GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING DIAMOND SELLING SUPERSTAR
RETURNS WITH FIRST NEW SINGLE OF 2022
LISTEN TO “HOT SHIT (FEAT. YE & LIL DURK)” HERE
GRAMMY® Award-winning, Diamond selling superstar Cardi B has announced today’s release of what’s set to be a song of the summer. “Hot Shit (Feat. Ye & Lil Durk)” is available now via Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. First announced with an epic teaser during last weekend’s 2022 BET Awards ceremony, the track sees three of the most powerful forces in modern rap team up for a hard-hitting single that’s sure to set summer kickbacks ablaze.
Produced by GRAMMY® Award nominee Tay Keith (Drake, Travis Scott, Lil Nas X), “Hot Shit” marks Cardi B’s first solo single in over a year, following the RIAA 2x platinum certified “Up,” which peaked at #1 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” upon its February 2021 release – her fifth chart-topping solo single, extending her Guinness World Record as the female rapper with the most #1 songs in “Hot 100” history and making history as the first female rap artist to earn two #1 singles unaccompanied by any other artist. A 2022 GRAMMY® Award nominee for “Best Rap Performance” (affirming Cardi B as the female rapper with the most ever nominations in that category), “Up” ultimately proved the top track by a female rap artist on both Billboard’s “Hot Rap Songs” and “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” charts for all of 2021. What’s more, the official music video for “Up” proved equally triumphant, earning such nominations as the BET Awards’ “Video of the Year,” the BET Hip Hop Awards’ “Best Hip Hop Video,” the Peoples Choices Awards’ “Music Video of 2021,” and the American Music Awards’ “Video of the Year,” while currently boasting over 230M individual views.
Thus far 2022 has seen Cardi B teaming up with Summer Walker and SZA for the worldwide hit single, “No Love (Extended Version),” marking her second collaboration with Walker following a guest appearance on 2021’s chart-topping album, Still Over It. More recently, Cardi B joined Kay Flock for “Shake It (Feat. Cardi B, Dougie B & Bory300),” hailed by Billboard as “a hip-hop banger” and named as one of their “50 Best Songs of 2022 So Far.”
Recently named as iconic lifestyle brand Playboy’s first ever Creative Director in Residence and founding member of Playboy’s creator-led platform, Cardi B is among the most significant musical artists of all time, regardless of genre, gender, or generation- all accomplished in less than a decade. Among her seemingly unstoppable list of accomplishments, she stands as the highest-certified female rapper of all time on the RIAA’s “Top Artists (Digital Singles)” ranking, the female rap artist with the most RIAA diamond certifications, and the only female rapper with multiple billion-streamers on Spotify, where her chart-topping, GRAMMY® Award-winning, 3x RIAA platinum certified debut album, Invasion of Privacy, remains the most streamed album by a female rap artist to date. All 13 tracks on Invasion of Privacy are now certified at least Platinum, and the smash 2018 album also includes the history-making Diamond (10x Platinum) “Bodak Yellow.” Her extensive list of awards, nominations, and high profile honors currently includes nine total GRAMMY® Award nominations, eight Billboard Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, five Spotify One Billion Streams Awards, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Awards, seven ASCAP Pop Music Awards, 23 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, six American Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, three iHeartRadio Titanium Awards, six BET Awards, 14 BET Hip Hop Awards, inclusion on TIME’s “TIME100: The 100 Most Influential People of 2018,” being named Entertainment Weekly’s 2018 “Entertainer of the Year” and Billboard’s 2020 “Woman of the Year,” along with countless other triumphs.
