Cardi B is one of the biggest artists in the world right now and that has been the case since 2017. She is venturing into films as well as her next project is appearing in “Fast and Furious 9.”
Back in November 2019, Vin Diesel posted a video of himself and Cardi on set of the film to his Instagram feed, which started to generate a lot of excitement. Fast 9 was originally set to be out in April 2020 but that quickly changed after the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in March.
Cardi’s Character In The Film To Be Tied To Vin Diesel’s Character
Cardi is known for her comedy so it will definitely be interesting to see how she does in this film. The last Fast and Furious film was released back in 2017, which was “The Fate Of The Furious.” That generated $1.236 billion worldwide.
Since then, the anticipation was real for Fast 9 but sadly, the pandemic put a dent in that. The new date for the release at this point is May 28, 2021. Last March, Diesel also revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that his daughter suggested that Cardi be in this film.
Cardi Appeared In ‘Hustlers’ Film In 2019
“Fast and Furious 9” isn’t the only major movie that Cardi has been in. In 2019, she appeared in “Hustlers” along with Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, Lizzo, and Constance Wu. They played the role of dancers who work at a strip club in New York City in 2007-2008.
There, they lived during the huge recession that was occurring in the US at the time. In the film, these ladies scammed men out of their money, especially on credit cards. In the end, they all faced prison time for their crimes. Many were impressed with Cardi’s role on the big screen.
Cardi Hit Another Home Run With New ‘Up’ Single
In August, Cardi won big as she released her “WAP” single featuring Megan Thee Stallion. That record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It returned to that position again after a few weeks of BTS‘ “Dynamite” hitting the top spot. WAP is currently 3x platinum in the US.
Last week, Cardi released her first single of 2021 which is “Up.” This record received high praise as well as fans enjoyed the music video, too. This week, it’s expected by fans to hit the top spot on the Hot 100.
Cardi’s Album Is Expected To Arrive In 2021
With the massive success of “WAP” and “Up,” fans of Cardi believe that her sophomore album will finally be released sometime this year. Cardi appeared on Zane Lowe’s radio show on Apple Music last week and explained why the album has taken so long to be released. It was originally supposed to be out in 2020 but she felt that she didn’t have the right songs at the time. Cardi believes that the album has to be out in 2021, though.
“I really wanted to put out an album last year, but it was like, “I feel like I don’t have the right songs. I have recorded so many songs. I think I’ve got like 50 songs recorded, and I’m just still not satisfied. If I’m not satisfied, I’m just not satisfied, but I really want to put out an album this year. I feel like I have no choice now. Now, I feel like I exceeded my limit of holding. I just need to stop with the fear.”
