Like many mothers, Cardi B was showered with gifts and roses this Mother’s Day (May 10), as she spent the day with her husband Offset and their daughter, Kulture. To commemorate the holiday, the Invasion Of Privacy rapper posted a few photos of her family, hundreds of roses from Offset and a snippet from an unreleased song about Kulture. The track samples Eve’s 1999 hit “Love Is Blind,” as Cardi croons about her unborn daughter and pregnancy.
“From that, sonogram when I saw your little hand/ Legs got weak when I heard your heartbeat / I cried for you, prayed for you, even lost sleep,” she raps in the clip. “Little life growing inside of me / Whole world has been dying to see / I just wanted a little time for me / This is invasion of privacy.”
The track was recorded in 2018, while Cardi was pregnant with Kulture and recording songs for her Grammy Award-winning debut album, Invasion of Privacy. The record arrived three months before Cardi gave birth to Kulture and went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, as well as a nomination for Album of the Year. In the two years since its release, Invasion of Privacy has become the most-streamed album by a female rapper in Spotify history, the first female rap debut to chart on the Billboard 200 for 100 weeks and is certified triple platinum.
Last July, on Kulture’s first birthday, Cardi played another portion of the track on Instagram. In her post’s caption, she shared why the track didn’t make the cut on Invasion of Privacy and explained how she got permission from Eve to sample her song.
“Thank you everybody for wishing my sweet baby a Happy Birthday. I made this song one day before I turned in my album and Eve gave me the green light for the beat I was so grateful! She a real one!” Cardi wrote. “It didn’t make it on time tho cause as you can hear I was maaa stuffy with a terrible cold. I couldn’t get it right no matter how many times I spit it. Even when we try to mix it u still sound stuffy. I love my baby she changed my life.”
