    Cardi B 'Really Upset' as She Claims Someone Mishandled Her New Single 'Up'

    The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker apologizes to her fans as they allegedly struggle to find the song on iTunes, claiming someone ‘dropped the ball’ which led to the glitch.

    Feb 8, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Cardi B apologized to her fans on Instagram. Shortly after her new single “Up” and music video came out, she uploaded an apologetic video, claiming there’s an issue with the release because someone “dropped the ball.” She wrote in the caption, “I’m sorry if you having problems finding the song iTunes.”
    “I’m really grateful for the music video, it’s turning out amazing,” the femcee said. “I’m really upset right now. The Devil has been working really f**king hard, let me tell you. Because, I know people are having troubles finding the song on iTunes. I don’t even think the music video is up on iTunes yet.”
    “I don’t know who dropped the ball and gave in or didn’t gave in or whatever to iTunes, but I’ve been working. I’ve been calling people on the label all night. I don’t know,” she continued. “Make sure you check it out on all streaming services. I think the song was turned in late to avoid leaks and stuff. ”

    It’s not the only hiccup with Cardi’s new music, which she claimed was inspired by the Chicago Music Drill. The song release was also marred by plagiarism accusations.

    Cardi was accused of ripping off New Jersey rap duo Mir Fontane and Mir Pesos over similarities between the hooks on her song and theirs. “@iamcardib we want my money,” the duo wrote on Twitter.
    She denied the allegations, “F**k the drama. RUN THE NUMBERS UP!!!” She then uploaded a video from her Instagram Live session where she previewed the song on August 7, a month before the duo released their music video.
    Fontane was quick to respond. He noted that, while their music video premiered in September, they previewed their song a month prior and “recorded it even earlier than that, Respectfully.” He also showed the video where they played a snippet of their song.
    Cardi, however, insisted, “Naaa im the type of person that avoids problems & court days. If i get inspired by a song I wouldn’t mind giving a percentage or couple of thousand but I never Hurd if this man.” She added, “I’m glad while I was recording this song in August I was playing wit the hook on this live.”
    She also pointed out that she’s not the producer so if someone had issues with a beat, she suggested the person “take it up” with the producer.

    Cardi B Locks Lips With Her Female Dancers in New Racy Music Video 'Up'

    Feb 6, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Cardi B has hailed her new song, “Up”, as “more cocky” compared to her “very sexual” hit, “WAP”.
    The 28-year-old rapper has dropped her first track of 2021 and the eye-popping music video, which is helmed by Tanu Muino, who flew from the Ukraine to shoot the promo.

    And she’s explained that she didn’t want to repeat herself and recreate another video and song like “WAP”, and insisted the goal was to create “something more gangster” and inspired by the Chicago Drill music scene.
    She told Zane Lowe on Apple Music: “I wanted to do something really different. It took me more than a month …we started rehearsing in December for this moment …The grind don’t stop. I thought that my last song was more sexy … I wanted to do something more gangster, more cocky.”
    “My last song was very sexual, very sexual. So I always want my next songs to be different than the one before. If a topic on one of my songs is money, the other topic I want it to be about something else. When I started rapping, when I first put music out, like my mixtape, it was all … This might sound crazy, but I got really inspired of Drill Chicago music. I was young, and I liked that and everything, so my mixtape was very all about gangster violence. If it’s up, then it’s stuck. That’s where I wanted to take it with this record.”
    “Up” is set to feature on Cardi’s follow-up to her 2018 critically-acclaimed debut studio album, “Invasion of Privacy”.

    Cardi B Reacts to Being Dragged Into DaniLeigh's 'Yellow Bone' Colorism Controversy

    WENN/Avalon

    ‘Every 6 months I gotta explain myself cause people can’t research,’ so the Grammy winner says on Twitter after her name is brought up in the wake of colorism controversy surrounding DaniLeigh.

    Jan 26, 2021
    AceShowbiz – In the wake of controversy surrounding DaniLeigh’s new song “Yellow Bone” that many deem promoting colorism, one name is being dragged. Twitter users thought it was unfair that DaniLeigh was being canceled while Cardi B was getting a free pass when they are both Dominican.
    To make their point, a video of Cardi during an interview resurfaced online. “I don’t even like people that I think is my race. Just because I like people that are different from me. I like people that are not like me,” the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker shared. “I like their culture. I already know my culture, so I want something new to me.”
    In response to that, one user wrote on the blue bird app, “Y’all canceled Dani Leigh for certain language but cardi B get a pass?? Make it make sense!!!” Echoing the sentiment, someone said, “My take on it is how y’all mad at Dani but support Cardi B. So if y’all gone cancel Dani cancel Cardi B. Two Hispanic women benefitting off black culture.”
    Another comment read, “dani leigh got dragged for pretending to be black now cardi has had to get her family photos out tk prove she’s afro latina loooo.” One person added, “I thought it was very clear that Cardi was not a black person. She is a Hispanic person with no black in her. The same way y’all dragged Dani, y’all need to do for Cardi.”

    Cardi caught wind of the discourse and quickly explained herself on Twitter. “Every 6 months I gotta explain myself cause people can’t research,” so the Grammy winner said on Monday, January 25. She went on sharing pictures of her family members who are all Afro-American. “It’s time for ya to pick up a book.Your ignorance at this point is a Choice,” she added in a separate tweet.

    Cardi B reacted to being dragged into DaniLeigh’s ‘Yellow Bone’ controversy.
    DaniLeigh, meanwhile, has issued a lengthy apology following the backlash. “Hey guys, it’s DaniLeigh. I just wanted to address what’s going on with me right now. I think it’s super important, because I definitely feel super misunderstood. My song ‘Yellow bone is what he want,’ I think people twisted it into thinking, like, I’m trying to bash another woman, another skin tone, that was never my intention. I wasn’t brought up like that, I never looked at my skin as a privilege. I never looked at me as ‘I’m better than somebody because of my skin tone,’ ” so she wrote in now-deleted Instagram post.
    “I see brown skin women flaunt their skin all the time in music, why can’t I talk about mine? If you look at me, I’m light-skinned, I’m a yellow bone. In my opinion, that’s just what I am. So, it wasn’t something that I looked at so deeply. Which, I can see why people will take it deeply, so I understand and I’m sorry that I wasn’t sensitive to the topic when I wrote my comment ‘why are you guys taking so personal?’ ” she added. “Because, it can be a personal thing to certain people, because colorist is a real thing so I do get it. But I’m not that. I’m not a colorist. I’m not a racist. I date a whole chocolate man. I have beautiful dark-skinned friends.”
    Concluding her message, she said, “Skin isn’t something I even see, it’s not something that I look at. I don’t live for the internet because people don’t know me. So that’s why I thought it was important to speak on, because you don’t know me, it’s like, let me tell you guys what I meant by this. Hopefully you guys can watch it with a open heart, a genuine mind, and try to get past it. I’m sorry, again, if I offended people — who are truly offended — I’m sorry. I’m going to just keep grinding, keep doing me, keep posting me. I hope everybody has a great Sunday. It’s all love.”

    Cardi B Spent $1 Million to Make 'WAP' Music Video

    The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker reveals her steamy music video which features the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Kylie Jenner, Normani, and Rosalia cost $1 million to make.

    Jan 15, 2021
    AceShowbiz – p > Cardi B has claimed it cost $1 million (£770,000) to shoot the music video for “WAP”.
    The promo for Cardi and fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s explicit 2020 hit – which saw the girls film at a mansion with real-life snakes with appearances from the likes of Kylie Jenner and Normani Kordei – cost the eye-watering sum, Cardi has told a fan on Twitter.
    First of all, the “Press” rapper shared the video for her 2017 major-label debut single, “Bodak Yellow”, cost just $15,000 (£11,000).
    She wrote, “Fun fact : Bodak yellow music video cost me 15 thousand dollars .I was in Dubai and I said ….I gotta fly picture (videographer) out here …BOOM BOOM BANG ! Ya know the rest . (sic)”
    A follower then replied, “girl that’s a lot. (sic)”

    However, the 28-year-old star responded with the cost of “WAP”, “Money”, and “Please Me”, which came to $1 million (£770,000), $400,000 (£300,000) and $900,000 (£660,424), respectively.
    She wrote back, “Naaaa honey ….Money cost 400K ,Please me Cost 900K ,Wap Cost a M ! (sic)”
    Meanwhile, Megan recently revealed she and Cardi were terrified of shooting with the reptiles.
    The pair were initially hesitant as neither of them had been around the creatures before, and the “Savage” hitmaker eventually “made friends” with one of them though her pal wasn’t so comfortable.
    She said, “OK, so what’s crazy is neither one of us had been around snakes before… I was like, ‘Friend, I don’t know if I can lay in snakes.’ ”
    “But Cardi B asked me to lay in some snakes, I’ve got to lay in the snakes for my girl.. I made friends with one who was on me the whole time. Cardi was so scared.”

    Cardi B and Zach Braff Put Their Online Shows on Pause Following Capitol Hill Riot

    WENN

    The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker and the former ‘Scrubs’ actor have decided not to release new episodes of their shows following the violent protest in U.S. Capitol.

    Jan 8, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Rapper Cardi B and actors Zach Braff and Donald Faison have scrapped plans to debut new episodes of their online series in the wake of the U.S. Capitol insurgence.
    The stars were among those expressing their shock and disgust via social media as they watched the violent mob of pro-Donald Trump supporters storm the Washington, D.C. building on Wednesday (06Jan21), in an attempted coup to prevent lawmakers from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s November election victory.
    As a result of the riots, Cardi took to Twitter on Thursday to announce a new instalment of her weekly Facebook Watch series, “Cardi Tries ____”, would not be premiering that day as originally planned.
    “Good morning everyone,” she began. “Due to all the chaos and craziness we decide to move this week episode of #carditries to next week.Sorry… (In) the mean time keep watching the reruns (sic)…”

    Meanwhile, Braff and Faison also pushed their latest chat on their “Fake Doctors, Real Friends” comedy podcast to next week, as they, like so many others, tried to come to terms with the attack on democracy.
    “No show today. We didn’t feel it was appropriate. Back on Tuesday,” Braff posted on social media, next to an image of newly-elected Georgia Senators Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock, who ousted the state’s two incumbent Republican representatives in Tuesday’s run-off elections, giving Democrats control of the Senate.
    On Wednesday afternoon, the actor admitted he was “speechless” at how easily the angry rioters were able to overrun the police and walk right into the Capitol, and hours later, Braff confessed he was resorting to alcohol to ease his anxiety, breaking his attempt to abstain from booze for the first month of 2021.
    Alongside a photo of a frosted martini glass, he wrote on his Instagram Story timeline, “Dry January on pause tonight.”

    Cardi B Defends Herself After Turning Off 'WAP' When She's Joined by Daughter Kulture

    Instagram

    The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker insists her music is for adults only when she’s called hypocrite after turning off her raunchy song when her little daughter joins her.

    Jan 6, 2021
    AceShowbiz – Cardi B has defended her decision not to let her two-year-old daughter listen to her controversial 2020 hit “WAP”.
    Trolls took aim at the rapper after a video of her turning off the raunchy track as Kulture entered the room went viral over the weekend (03Jan21).
    Some suggested there was a double standard at play and Cardi should not have released the track she recorded with Megan Thee Stallion if she wasn’t comfortable putting it on around the house.
    Cardi B took to social media on Monday (04Jan21) to fire back at critics and defend her parenting choices.

    “Ya needs to stop with this already…!” she posted. “I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults. Parents are responsible on what their children listen too or see… I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other parent should be (sic).”
    The former erotic dancer added, “There’s moms who are strippers. Pop pussy, twerk all night for entertainment does that mean they do it around their kids (sic)? No! Stop makin this a debate. (It’s) pretty much common sense.”
    Cardi B defended “WAP” numerous times in the past against criticism over the explicit lyrics.
    “I want to show people that you can do positive things, but you can also be yourself. I’m a very sexual person. I love sex, and I like to rap about it. I like to do it,” she said in an interview. “I admire my husband’s penis. I love p***y, and I love my body, and I want to be able to express that. I’m just a naughty girl, and I’m not hurting nobody because I love my p***y and want to rap about it.”
