After a week of teasing, Cardi B's new song, "Hot S***," arrived on Friday.
Cardi teamed up with Kanye West and Lil Durk for the record, which the female rapper previously described as "masculine" and "great for the clubs."
In typical Cardi fashion, the track oozes confidence as she raps the chorus, "Oof (Oof), checks comin' fast, I'm like swoosh (Swoosh) / Ooh (Ooh), give 'em to them straight, hundred proof (Proof) / I thought I killed you hoes before, it must be déjà vu /It's either that or I'm catchin' body, number two."
Cardi first teased "Hot S***" on Sunday, June 26, then, the next day, she revealed that Ye and Lil Durk would be joining her on the record.
"Hot S***" is Cardi's first single of 2022, but it almost didn't arrive as planned. In an Instagram Live on June 28, she expressed that she wanted to cancel the song release because the music video to assist the track wasn't ready. She added that "a lot of people have been dropping the ball for the past two months." Ultimately, Cardi decided to "push" and put the song out for her fans anyway.
"Hot S***" is expected to appear on Cardi's long-awaited sophomore album, the follow up to 2018's Invasion of Privacy.
