Cardi B – Press (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)


“Press” is the brand new single released by rapper Cardi B from her upcoming second studio album. The song was teased as early as December 2018 and was released on May 31, 2019.

“Press” follows Cardi B’s successful collaboration “Please Me” with Bruno Mars released in March 2019. Together, these songs form the platform for Cardi B’s second studio album following her debut studio album “Invasion of Privacy which won the ‘Best Rap Album’ award at the 2019 Annual Grammy Awards.

The new track “Press” targets the media, and bashing artists reflect on their careers and personal lives on a daily basis. Cardi B also seems to be conversing that she might have a lot of enemies in the industry, but she isn’t affected by any of them as she continues to be the queen of rap. However, the main theme of the song is to extol Cardi’s performance in the music industry and flaunt her luxurious life.

The artwork revealed for the new single is NSFW. It features Cardi B fully nude but covered in strategic places, and she is surrounded by paparazzi with old-fashioned flash cameras. The idea behind this cover art is to show the media’s unquenchable thirst to strip celebrities and expose all they have – and all for what? money and fame.

Cardi B uses the word “press” to refer to the media, and also to describe a situation of suffocation or loss. As Cardi B suffers the negative consequences of the ever-increasing media attention given to her, the rivals are suffocating. It’s got to a point where Cardi B turns down more paparazzi – perhaps one of the few artists to achieve that status in the fewest years. Cardi B gained worldwide attention after her single “Bodak Yellow” went viral in June 2017. Since then, Cardi has been a dominant force in the rap and hip hop industry.

The first verse of “Press” is almost entirely aimed at Cardi B’s competition. She uses descriptive lyrics to describe how far ahead of the competition she is, which has caused them to be just jealous and envious. Cardi B also talks about her expensive purchases such as the Patek Phillippe wristwatch and VVS jewelry.

In the second verse of “Press”, Cardi B boasts of more high-end purchases than she has been able to afford thanks to her successful career. A new mansion, a new Bentley truck, premium cosmetics like MAC, Dior merchandise and more money to spend than she can imagine how.

It is more likely than not that “Press” will be released as a music video, and we know in good faith that the video will be pretty self-explanatory. Stay tuned.

There are a few versions of the song’s cover art as shown below (all self-explanatory).
