Cardi B Plans Lil Kim Collaboration For New Album: “I Want This To Be Her Moment”
This week, Cardi B returns to the scene with “Hot Shit,” her first single of the year featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk. The song is certainly destined to be a summertime hit, but it also appears to be the clearest sign yet that her Grammy-winning first album’s follow-up will be released soon.
Cardi B said that she’s currently working on securing a feature from Lil Kim during a recent interview with Hot97. Although Cardi frequently cites Kim as an inspiration, the Bronx performer hopes that their combined talents will create a moment that will have a lasting cultural impact.
“I Want Lil’ Kim On My Album”
“I even hit her up, like, I want Lil’ Kim on my album,” she said. “I do have a song that I think, ‘Aight she’s good for it,’ but then I’m also debating, like, on another song. Because I kinda want her on this one, too,” she added, adding that she wants something similar to “Aunt Dot” out of Lil Kim. “But then I’m kinda debating, is that gonna be like a little bit outdated? How’s it gonna be? … And also, like, I just want the song I do with her, I want it to be like a super, like, great comeback. I just don’t want to put her on my album on a song and it’s like, ‘Cool, yeah, she had a Lil’ Kim feature.’ I want this to be like her insane…her moment.”
Cardi clarified that although she has not yet contacted Kim, she does have a concept of how she hopes the renowned rapper will approach the song. She must first choose the track she wants Lil Kim to join.
Cardi expressed her hope that the Cardi x Kim collaboration would be as well-received as her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP.” Even if they were to work with Meg once more, she said, it would have to “make sense.”
“If I was to do another song with Megan, I have to really make sure I do three or four songs and it’s gonna make sense because ‘WAP’ was just such a big moment,” Cardi stated. “It just has to be, ‘Oh my god, they’re a great duo.’ And that’s what I really want with Kim, like something that just makes sense.”
