The anticipation around Cardi B’s debut album has been scorching hot, so when breakthrough artist finally debuted the full album at a party late Thursday, she told the DJ to make sure the sound level was perfect.
“DJ, make it a little loud ’cause I don’t feel it in my bones,” she said after the second track played, while the DJ worked on the sound.
That’s when Cardi B’s silly and likable personality — which has helped her skyrocket on social media and the pop charts — shined brightly. She went into karaoke-mode, singing some of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You,” even getting the audience of music industry players in New York City to participate.
But the DJ needed two more minutes.
“Two minutes? What the (heck) I’m supposed to do with two minutes? I’m running out of jokes. I’m running out of entertainment,” she said, then reminding the crowd that she’s performing on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
