Cardi B Teases New Song That Samples Janet Jackson: ‘Y’all Like This Vibe for CB2?’
July 2, 2024

Cardi B has given more hope to the Bardi Gang in regards to her long-awaited sophomore album being released in 2024 by teasing another snippet on her Instagram Story on Monday night (July 1). The clip finds the Bronx native showcasing a softer side of her typically fiery raps, and the possible CB2 single samples Janet Jackson’s “Funny How Time Flies (When You’re Having Fun).”

“I hope that you on your way/ Crazy ’bout you,” she sings over Jackson’s beat. “Waiting on you, can’t wait to sit on that face/ Focused on you.” “Yall like this vibe for CB2?” Cardi captioned the video, which shows her in a car.

Fans seemed to be feeling the snippet in their reactions on X. “Love that song!! Belcalis you’ve done it again!! So ready for cb2,” one member of the Bardi Gang wrote. “Funny How Time Flies,” which appeared on Jackson’s 1986 blockbuster Control, was produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

 

Plenty of other artists have sampled it in the past, including Tinashe, SWV, The Lost Boyz and Camp Lo. Jackson’s track was released in the U.K. and Ireland, but was ruled ineligible to chart in the U.S., while other Control singles including “Nasty” and “When I Think of You” dominated commercially.

It’s been more than six years since Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy album arrived in April 2018. It topped the Billboard 200 with 255,000 album units sold in the first week and went on to win best rap album at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Peso Pluma’s ‘Éxodo’ Rules Top Latin Albums
July 2, 2024

Just three months after Peso Pluma’s Génesis clocked its 28th week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums, the Mexican singer is back atop the 50-album ranking with Éxodo, his fourth studio set which rises 41-1 on the July 6-dated list. The set also launches at No. 5 on the overall Billboard 200 list.

Éxodo debuted at No. 41 on Top Latin Albums (June 22-dated ranking) with only one day of activity, as the album was released June 20 via Double P, the last day of the tracking week. According to Luminate, the 24-song set (21 of which are collaborations), generated 64,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. during the 21-27 tracking week.

Streaming units comprise essentially all Éxodo’s second week of activity, with a little over 63,000 units deriving from that consumption method. That sum equates to 87.5 million on-demand official streams of the album’s 24 songs. Traditional album sales and track sales, meanwhile, supply the remaining 1,000. One unit equals one album sale, 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams for a song on the album.

Éxodo becomes just the second album by a regional Mexican act to land at the summit on Top Latin Albums in 2024, following Fuerza Régida’s Pa Las Baby’s y Belikeada, which led for three weeks between April and May. Beyond its coronation on Top Latin Albums, Éxodo likewise rallies 19-1 on Regional Mexican Albums, where Peso replaces himself at No. 1. The new set sends Génesis to No. 2 with a 4% dip in overall units, to 17,000.
