Fans of Cardi B will be thrilled to know the Bronx rapper has dropped her first single following the release of debut album, Invasion of Privacy.
After leaking a few days early, the former reality star officially debuted “Money” this Tuesday. The following day, the wife and mother stopped by Beats 1 Radio to promote the new single, discuss a possible tour and address rumors of a secret collaboration with Beyoncé.
Last October, an engineer working for the “Bodak Yellow” artist hinted that a song featuring Queen Bey was in the works.

Unfortunately, Cardi revealed to host, Ebro Darden, that no such track exists, though she would, obviously, be open to working with Mrs. Carter in the future, according to HNHH.
Cardi also discussed the possibility of an upcoming tour, as her newborn, Kulture, prevented her from hitting the road with Bruno Mars.
While the 26-year-old has openly expressed her desire to have more children right away, she fully intends to embark on her own tour next year, with her team already working out the details.
Check out her new song, “Money,” below.
“There [are]certain things I want to do with my daughter,” the 26-year-old said. “I want to go to the beach with my baby. I want to take a stroll down the street with my baby. I just can’t because I don’t know who is next to me or who has certain intentions.”
The new-mom continued, “I don’t want to show my baby out to the public right now. I just want to protect her. I’m not mentally ready. Paparazzi is everywhere even in my a**hole. I would like to do normal things with my baby, but right now I have to keep it very low key.”
