"Hot Shit" is Cardi B's first outing as the lead artist in 2022, and follows her her appearance on Kay Flock's "Shake It" with Dougie B and Bory300 in April.

The new track features Kanye West and Lil Durk, and is produced by Tay Keith (Drake, Lil Nas X). Cardi B told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 that the song is "is a little bit older than "WAP"."

Cardi B also told Lowe of her future releases, "I have another one that is different from this record. And right after that, I really just want to put that album together. I'm just trying to put all my plans together and everything together. Right now I'm doing a lot of transitions with my team. I told people that I'm going to be more outside. I've been preparing myself for a festival and I haven't performed in a crowd since 2019. And my body's definitely changed. I'm finally 30, and I just had a really big baby. Just even my body, the way that I program, I'm a little bit different now. So right now I'm trying to break my shell with everything. Even now, I'm really nervous. I haven't put out a single since "Up". That's almost a year and a half ago, so I'm just breaking in. But once I get comfortable and I start setting in, I'm ready to go on beast mode. I'm ready for it."

As well as working with Kay Flock this year, Cardi B appeared on Summer Walker and SZA's extended version of "No Love" in March.

Back in December last year, Cardi B said that her follow-up to 2018's Invasion of Privacy is expected to arrive in 2022.

Cardi B's "Hot Shit" featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk is out now on Atlantic Records.
