The song was teased for the first time in December, and now Cardi B drops off her anticipated single, “Press.” On Thursday, she shared the artwork for the single, a black and white photo in vintage style featuring a naked Cardi in handcuffs that the paparazzi ushered in. The Grammy award-winning artist has delayed the release of “Press” and has been rolling out singles with Bruno Mars including “Money,” “Please Me,” and her latest hit “Clout” with her husband Offset.
“Press” has no characteristics as Cardi not only unleashes her irritation with the hounding media, but with anyone who has challenged her. The New York rapper, in true Cardi fashion, says she will take out anyone who poses a threat while boasting of living the rich life that many could only hope for. It is undeniable that Cardi is a polarizing figure in hip hop as her actions and past admissions have stayed off listeners, but she continues to grow in popularity. She recently said she is preparing a new record and would like to drop it before the end of the year, so “Press” may be the single that starts Cardi B’s next wave.
