Cardi B explains why she plans to name her next album "Tiger Woods" (Seriously, this is happening)

October 03, 2019


I'll be the first to admit that my music tastes are stuck in the good ol' 1990s. What a time to be alive and in middle school/high school. From the Grunge movement to the Boy Band Era at the end of the decade to the Spin Doctors—especially the Spin Doctors—I could leave my car radio on 90s on 9 all day. Actually, that's pretty much what I do anyway. Oh, when I'm not listening to the Dave Matthews Band channel. DAVE! GOAT!

Anyway, this is all to say I know very little about the current crop of musical acts. Now, I'd be lying if I said I've never heard of Cardi B, but I wouldn't be lying if I said I couldn't name one of her songs. But it looks like I'll be able to name one of her albums now. And suddenly, I'm a big fan.

During an Instagram Live chat on Wednesday, the rapper announced she's going to name her upcoming album "Tiger Woods." No, not in honor of the 15-time major champ, but literally after Tiger Woods. As in, at some point in the near future, kids will be able to walk into a Tower Records and buy Cardi B's new CD, "Tiger Woods." Wait, kids don't buy CDs these days? And Tower Records doesn't exist anymore?! Sigh.

Anyway, here was Cardi B's reasoning for the title:

"I think I’m going to name my album Tiger Woods," she said. "I’m going to name my album, I think, Tiger Woods, because, remember when everybody was talking sht on Tiger Woods […] and then he fcking came and won that green jacket? That’s what I’m going to name my album.”

All factual. Tiger's fifth green jacket was amazing. And here's the video of her saying this as proof that it's actually happening:

Even as a (barely) millennial stuck in his ways, I promise to listen to that title track when it drops. ("Drops" is still acceptable, right?)

As George Costanza would say, "WORLDS ARE COLLIDING!" For young Cardi B fans who aren't aware, George Costanza was a character on a hit sitcom called Seinfeld. Ah, the good old days.
