Cardi B and Bruno Mars dropped their new track “Please Me” on Friday. Debuting just after Valentine’s Day, the song is all about sexy time.
“Please me, baby/Turn around and just tease me, baby/You know what I want and what I need, baby,” Mars croons in the chorus.
“Lollipoppin’ (poppin’)/ twerkin’ in some J’s (ooh)/On the dance floor (uh-huh)/No panties in the way (nope)/,” the recent Grammy winner raps. “I take my time with it (ow)/ Bring you close to me (ow)/Don’t want no young dumb s–t/Better f–k me like we listenin’ to Jodeci.”
She then adds, “I was tryin’ to lay low (low)/Takin’ it slow (slow)/When I’m f–kin’ again (ayy)/Gotta celebrate/Do your man look good?/Better put him away/ If you can’t sweat the weave out, you shouldn’t even be out/Dinner reservations like the p—y you goin’ [to] eat out.”

Rapper Cardi B took the time out her busy schedule to clap back at the haters who have so much shit to say about her recent Grammy win.
Since deleted Instagram video on Monday afternooon (Feb. 11). “It’s not my style to put people down to uplift somebody else. I’ve been taking a lot of shit today and I saw a lot of bullshit last night. I’m sick of this shit. I worked hard for my motherfucking album,” she says in the video. “I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everyone was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed.’ Now this year’s a fucking problem? My album went two-times platinum. Every chart that there was, my album was top 10. No. 1 album as well. I fucking worked my ass off and locked myself in the studio for three months. Didn’t go to sleep in my own bed sometime for four days straight pregnant!” The rapper deleted her IG account for now.
On Monday (Feb. 11), BET issued a statement apologizing to Nicki Minaj for a tweet that shaded her while simultaneously celebrating Cardi B’s Grammy win for best rap album.
“Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront,” the since-deleted tweet from the network read, redirecting to an article on BET.com about Cardi’s award.
Just a few weeks ago the network announced both Minaj and Cardi would headline concerts for the four-day event built around the network’s annual awards show. As of Monday afternoon, BET still listed Minaj and Lil Wayne on its festival lineup (though it does include a disclaimer at the bottom: “*talent subject to change”).
The loss of Minaj and her labelmates are a massive blow for the event, set for June 20-23 at L.A. Live, which has recently struggled to recapture the buzz it had during its infancy
BET issued a statement apologizing to the rapper. It reads in full:
“BET loves Nicki Minaj. We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward. Nicki has paved the way for so many performers and has solidified her place as one of the most powerful figures in the music industry.
Unfortunately, the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values. We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.
We are also conducting an internal audit to assure these types of posts are not published again. We have apologized to Nicki and her team. The post has been removed and we have taken additional appropriate action. We understand Nicki’s position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.
Finally, we apologize to all of her fans. This should have never happened.”

Cardi B made history at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards — and understandably got pretty emotional.
She won the best rap album award for her debut “Invasion of Privacy,” beating out Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T, Travis Scott, and the late Mac Miller, making her the first solo woman to do so. During her speech, the rapper, taking the stage with Offset, teared up while talking about her pregnancy and daughter, who was born this past July.
“I want to thank my daughter,” she said. “I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter. It’s because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete, like three songs that I was for sure having. And then you know, you know how it was, we was like, we have to get this album done so I could still do videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights.”
Cardi admitted she was nervous, joking when she took the stage, “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed.”
While Cardi’s the first woman to win the award for a solo act, Lauryn Hill did win best rap album as part of hip-hop group Fugees (also made up of Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel) in 1997.
Cardi is nominated for record of the year and album of the year, and also scored a nod for rap performance. She was on the Grammys stage earlier on Sunday for a rousing rendition of her single “Money.”
Best Rap Album For albums containing at least 51% playing time of new rap recordings.
