Cardi B Says She's Putting Out a New Album This Year

Cardi B is coming off of a record-breaking 2018, but that doesn't mean she's ready to slow down and take a breather. On Tuesday (Jan. 1), the rapper went live on Instagram and confirmed that she plans on putting out a new album this year.

"Of course it's going to be an album in 2019," she said, responding to a fan asking about the status of the new record.

Cardi also said she wants to release the album around the same time she released Invasion of Privacy last year --which would mean April-- but she added that she's not sure that'll be feasible due to her schedule.

"Hopefully I can get my album done around the same time that Invasion of Privacy came out," she said. "I don't know how possible that's gonna to be because I feel like I'm gonna be extremely, extremely busy."

In addition to a new album, 2019 will also reportedly see the release of a deluxe version of Invasion of Privacy.
