Cardi B ‘Hot S**t' Fan Review: Rapper’s new song dubbed ‘Flop of the century’
Cardi B made an official comeback on Friday, July 1 after she dropped her latest single ‘Hot S**t’ which also features iconic rappers Kanye West and Lil Durk on the vocals. The award-winning rapper, who won’t be releasing a music video for the track, also gifted her fans new pictures on Instagram on the same day.
Cardi B may have tried her best to hype her latest solo single but it looks like hip-hop fans were not up for it. The ‘WAP’ hitmaker’s fresh release got clowned on Twitter as many dubbed it the “flop of the century.” For the unversed, a few hours prior to the song’s release, Lil Durk had called Cardi's track “song of the year” on Instagram.

Cardi B fails to impress fans
Many on social media called out Cardi B over her flow saying she was reading the lyrics instead of rapping. In the song, the 29-year-old female emcee spits, “I don't know what's longer, man, my blocklist or my checklist/ I don't know what's colder, man, my heart or my necklace/ Pretty when I wake up, I'm a bad bi**h at breakfast/ Still might slide on a opp (It's electric)”
Lil Durk, on the other hand, raps, “I pick my side, switches fully and I'ma die for 21 (Slaughter Gang)/ I got plenty cars, I hit plenty stars and didn't come/ I said it plenty times, I pay for bodies, I ain't pay for none.” Kanye’s verse comes at the end where he raps, “Pinky swear, you ain't scared when you heard Ye appear/ I'ma hop up out the bushes, me and Pusha kill your man/ I'm just sayin' now I start to get used to the pain/ 'Til one day I say, "F**k it," brought my masseuse on the plane.” You can stream the full song here.
Cardi B’s ‘Hot S**t’ marks her first single as a solo artist since 2021’s ‘Bet It’. In a new interview with Zane Lowe, Cardi spoke about the song revealing that it’s “a little bit older than ‘WAP’ and that the track was originally recorded in 2019.
‘This is gonna flop she’s over’
“The album art is wayyyy better than the song, all 3 did mid asf”, said one user as another shared, “This is gonna flop she’s over.” An individual asserted, “Aa head bardigang, i dont like the song and i'm disappointed” while another chimed in and dubbed the track “Flop of the century.”
The next one tweeted, “Ye's verse was weak could have taken this to another level, very bubble gum but Not a bad song though.” One user stated, “NO. Not here for it. I did honestly like cardi’s verse but it seemed robotic. Like the flow isn’t there.” Another concluded, “Why she sound like she’s reading the lyrics no flow just reading. I’m being honest it doesn’t give Star Quality she sounded regular.”
