The track is set to drop Friday, Feb. 15 at midnight.
Cardi's last collaboration with Bruno Mars, for his song "Finesse" was a major hit with its cute, nostalgic 90s video.
Bruno has previously called Cardi "a true star," adding that when he met her, she was "everything he hoped she would be."
I met cardi B at 3 am after my show in LA backstage where we recorded her verse for Finesse. She walked in the room and she was everything I'd hope she'd be. Never change cardi! Don't let this crazy music business change who you are. You possess something that can't be taught. You're a true star. Thank you for putting your energy and love all over this record and video. I hope you feel better soon because we got some celebrating to do. Everyone show ya love for the one and only CARDI B! ???????????????? #Finesse

"I’m seeing a lot of bulls— today and I saw a lot of s— last night, and I’m sick of this s—. I work hard for my motherf—ing album,” she said in an angry rant she posted before quitting the social network.
Multiple stars defended Cardi B, including Lady Gaga and Chance the Rapper.
