Hop is such a broad genre, the popular entertainment news publication limited the list to English language hip-hop only. They also said in cases of repeated albums from legendary catalogs such as OutKast or A Tribe Called Quest, we tended to go with the latter option.
Although many fans disagree with the order and the selections of the albums, Rolling Stone did attempt to cover the entire evolution of the hip-hop genre. The committee selected projects from the early stages of rap such as albums from Public Enemy, De La Soul, Eric B. and Rakim. It also captures records from the ’90s and ‘2000s with acts like Tupac, Biggie, Jay-Z, Nas, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West. The list also mentions tons of new era acts Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Polo G, Travis Scott, Mac Miller, and more.

“Def Jam, why you fucking up my releases, man?” he said in a video. “First of all, I love you Tunji. Tunji’s my guy, he ain’t got nothing to do with this. What the fuck is going on, man? I told Def Jam that I wanted to release my shit as a two-pack and I just found out that they’re releasing it as two singles at the same time.”

The Miami native has been working on his forthcoming thirteenth studio album which looks set to be packed with heavy hitters. DJ Khaled has been teasing features all week and on Sunday (May 29), revealed Lil Baby as the latest recruit for the project. He took to Instagram to share a clip of the pair inside his Miami home studio.
“It breaks my heart,” DJ Khaled said. “They ain’t believe in us, Lil Baby did!” He continued in the caption, ”Album mode it’s special, VERY SPECIAL! @wethebestmusic 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🆙 Win wit us or watch us win ! GOD DID! Bless up my brother @lilbaby”

HipHopDX – It’s hard to think of anything besides the tragic mass shooting event in Texas just days ago, which left 19 children and two adults dead. That’s precisely why Kanye West pushed back his highly anticipated YEEZY Gap drop and artists such as 21 Savage, Missy Elliott and more have spoken out to condemn school shootings and make desperate pleas for the reform of gun laws.
Despite the dark cloud hanging over our nation, the silver lining is the fact that this week’s edition of HipHopDX’s New Music Friday Albums coverage includes a blend of new and old-school Hip Hop releases, including new material from OG artists such as Eminem and Sean Paul.
Other key releases include fresh material from Westcoast artist Jayson Cash, Millyz, Jelly and Pi’erre Bourne, among others.
