Cardi B reassures fans she will be ‘working my ass off’ despite pregnancy
Cardi B announced she was expecting a baby with her partner Offset earlier this month.
Rapper Cardi B has reassured fans she will still be “working my ass off” despite cancelling a number of live shows due to her pregnancy.
Earlier this month, the 25-year-old, who is engaged to Migos rapper Offset, revealed she was expecting during a performance on Saturday Night Live.
In an Instagram video on Thursday, the star told fans her set at Broccoli City Festival in Washington DC this weekend will be her “last performance for a little while”, because “shorty keep growing”.
Now, Cardi B has moved to reassure fans she will still be working despite cancelling her live shows.
She tweeted to her near three million followers: “Okay so i might be off from doing performances for a couple of months but in the meantime imma be working my ass off.
“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.”
