How do you follow up a No. 1 hit like “Bodak Yellow”? With a Beyoncé feature!
Rumor has it that Cardi B has enlisted Queen Bey for the highly-anticipated follow-up to her Hot 100 smash, which is reportedly titled “Wet.” Cardi’s engineer Ashby revealed the news by posting a series of Instagram Stories (via Hip Hop-N-More). One of them features vocals that are titled “Cardi B ft. Beyoncé Demo Wet.” Under the story, Ashby added: “Wow this feature is big.”
Cardi met up with Beyoncé and JAY-Z at the Made in America festival back in September, but has been guarded about their talks. “They just said hi,” she told “The Breakfast Club.” “No, they said a lot of other beautiful stuff. I don’t want to air stuff like that out, but I met her. I met Beyoncé, y’all! It was real. It wasn’t Photoshopped!”

Made In America Moments… —————————————————–This was one of my favorite MIA moments. I actually caught a posed photo similar to the one that was posted. I just found this one to be way more interesting. This pic is an example of taking full advantage of an opportunity & platform you've been given. No excuses. Just grinding and determination. Ambition, focus and hard work. Knowing where Cardi has come from, to then reach a plateau of destroying the Made in America Festival stage is pretty Epic. Most people aren't fortunate enough to meet The entertainers, actors, athletes or anyone they admire, look up to, idolize or respect. The smile on Cardi's face is a genuine and says it all. It's actually the smile I see when anyone meets the queen. And then when you come to meet that person and they happen to be the coolest and sweetest ever, it amplifies your admiration for them 100 times over. Say what you want but Cardi B represents the struggle. The Grind. How to turn your negative into a positive. Her personality proves she's a star. Anyway, one of my fav moments this past wknd.
During an interview with the Associated Press, Bardi added: “I’m surprised Beyoncé liked me. Ah! I met Beyoncé!”
Cardi also reflected on the “pressure” surrounding her debut album. “I’m a little nervous to put the project out but I think it’s gonna do pretty good,” she said. “It’s a lot of pressure on me. Everybody is waiting to see what I’m gonna have next and it’s like, I hope people love it. But I have confidence. I’m really good.”
The Beyoncé collaboration could end up on Cardi’s forthcoming debut album, which was initially set for release this month. It has since been pushed back.
