Cardi B has a breakthrough hit with Bodak Yellow and the rapper said she’s ready to follow the single’s success with an album next month.

“I have an album coming. It will be dropping in October. I’m an October baby. I’m a little nervous to put the project out, but I think it’s going to be pretty good,” Cardi B, who turns 25 on October 11, said in a recent interview.

Cardi B said she’s nervous because there’s a lot of pressure on her after the success of Bodak Yellow, which is currently No 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, just under Taylor Swift’s comeback hit Look What You Made Me Do.

Bodak Yellow has become a No 1 hit on both the R’n’B and rap charts, and is one of the year’s most streamed songs. The New York-born rapper, who first gained attention on Instagram, appeared on the VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop before the song’s massive success.

The song has helped her become one of the few solo female acts to launch a major hit on the pop charts, which has recently been dominated by male performers for the last two years.

“It feels amazing and it’s overwhelming. It’s like, it fills me up with lot of happiness and a lot of joy. It’s just like unbelievable. I’ve been through so many things and I worked so hard for me to be here, and it’s like I’m finally here getting what I wanted, the respect from other artists and from everybody,” she said.

“I’m surprised Beyonce liked me. I met Beyonce. It’s like, Oh my God! That’s how it feels like. I can’t talk, I can’t breathe,” she added.

She listed Lil Kim, Trina and Remy Ma as some of her idols. Cardi B said she’s been finding time to treat herself in between studio recordings, concerts and photo shoots.

“The first splurge that I did I bought like an $80,000 watch but that’s because I’m a rapper. I need jewellery,” she said, laughing.
