Cardi B is one of the biggest artists in the world. In fact, Billboard named her "woman of the year."
In the interview that accompanied the honor, Bardi explained that despite her fame she struggles to reach out to male artists to collaborate.
“The thing is, I’m shy and really shy to reach out to male artists, to be honest with you," she said. "That’s why a lot of collabs that I want, I haven’t gotten yet because I’m scared to reach out. I always get a little star-struck. I’ll be thinking I’m corny, even though I'm funny.
When it comes to me writing or putting ideas of my personal life in the music I get really shy,” she continued. “When I perform songs like ‘Be Careful’ or ‘Ring’ I usually close my eyes because I get really shy about showing that lovey-dovey side. Even to my engineer, I start giggling… like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t. This is so embarrassing,’”
Luckily she has female rappers like Megan Thee Stallion she can team with and her famous husband Offset, who owes her favors for cheating.
