More than five months after she first teased the song to her Instagram followers, Cardi B has finally unleashed her new single “Press”. The hard-hitting song finds the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker taking shots at the media and rapping about how she isn’t bothered by others who judge her.
“Bi-bi-b****s be pressed/ They knew how I’m coming for yo b***h in the flesh,” she raps on the song that was produced by KeY Wane and Slade Da Monsta. “Who the f**k she gon’ check? She be talking that s**t, talkin’ out of her neck/ Put blood on her dress. b****s be mad when they see Cardi step in the spot/ Said that you ’bout it, we know that you’re not/ I’ma pull up on b***es as soon as I drop.”
Cardi first teased the song back in December 2018, when she posted on Instagram a video of her rapping to the tune in a recording studio. Earlier this week, she further teased the release by sharing a photo of her recreating serial killer and prostitute Ailen Wuornos’ infamous mugshot.
“Press” will likely be included on Cardi’s forthcoming sophomore album, which she hopes will be released before 2020. “I’m starting to prepare myself now because I’m really trying to put out an album for this year,” she previously said. “My last album, ‘Invasion of Privacy’, it just went three times platinum, so now it’s just like, ‘Aw snap. It’s big pressure on me.’ It’s like, ‘Aw snap, what the hell am I going to come up with?’ ”
Hinting that she might be working with some not-so-popular musicians, the female emcee continued, “There’s two boys that I met with, well two guys, two men, they’re not big artists. They’re actually… they aren’t really well known, but they’re amazing artists and I really want to put them on my album. Y’all will find out in October who they are. I’m not saying that my album is out in October, but you will see why.”
