Cardi B Drops New Single 'Up'
Cardi B has finally followed up her 2020 raunchy summer hit "WAP" with a slightly less graphic, but just as killer new single "Up," along with its own Tanu Muino-directed video.

Her first release of the year clearly has Cardi mulling over her new music for her next album. As she mentioned in conversation yesterday (February 4) with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, she had planned to put out a record last year — but got held up by her own perfectionism.

"I have recorded so many songs. I think I've got like 50 songs recorded, and I'm just still not satisfied," she said. "If I'm not satisfied, I'm just not satisfied, but I really want to put out an album this year. I feel like I have no choice now. Now, I feel like I exceeded my limit of holding. I just need to stop with the fear."

Cardi added: "Like, music is in a different stage right now. Because I don't even be knowing what should be like the base of my album sometimes. Should most of my songs be freaky songs? Most of my songs should be about tricking? I've got my sensitive songs and stuff, and it's just like, 'Are they enough? Are they explaining my feelings enough?'"

Cardi hopes to put out a new album sometime this year, though she hasn't shared many details about the forthcoming release. Until then, you can watch her new video for "Up" below, where you can also listen to Lowe's recent conversation with Cardi.
