Cardi B cancels summer tour dates due to pregnancy
Although Cardi is taking a much deserved maternity leave, she has promised fans to be back on the road soon and will be joining Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic tour in September.
Cardi B has canceled a handful of summer tour dates due to her pregnancy.
The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper who surprised fans by revealing her baby bump during her set on Saturday Night Live earlier this month, posted a video on her Instagram Wednesday night (April 25) announcing the cancellation of some upcoming tour dates due to her pregnancy, reports Billboard.
“Shorty keep growing” and she “can barely breathe now,” Cardi explained via an Instagram video-post.
Unfortunately for fans, Cardi's set at Broccoli City Festival this weekend in Washington, DC will be her last until the fall. Among the canceled tour dates are multiple JMBLYA Festival performances in Texas, Rolling Loud Festival in Florida, Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and New York’s Panorama Festival.
But it looks like her absence won't be for too long as Cardi has confirmed that she will return to the road in September to join Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic tour.
Considering Cardi and fiancé Offset (of Migos fame) are reportedly welcoming their first child this July, a maternity leave might be a good idea for the power couple, although Cardi definitely did not let her baby bump get in the way of her dance moves at Coachella earlier this month.
Although Cardi won't be seen on the touring circuit for a while, she did confirm on Twitter that she still plans to work on new music. Her debut album Invasion of Privacy, dropped earlier this month to much fanfare from both fans as well and critics and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Charts.
