The formal follow-up to her 2020 mega-hit “WAP,” Cardi B returns with her first single of 2021, “Up.”
“My last song was very sexual, so I always want my next songs to be different than the one before,” Cardi said to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about the track. “When I started rapping, when I first put music out… I got really inspired of Drill Chicago music. I was young, and I liked that and everything, so my mixtape was very all about gangster violence. If it’s up, then it’s stuck. That’s where I wanted to take it with this record.”
With a matching set of visuals, naturally, “Up” can be heard below.
