Cardi B’s journey from the strip club to reality TV and a record deal secured a place in fan’s hearts and propelled her to the top of the billboard charts. Some VIPs in the music industry —Beyoncé, Janet Jackson and Rihanna to name a few—have taken notice and given our girl their stamp of approval.
The latest notable celeb to show Cardi B love is Dreamville rapper J. Cole. Cole shared his appreciation for the former Love & Hip Hop star and dropped a few gems of wisdom for her in his return to Twitter.
Dishing on Cardi’s most recent interview with iHeartRadio’s “The Breakfast Club,” Cole wrote, “Also Cardi b I seen your breakfast club interview, loved it. Don’t put all that pressure on your album. You already won. Just drop & repeat.”

The For Your Eyez Only rapper was referring to Cardi saying, “Every single time I think, ’I got all the 10 songs,’ I’m like, ’I’m buggin. These ain’t it.’ It’s just like, ’Damn! I’m competing with myself. I’m competing with the goddamn number two record and stuff,” while reflecting on what’s keep her from releasing her debut album.
Hyped to land Cole’s recognition, Cardi quickly took to Twitter and replied, “Is this real :’)Son my heart is smiling ?Well who am I not to take J cole advice.”

Whether it drops next week or next month, we’ve got a feeling that Cardi B’s highly anticipated debut will be worth the wait.
In our recent Facebook Live with Remy Ma she admitted it was this video that made her respect Cardi’s seriousness in being an artist. There’s a pretty good chance we might hear from Remy on Cardi’s new album.
