Cardi B’s long-awaited return to the stage has a date in sight. The rapper will co-headline San Antonio’s Mala Luna Festival, alongside artists like Nicky Jam, Becky G, and Tyler the Creator.
The headliners for the festival, which takes place October 27-28 at the Nelson Wolff Stadium, were announced Monday afternoon.
Cardi B’s last time taking the stage, prior to going on maternity leave to prep for her and husband Offset’s baby arrival, was on April 28 at Washington D.C.’s Broccoli City Festival.
Although she assured fans that she’d be back for the Bruno Mars tour, Cardi announced just a couple weeks ago that she’d be unable to join after realizing that six weeks wasn’t a sufficient amount of time to recover from giving birth, and that she “underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
Cardi has been vocal about wanting to perform and work on new music throughout her pregnancy, and if her last few performances (while with child!!!), plus her continual domination of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, are any indication, her return will be worth the wait.
