We hear the track — which we learned will feature another big artist as well — is slated to drop Jan. 25, but could be pushed back due to Cardi’s busy schedule.
It’s unclear whether the track will be part of the promised new album.
The date makes sense. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper and Mars are scheduled to perform together ahead of the Super Bowl as part of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest in Atlanta on Feb. 2.
Aerosmith, Ludacris and Migos — the trio that includes Cardi’s estranged husband, Offset — are slated to co-headline the three-day event.
Cardi and Mars have previously worked together, releasing the hit remix of Mars’ “Finesse” in January 2018.
She wrote at the time: “I thought that after giving birth . . . 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically . . . but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
Mars responded with “A Message for Cardi” on Instagram: “Most important thing is you and your family’s health . . . I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right.”
Mars is a big fan of the rapper. He’s said of meeting her for the first time, “She walked in the room and she was everything I’d hope she’d be. Never change, Cardi!”
Cardi announced on Instagram on Jan. 1 that she’s trying for a new album in April, but said, “I don’t know if that’s possible, because I feel like I’m gonna be extremely, extremely busy.”
The hit-maker is currently on tour in New Zealand, where she picked a wedgie onstage and posted a shot of herself on the beach.
Reps didn’t get back to us.
