The Earliest Bird: Top New Recorded Release 7-1-22 – 7-7-22 Cardi B’s “Hot Shit”(feat. Ye & Lil Durk) Reviewed

Two years ago Cardi B was joined by Megan Thee Stallion on “WAP” a single that wasn’t only a mammoth hit by anyone’s standards, with a sexy slam dunk video (also featuring Kylie Jenner) that seconded (if not firsted) as a sublime statement on true female sexuality and a balm for girls everywhere trying to experience their true sexuality without judgement .

Since then, while more or less unable to record a bad song, Cardi also didn’t manage to hit those heights and her first single in a year, “Hot Shit” doesn’t manage it either. Yet even so it is very well rapped, “masculine” (per Cardi, it features Kanye and Lil Durk so it sure makes sense) on a typically declarative for the throat, featuring a sample of 1983’s Marcia Griffiths “Electric Boogie”. While it opens with two excellent comparisons, it soon settles her into some typical self promotion, Lil Durk does some shoutouts to a hot shit girl, and Ye adds some self-congratulations (and a shout out to Cardi’s kid sister) which finds him still at # 1 and for the first time not going bonkers about Kim (though he sure does mention his kids).

“Hot Shit” is a true banger, and absolutely a hit in waiting, as well as the eagerly awaited intro to her sophomore more album whenever we might get!

Grade: B+
