Cardi B Promises New Music, Promotes Fashion Line in Hilarious 2019 Billboard Music Awards Acceptance Speech

By

Cardi B's got new music on the way. 

The "I Like It" rapper promised she's working on something new when she delivered her hilarious acceptance speech for top rap song at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday. 

"Man, I remember when I first hit the Billboard at No. 85 with 'Bodak Yellow.' I celebrated that the same way I celebrated all my No. 1s on the Hot 100," Cardi said before thanking her fans, prompting them to erupt in cheers. 

"Let me finish my speech, god damn it. I know y'all love me!" she yelled with a smile. The new mom then encouraged the crowd to spread the word about their favorite artists, big and small, to get them on the charts: "Be the biggest fan that you can be!"

"I want to thank Bardi Gang -- what's good? -- and my Fashion Nova collection is coming real soon. I'm going to have y'all looking good! You heard!" she shouted. "And I got more music on the way! They do anything for clout, woo!"

 

Cardi later took the stage again to accept Top 100 Song for "Girls Like You" with Maroon 5.

"Well, Maroon 5 ain't here, but I am! I remember when Maroon 5 hit me up to do this song, I was like, 'Bro, I'm five months pregnant, I can't even breathe!' But this record to me was so amazing, I was like, 'Oh, this is going to be a hit!' And now I sing this song to my daughter, because she's the girl that I need!" she gushed. 

"Thank you, Maroon 5, for this amazing record, broke records," she said, cackling. "What's good? What's really good, ya heard! I'm outta here, bye!"

ET got an exclusive sneak peek look at the rapper's new Fashion Nova x Cardi B line of affordable occasion and casual wear, as well as her latest campaign photo shoot with the brand. Cardi's daughter, Kulture, was on set with her for the day as the chart-topper reflected on mom guilt.

"I do experience that mom guilt, you know? She's here, but it makes me sad sometimes because it's like, 'Oh, my gosh, all that traveling,'" she explained. "I know her sleeping schedule is getting a little messed up. ... Every single time that she gets on an airplane, it's all good until the landing. She starts crying, and I just be feeling so sad because I know the pain, you know, when your ears pop."

"And sometimes I wake up in the morning and she's in my bed and I just want to cuddle and [I can't]," Cardi continued. "It is getting harder because she knows me. She recognizes more now, and that's, like, you can just tell she wants me to be there. Sometimes, when she sees me leaving, she looks up and goes, 'B----, where you going?'"

She also opened up to ET about her new album, explaining that she "can't really rap about the struggle" anymore. 

"I've passed the next level, so what am I going to talk about besides the glamour? But I feel like I've been in a lot of drama, I feel like people have thrown so many different crazy obstacles, a new chapter in my life, I've got a whole lot of sh*t to talk about," she expressed. "There's a lot of things that I don't be saying...  They say I complain too much. You know what? I'm just going to put it in my music then."

Cardi said she was unsure if Kulture would make an appearance on her upcoming album, but definitely wants to get in the studio with Beyonce. "Of course!" she said. "Who don't want that? You know what I'm saying?"
