Cardi B Hypes Upcoming Shakira Collaboration: ‘It Landed in My Lap’

Cardi B has dished out plenty of assists in her decorated career, but her upcoming collaboration holds an extra special meaning to her.

The Bronx native will check another item off her bucket list when she teams up with Shakira for a collab later this month. Cardi detailed how she ended up hopping on a track with the Colombian pop star during a recent interview with Million Dollaz Worth of Game.

“I always wanted to do a record with Shakira and it’s like, wow, it landed on my lap. It really landed on my lap, so I got a record coming out with her next week,” she said. “It’s like, ‘B—h, I’ll do whatever the f–k you want me to do, b—h. I’ll fly to Colombia.’ Like I’ll go over there right now.”

Cardi explained she caught up with Shakira during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year and revealed her sister won a talent show performing one of Shak’s songs when they were growing up. Shortly after, the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer’s team reached out.

“I saw her in Paris and I talked to her,” Cardi added. “I don’t like being in b—-s face about it. I’m like, ‘I have to, my sister she did a talent show when she was in first grade and she won doing your song! I just love you so much, like you’re a part of my life.’ And then her team reached out to me. I’m like, ‘Owww, Shakira, Shakira.’ I was gagging.”

The anticipated collaboration remains untitled and based on Cardi’s timeline, should arrive before March expires. The 31-year-old isn’t taking her foot off the gas pedal in 2024 — even though she doesn’t have her driver’s license.

Cardi lit the fuse with her Hot 100 top 40 hit “Like What (Freestyle)” earlier this month and should earn another lofty chart entry with the fiery “Enough (Miami)” next week. And while she hasn’t announced a title or release date for herlong-awaited sophomore album, the rapper has been hinting that it could arrive later this year.
