Four years after releasing her debut studio album Invasion of Privacy, Cardi B returns with new single “Hot Shit” featuring Ye and Lil Durk.
The gloves are off on new Cardi B single “Hot Shit.” First teasing the song last Sunday (June 28), Cardi revealed that “Hot Shit” would feature Chicago natives Ye and Lil Durk. Starting July off with a bang, “Hot Shit” makes Cardi’s first single since “Up” last in 2021 and Megan Thee Stallion-assisted “WAP” in 2020.
Throughout the week, Cardi took to social media to post “Hot Shit” teasers.

“I will not be releasing a music video with this song,” she told viewers. “I just don’t feel like doing too much this time around. I’m just exhausted with everybody [and] I’m so tired of people not doing their f**king job correctly.”
She also said that “Hot Shit” would be unlike anything fans had heard from her before.
“It’s something that I feel like y’all haven’t heard from me before,” she added. “I feel like people is expecting a lot of sl*tness and blah blah blah. Y’all keep talking I keep making TikTok records and this is definitely not that. It’s a fun great record. It’s masculine [and] it’s great for the clubs. It’s great for the b**ches.”
Back in January, Ye confirmed on Hollywood Unlocked that he had recorded a verse for Cardi.
“I always believed in her since she was on [Love & Hip-Hop], period,” he said during the interview.
While Cardi is still prepping her sophomore album, she’s held fans over with a handful of collaborations, including “Wild Side” with Normani, Summer Walker and SZA‘s “No Love” remix, and Kay Flock‘s “Shake It” remix with Dougie B and Bory3000.
