Cardi B Explains Why She Was ‘So Nervous’ to Record “Um Yea” With Offset

Cardi B and Offset aren’t afraid to mix business with pleasure. The newly engaged couple has teamed up on a number of records, such as “Lick,” “MotorSport,” and now “Um Yea,” from Quality Control’s new Control the Streets Vol. 1 compilation. Though the latter track is the most recent, Cardi revealed it marked her first-ever recording session with her husband-to-be—a moment that may have solidified their relationship.

“[T]his was the first time I ever got In the studio with @offsetyrn. I did LICK way before he featured on it, anyways i was soo nervous cause he was looking at me like ‘let’s see if she really be doing this shit on her own,’” the “Bodak Yellow” rapper wrote on Instagram. “[T]hen I got in the booth […] Had to show his ass why he had to put a ring on this finger.”

She clearly did something to impress him. 

Following weeks of engagement rumors, Offset proposed to Cardi in October during Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia. Cardi expressed her love for the Migos member shortly after, writing on Instagram: “Thank you for seeing the potential in me since you met me. For giving me advice molding me and loving me […] I can’t wait to spend FOREVAAAA with you. Lets make a lot shmoney and love together.”

The couple reportedly has another collaboration on deck. Back in September, Quavo told TMZ that Cardi would be featured on Migos’ upcoming album Culture 2, which is set to drop in early 2018.

Cardi took to Instagram to express her love for Offset following the proposal. 

People responded to the beautiful news on the very popular website Twitter.com. 

Rumors that the couple got engaged started to circulate not too long back. It began after the two went jewelry shopping in Atlanta back on August 22. 

An article from Real Cool Nation titled “Exclusive: Cardi B Just Got Engaged To Migos Rapper Offset — He Proposed Last Night!” was published and added fuel to the fire. The article turned out not to be true, well, not until now at least. 

Cardi is featured on Migos' new Culture 2 single “MotorSport” featuring Nicki Minaj. The track came out just hours prior to the proposal. Both Offset and Cardi B's 2017, even not taking into account this whole engagement​ business, has been spectacular. 

Cardi's summer anthem “Bodak Yellow” clenched the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 while Offset's group Migos dropped their second studio album Culture. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and reached platinum status back in July.

Congratulations are in order, so congratulations to Cardi B and Offset.
