Cardi B’s impending motherhood means she won’t be in Houston next month as planned.
The chart-topping rapper, who was set to perform at Jmblya in Houston, Austin and Dallas, is no longer on the bill.
Replacing Cardi B is Young Thug, known for the singles “Stoner,” “Best Friend” and “Pick Up the Phone.”
“Okay so i might be off from doing performances for a couple of months but in the meantime imma be working my ass off.” Cardi B wrote early Thursday on Twitter. “So many songs, features to do. Working on a lot of deals i sign up for and most importantly nesting. Im already overwhelmed from the new work.”
Cardi B is one of the biggest breakout stars of the past year, so the news has to be disappointing for a lot of people.
She scored a No. 1 single with “Bodak Yellow” and teamed up with Bruno Mars for the “Finesse (Remix).” Her debut album, “Invasion of Privacy,” topped the Billboard 200 last month.
Jmblya is May 6 in Houston at Sam Houston Race Park. The lineup includes J. Cole, Migos and Kevin Gates.
Also on the bill are Playboi Carti, Trippie Redd, Ski Mask The Slump God, Cozz, Killy and Jack Harlow. Locals Bun B, Trae Tha Truth and DJ Mr. Rogers will be “special guests.”
Tickets are still available.
