We're just a week and change away now from Cardi B unleashing one the most-anticipated hip-hop debut albums recent years, when she drops her Invasion 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 fer fans “a little preview what you guys gonna get” — which, apparently, includes a cover The Cheetah Girls.
The Cheetah Girls, for Cardi fans over the age 30, was a 2003 Disney Channel movie produced by Whitney Houston and starring Raven-Symoné, as one the four teenage girls in the titular vocal group. “Cinderella” was one the quartet's signature songs — a cover a song by defunct girl group i5 — and in real life was released as the first single f the TV film's soundtrack.
Cardi is evidently a fan, as the Instagram “preview” her new album features her singing “Cinderella” a capella — with various f-camera backing vocalists fering support through their laughter. She has to mumble over some the harder-to-remember lyrics, but otherwise fers an emotional (if clealry tongue-in-cheek) rendition the Disney-pop favorite.
Will “Cinderella” actually appear on Invasion Privacy? Will The Cheetah Girls be a special guest on the album? Is Cardi prepping us for a set 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.
