A Weekend Win For Cardi B!

On Friday, Cardi released her debut album, and she had all the people buzzing. Me personally….I was worried. Earlier in the week, she dropped her third single, Be Careful, and the people were underwhelmed. Rightfully so, the song sounded under produced and not properly mixed or mastered. A week prior, Cardi took to her instagram, @IAmCardiB, to let people know she was finishing up her album. Left many people wondering, would her album be mixed, mastered and ready in time for the April 6 deadline?

On Friday, Cardi released her debut album, and she had all the people buzzing. Me personally….I was worried. Earlier in the week, she dropped her third single, Be Careful, and the people were underwhelmed. Rightfully so, the song sounded under produced and not properly mixed or mastered. A week prior, Cardi took to her instagram, @IAmCardiB, to let people know she was finishing up her album. Left many people wondering, would her album be mixed, mastered and ready in time for the April 6 deadline?

Answer: IT WAS!

Cardi B released her album to rave reviews. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received a score of 84. That’s one of the highest scores a female rap album has received. Only female rappers to have studio albums score higher are Missy Elliott and Rapsody. Publications rave at the versatility of her raps, and the fact that the album is just banger after banger. Flat out, the album rides! You know when people like Oprah takes to Instagram to congratulate you on your album, you must be doing something right!

As if that wasn’t enough, the early sales predictions for the album are 160,000 – 210,000, which would place Cardi B at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart. Those are solid numbers for anyone in this climate of album sales….and not selling for some.

Could the weekend get any better? Of course it does! Cardi launched the Season 43 of Saturday Night Live with a live performance of her 3 singles from her album. ‘Bodak Yellow‘ and ‘Bartier Cardi‘ performance was a bit dull, she kinda just stood there….but we later figured out why, as she sported a baby bump on “Be Careful“. Watch the performances below!

Queens – S01E01 – 1999

ABC launched it’s latest Primetime TV show, “Queens“. The show stars Brandy, Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez, and my favorite female rapper, Eve.

The show starts out giving you a brief look back at where the group started at and where they are present day. The writers do a good job with exploring each ladies personal journey, without putting too much in the first episode. However, comparing the show to other hot shows out right now, the acting leaves a bit to be crazy over. It kinda falls into the category of… “if there’s nothing on“, which right now isn’t the case, as the show is on the same time as the long awaited “Impeachment“.

Adele is coming…

Adele took to her social media outlets earlier today to announce that her new single, “Easy On Me“, will be released next week.

As big as Adele is, it be foolish to say nobody cares, but one thing that always has baffled me is why do we get over hyped for blue eyed soul? Don’t get me wrong, Adele has made so much great music in the past. Her body of work is solid and stands alone. She has earned her spot. But as black people, why do we give blue eyed soul such a high praise, but in return have a hard time promoting and supporting our own people, the originators of this sound?

Please don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the music of the blue eyed soul singers like Adele, Sam Smith, and Justin Timberlake. I just hope that the original soul singers can get that kind of love and respect as well.
