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.
