Two queens together! Something we could only imagine in our dreams. Singer, songwriter, and Diva, Mariah Carey next to the rapper and also Diva Cardi B.

They started talking about Cardi B's new album, “You probably want to talk about your new album and we can get into that,” Mariah asked. “How are you feeling about it?

“I feel like I’m missing some songs,” Cardi told Mariah. “Everybody’s rushing me to put it out, but I don’t know if it’s the right time. When I do interviews, I like to be in people’s faces. I hate Zoom meetings. They’re just so weird. I like to do listening parties. You can’t even tour. That sh*t’s wack as f*ck.” Mariah Carey gave her advice about this, telling her to take her own time so this can be the best album she can give the audience.


Later, Carey explained that her favorite song from Cardi B is 'Be Careful' and asked the rapper if she has any other song resembling that one in the newest album. “I do have a song like ‘Be Careful,’ but I think it’s more personal. People were saying, ‘You need to be softer. You need to talk more about yourself.’ And I was telling them that it’s really hard for me to do love records and express myself like that because I never do that. I don’t talk about love and sh*t. Cardi continued, “People always have crazy expectations, especially when it comes to female rap. It’s not like it’s a competition, but people are always comparing and comparing and comparing. It’s almost like they want to see you fail. I hate the feeling when I don’t do something really good. So I want my sh*t to be good because my last album did so well, and if this one doesn’t do well, I’m going to feel really sad.”

Maria Carey who is now 50 years old and obviously has more time as a celebrity asked Cardi B about her relationships with other artists. ‘A lot of celebrities invite me to places, but I’m really shy. We’re doing this over the phone, but if it was in person, I wouldn’t be able to look you in the eyes. That’s how nervous I get around celebrities. ‘And sometimes my head starts talking, like, “Oh my gosh, I look stupid, I feel stupid, I’m dumb.”

I’ve always had the same friends. I’m very loyal. If I’m your friend, I’m going to always ride hard for you,’ the WAP rapper stated. ‘But if you don’t ride hard for me or you do some funny s**t, I’m going to feel a certain type of way.’ She added: ‘My husband always tries to tell me, “You can’t think like that because you’ve got to network and this is not real life. You got to understand that.”‘

To this, Mariah replied ‘We’re all just people, but this business can make certain celebrities into different people. ‘I expect everybody to be real with me."

It seems both singers think the same way, probably they have bonded with these statements?
