Cardi B's sophomore album is still incomplete.

As the world awaits the follow-up to her Grammy-winning debut album, Invasion of Privacy, the "Writing On The Wall" rapper sat down for an interview with Baller Alert where she gave an update on the status of the project.

"I have my cool, calm, and [collected] songs, just missing a couple more club hits," she revealed, explaining that her recording sessions for the album are still in progress. "But we're getting there."

As for when she plans to "get there," well, Cardi played it coy, saying she doesn't like putting out a firm date when it comes to new music. "I can never put a date on it because, like, when you feel like you've got those songs, that's when it’s gonna come out," she said. "I can not put a date on my ears, you know what I'm saying?"

Last month, Cardi shared a preview of the first song off her upcoming sophomore album. After a Twitter user asked her to “spill some tea on the single," Cardi responded by sharing a three-second clip of an undisclosed track.

"Shake, earthquake," she raps over the Wheezy-produced beat. While it was a short teaser, it was enough to get Cardi fans excited about her forthcoming project as the gushed about the brief preview on Twitter.

The snippet came a few months after the "Press" rapper blessed fans with a "little something something" — a casual, yet fire, freestyle on Instagram — to hold them over until her album arrives. Wearing a cropped tank top, sweats and her natural hair while posted up in a kitchen in front of Cap'n Crunch, Vienna Sausages, and other snacks, Cardi jumped on the beat with her usual swagger, rapping, "BX you know I rep that/ b*tches step back/ I'm right back on my bullsh*t you could bet that/ Wack h**s I never stress that, I don't address that.

She continued, "Cardi B find me anywhere the check at/ These bum b*tches is broke and I don't respect that/ Let a sugar daddy talk but they don't reflect that/ You ain't open up no business, got no businesses/ I be in the mansion, you be in my mentions / I came right out the trenches to the top of the charts / Lost friends on the way / This sh*t is breaking my heart / 'Bout 30 seconds in I'm like where do I start / I don't act I'm a hustler just playing my part."
