Cardi B Jokes About New Album Preview With 'The Cheetah Girls' Cover

Cardi B's debut album is on the way, yall. 

Cardi B

We're just a week and change away now from Cardi B unleashing one of the most-anticipated hip-hop debut albums of recent years, when she drops her Invasion of Privacy next Friday (Apr. 6).

Unsurprisingly, no one seems more excited for the LP's release than Cardi herself, who took to Instagram last night to offer fans "a little preview of what you guys gonna get" -- which, apparently, includes a cover of The Cheetah Girls.

The Cheetah Girls, for Cardi fans over the age of 30, was a 2003 Disney Channel movie produced by Whitney Houston and starring Raven-Symoné, as one of the four teenage girls in the titular vocal group. "Cinderella" was one of the quartet's signature songs -- a cover of a song by defunct girl group i5 -- and in real life was released as the first single off the TV film's soundtrack.

Cardi is evidently a fan, as the Instagram "preview" of her new album features her singing "Cinderella" a capella -- with various off-camera backing vocalists offering support through their laughter. She has to mumble over some of the harder-to-remember lyrics, but otherwise offers an emotional (if clealry tongue-in-cheek) rendition of the Disney-pop favorite.

Will "Cinderella" actually appear on Invasion of Privacy? Will The Cheetah Girls be a special guest on the album? Is Cardi prepping us for a set of her trading bars for vocal runs? Or -- most likely -- is she just having a laugh with some friends while paying tribute to an underrated 21st century girl group jam?

We'll have to wait till April 6 to find out. In the meantime, watch Cheetah Cardi -- and refresh yourself on the Girls' original -- below.

Charlottesville Killer Receives Life Sentence Plus 419 Years

James Alex Fields Jr will spend the rest of his life behind bars for driving his car into a crowd of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va., which injured many and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

According to reports, Judge Richard Moore sentenced the 22-year-old white supremacist to life in prison plus 419 years. Fields, who reportedly had a picture of Adolf Hitler framed by his bed, drove from Ohio to attend the 2017 Unite The Right Rally with fellow racists and neo-Nazi's to protest the removal of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee statue.

The event also drew Heyer and other counter-protestors who marched against white nationalism. The violence forced local authorities to declare an unlawful assembly and begin the process of demobilizing everyone. Later on the same day, Fields drove his car into a crowd killing Heyer and hurting others.

The event caused already bubbling racial tensions in America to spill over when during a press conference Donald Trump blamed "both sides" for the turmoil.

DMX Is Cleared In The Case Of A 'Stolen' Corvette

Rapper DMX will reportedly not face any charges after it was believed his was driving a “stolen” vehicle back in May.

The rapper reportedly left a Los Angeles restaurant in another person’s car, after the valet accidentally gave him and his entourage the wrong set of keys. The valet mix-up created a potential issue for X, as authorities believed that driving a stolen vehicle was grounds for a probation violation as it pertained to his tax evasion case. Police reportedly were able to retrieve the vehicle, and no one was arrested.

“DMX met with his probation officer and everything is fine,” the MC’s attorney, Murray Richman, told TMZ. “We're told the rapper's in the clear as far as a potential probation violation goes.”

As far as his professional life goes, DMX reportedly joined the cast of Chronicle Of A Serial Killer back in April. He also gave a rousing sermon at Kanye West’s Sunday Service performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the spring.

“Doors that were once closed are now open for me,” he said. “I am God’s favorite child…I have supernatural increases and promotion. Like the restoration of everything the devil has stolen from me. This is the day, time, and moment for me to experience the free grace of God.”

Bhad Bhabie Tells Jermaine Dupri To "Suck [Her] D**k" After Female Rapper Comments

Bhad Bhabie is commenting on the controversial comments uttered by Jermaine Dupri.

A cluster of female rappers from Cardi B, to Rapsody, to Doja Cat commented on the above sentiments, stating that there are many female rappers who don’t rap about their bodies. The latest voice to chime in is none other than the young Floridian.

In a now-deleted Instagram Story post, the 16-year-old wrote, “Jermaine Dupri can suck my d**k. Been like 10 years since bow wow. Sit down grandpa."

Last week, the producer and artist was asked by People about the latest wave of female rappers taking over the charts. He stated that while he appreciates them, he believes they’re “all rapping about the same thing.”

“I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper,” he said. “For me, it’s like strippers rapping. As far as rap goes, I’m not getting who is the best rapper.” In a video, Cardi stated the reason why she raps about her body, and then praised artists like Tierra Whack, Kamaiyah and CHIKA for bringing something different to the game.
