Cardi B announced on Thursday that she will not beĀ participating in Bruno Marsā€™ upcoming fall tour so that she may have more time to recover from giving birth earlier this month, and in order to spend more time with her newborn babe, Kulture.

The artist said in a statement posted to Twitter and Instagram Thursday evening, ā€œI thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that Iā€™d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.ā€

Bruno Mars responded to Cardiā€™s decision with a supportive message.


Mars and Cardi previously collaborated on the single ā€œFinesse.ā€ Marsā€™ tour is scheduled for a performance at Lollapalooza on August 3, then it will proceed to Denver on September 7.
