Remember when Beyoncé announced she was pregnant with Blue Ivy at the MTV VMAs? Looks like our favourite Brooklyn rapper, Cardi B, has decided to take a leaf out of Queen Bey’s book.
Appearing on Saturday Night Live, Cardi performed her song “Be Careful” off her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, wearing a tight-fitting white dress.
As the camera zoomed out, Cardi’s baby bump was in view and fans were beyond excited.
Others thought it was an odd way to announce her pregnancy as the song choice, Be Careful, is about being cheated on multiple times. Cardi is engaged to Migos rapper, Offset, who was involved in a cheating scandal after a video was leaked in December.
The song lyrics leave nothing to the imagination either, so it’s safe to say that Cardi isn’t taking anything lightly.
Be careful with me, do you know what you doin’?
Whose feelings that you’re hurtin’ and bruisin’?
You gon’ gain the whole world
But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’?
Be careful with me
Yeah, it’s not a threat, it’s a warnin’
Congratulations to Cardi B! A pregnancy announcement during a performance and a song warning a cheating partner – we’re getting Beyoncé déjà vu.
