Cardi B returns with dominant, fiery new single and video, “Up”

Cardi B is back. Honestly, at this point, need we really say more?

Alright, she explains the track’s differing direction from last year’s mega-hit “WAP” by stating her desire to return to her Chicago drill roots: “I was young, and I liked that and everything, so my [debut] mixtape was very all about gangster violence. If it’s up, then it’s stuck, and that’s where I wanted to take it with this record.

Honestly, beyond that, we think the song, and its (of course) gloriously in-your-face video speak for themselves. Check it out below, and stay tuned for more from Cardi B very soon, with her sophomore album reportedly due this year.
