Part of what makes Mariah Carey‘s nearly 30-year spanning music career so epic, is her medley of remixes that makeover her original tunes with hip-hop and rap features. And Cardi B is the latest rapper to express interest in working with the music titan.
In an interview with Extra on Thursday (Dec. 20), the rapper spoke with A.J Calloway about a Mariah Carey collaboration that was rumored to happen earlier this year. “It’s not in the works,” the 26-year-old said. “It would be nice if it could be in the works. I’ve just been so busy that I haven’t had time to do my own songs.”
Rumors of a Cardi and Mariah union first began swirling after an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Carey previously expressed interest in creating a hip-hop remix of her song “A No No” off of her new album Caution. “I would love for that to happen. The song you guys were just playing, ‘A No No,’ which was originally Lil’ Kim’s song — we love Kim — I was hoping that the three of us could do a collaboration,” she told Cohen.
The Long Island legend has worked with Da Brat, Missy Elliott, Shawnna, and Nicki Minaj.
