There are good weeks, and there are great weeks. Music’s most up-and-coming rapper is having the latter. She released a new album, announced her pregnancy, and appeared on TRL, where Cardi B talked about the surprise family reunion arranged by Offset to celebrate his fiancée’s album in an extra special way.
The 25-year-old’s much-anticipated debut album Invasion of Privacy dropped on April 6, and Guest of a Guest reports that Cardi B chose her favorite restaurant Philippe Chow for the release party. But the Bronx native wouldn’t be toasting her success alone, because Offset had secretly flown in a bunch of her relatives from the Dominican Republic. As Cardi B told the TRL audience on Tuesday:
“What I was doing was, I had a listening party, and then Philippe Chow, they left the restaurant open for me, and I was like, ‘Oh that is so nice.’ And out of nowhere, I saw my whole entire family.”
Or if not her entire family, then certainly a lot of them. For example, “she was in LA,” Cardi clarified, gesturing at her sister Hennessey Carolina, who was co-hosting the live event with Sway Calloway, according to MTV. “But my dude flew some of my family members from the Dominican Republic, they were in there for a hot minute, I was like,” she smiled widely and flopped her hand down in a gesture of contentment, “I can’t believe it.”
