Arik McArthur/WireImageCardi B is already mapping out her next music era and is not ruling out a potential collab with Lizzo.
The “Up” rapper kickstarted the possibility over the weekend when gushing over Lizzo’s glamor shots on Twitter and praised, “These pics do it for me.”
Soon after, fans began pressing Cardi to “drop that collab” with the Juice singer — which, of course, got Cardi’s attention real quick.
Minutes after a fan weighed in on making that partnership happen, the 28-year-old rapper suggested, “Can I do a song first [that] I can put her on?”
Cardi also followed up with a request to her fans, writing, “Ok but stop pressuring me to do stuff. I can’t even show love to people with 100 collab collab collab.”
Soon after, Lizzo caught wind of the Grammy Award-winning rapper floating the possibility of the two teaming up and reacted accordingly on her Instagram stories.
“Damn this might get me back on Twitter,” she cracked on Sunday while sharing a screenshot of Cardi’s exchange with her fans.
This wasn’t the first time the two expressed interest in a musical team up — Cardi previously revealed that she wanted to feature Lizzo in the “WAP” music video, but the “Truth Hurts” singer was on vacation at the time.
“I’m cool with Lizzo and everything. Like, we’ve been sending DMs to each other and all that. But she was on vacation and she wasn’t in town,” said Cardi at the time, who also revealed she views Lizzo as a “powerful and influential” woman.
