On November 19, Cardi got real with her Twitter followers and explained why the album — which she originally said was set for an October release — is still MIA. For her, urgency doesn't mean a thing when perfection is what she's after.
Though she's recorded plenty for what will eventually serve as her full-length debut, Cardi is more concerned with making sure she's putting out tracks that feel right — and the ones she's currently working with aren't making the grade.
"I have songs stashed up," she tweeted. "I just don’t think they qualified for my album. Sometimes i think is ready sometimes i think it’s not so I’m going to take my time till it’s right."
