During Memorable iHeartRadio Acceptance Speech, Cardi B Reveals Debut Album Is Coming

Cardi B made the most of her time at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night. After kicking off the show by performing a medley of hits, she won the award for Best New Artist and delivered a thoroughly entertaining acceptance speech.

On stage with the iHeartRadio award in hand, Cardi first acknowledged her team, her family, and Offset, before thanking her fans, “because even when I'm wrong, they be like, 'She still right.'” With a laugh, she added, “I want to thank my haters, too, because they be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it. But it benefits me!”

Then Cardi dropped a bomb: “My album will be coming in April. Yessir, April. Stay tuned motherf—. Owww.”

The update comes as a relief for fans who have been waiting for a debut album from Cardi for months. She's previously explained that she didn't want to rush the project and would take her time until everything's right.

“Every single time I think I got all the ten songs I’m like, I’m buggin,” she told The Breakfast Club in September. “These ain’t it. It’s just like, damn I’m competing with myself. I’m competing with the goddamn No. 2 record [on the Billboard Hot 100] and stuff.”

As recently as January, Cardi was seen in the studio putting finishing touches on the album.

While you wait for April to arrive finally, you can see a clip from her opening performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards below.
