The singer stated that her latest project would touch on important and significant experiences in her life, including surviving assault. "I never saw myself as a victim but have survived assault and I thought hiding it made me strong. But as I’ve watched all these amazing strong women speak on their experiences I found courage in speaking on my story," she said.  "This record is for all of us. We are the new breed. We are strong, unapologetic and the future is female."

The song comes on the heels of Goldlink's "Justine's Interlude," which appeared to discuss Justine Skye's allegations of domestic abuse against Sheck Wes.

Meek Mill Responds To Comedian Michael Rapaport's Critique

While Meek Mill's pregame performance at the NBA All-Star game on Sunday (Feb. 17) may have been praised by many on Twitter, there was one person who was not impressed by the Philadelphia rapper's appearance. Comedian/actor Michael Rapaport used his Twitter account to critique Mill, but the latter didn't hold his tongue back either.

"Aye @michaelrapaport don't ever use the word trash when you speaking on nothing from our culture unless you tryna get trashed," Meek wrote. "#2 who gave you authorization to be speaking on us? #3 what you charging now?"

— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) February 18, 2019

A couple of tweets after his first response to Rapaport, the "Going Bad" rapper posted a picture with the New York City native who he claims "wanted a selfie" with him.

— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) February 18, 2019

The tweets that got Mill fired up by the 48-year-old entertainer featured references about the rapper's previous beef with Drake and his, in Rapaport's opinion, incapability to rap on beat.

"Where I'm from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don't respond you're & always will be WACK," Rapaport started.

Where I’m from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don’t respond you’re & always will be WACK.

Cardi B And Blueface Release Music Video For “Thotiana” Remix

Cardi B is on a hot streak since taking home the Grammy Award (Feb. 10) for Best Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy). The Bronx native’s triumph at the annual showcase kept her steady on a path of musical domination since releasing her second collaboration with Bruno Mars (“Please Me”) and recently, the remix to Blueface’s “Thotiana.”

Decked out in a red bandana-print outfit, Cardi appears in the Cole Bennett-directed visual to spit a sensual verse. “Bust is, bust it, I’m a savage/ Bi**h, throw it back like a 10-year challenge/ Take him to the crib, the I push him on the sofa/ Have his breath smelling like pu**y and mimosa.”

In April 2018, Cardi B unveiled her debut album to fanfare. Since then, the mother-of-one has remained a dominant figure in the music industry and she hopes to further solidify that presence with her upcoming sophomore project. “Hopefully I can get my album done around the same time that Invasion of Privacy came out,” she previously said. “I don’t know how possible that’s gonna to be because I feel like I’m gonna be extremely, extremely busy.”

Until then, watch the "Thotiana (Remix)" video above.
