Cardi B recently announced during an Instagram Live video on New Year’s Day that she’s planning to drop a new album, the follow-up to her debut hit Invasion of Privacy.

“Of course it’s gonna be an album in 2019,” Cardi said. “Hopefully I could get my album done around the same time that Invasion of Privacy came out, but I don’t know how possible that’s going to be because I feel like I’m going to be extremely, extremely busy.” The rapper’s album debuted in April 2018 at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200, and an impressive thirteen songs from the project attained platinum or gold status.

Since the release of that album, in 2018 Cardi became a mom and announced her separation from her husband Offset.
