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!

“Super Freaky Girl” gets moved to the Pop Categories at the Grammys… And Nicki “isn’t mad”

According to TheHollywoodReporter,

Minaj originally submitted the track — which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in August — to the rap categories at the Grammys, but the decision was overturned by the Recording Academy’s rap committee, according to a source. That group determined that Minaj’s playful and pop-sounding song sampling Rick James’ 1981 classic “Super Freak” should compete for best pop solo performance instead of rap awards.

TheHollywoodreporter

In my honest opinion, this was the right move! The song was produced by a Pop producer and it was also promoted as a Pop song. This isn’t an attack on Nicki Minaj, as it has happened across all genres. Some of the more notable people to have this happen would be Kacey Musgraves, The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea, Lil Nas X and so many more.

However, Nicki took to twitter to share her thoughts, per usual:

At this time, Big Energy by Latto, hasn’t been announced which category it will be in. It will likely be in the running for the same Pop awards, based on the fact that Dr. Luke also produced it and the Remix featured Mariah Carey’s rendition of Fantasy, which was also nominated in the Pop category.
