From Bartier Cardi to Motorsport, Cardi B has been known to lovingly name-drop her fiancé, the Migos rapper Offset, in her lyrics.
On her new song Be Careful, a new track from her forthcoming album Invasion of Privacy (out April 6), Offset also seems to make an appearance — except this time, instead of Cardi praising him, she’s making threats.
While Cardi doesn’t mention Offset by name like her previous releases, Be Careful appears to reference the cheating rumors that emerged last September after his iCloud account was hacked and videos leaked showing him with another woman.
Almost the entirety of Be Careful is dedicated to the unnamed cheater. “Be careful with me, do you know what you’re doing? Whose feelings that you’re hurting and bruising? You gon’ gain the whole world but is it worth the girl that you’re losing?” she sings on the chorus. “Yeah, it’s not a threat, it’s a warning.”
Cardi confirmed the cheating rumors in her April cover story for Cosmopolitan, taking a defiant stance on her decision to stay with Offset.
“I know I could get any man I want — any basketball player, football player,” she said. “But I want to work out my (expletive) with my man, and I don’t got to explain why … It’s not right, what he (expletive) did — but people don’t know what I did, ’cause I ain’t no angel.”
Cardi and Offset first emerged as a couple in April 2017, when Cardi confirmed they were seeing each other in an interview. The pair got engaged in October after Offset proposed to Cardi onstage during an appearance in Philadelphia.
