Rapper, Cardi B is the cover star for XXL Magazine’s Spring 2021 Issue. The theme for this issue is the “The unstoppable and incomparable Cardi B.”

The series discusses a wealth of subjects, from her rising enterprise information and brokering offers to her love of battle historical past and politics to her extremely anticipated sophomore album and supporting feminine rappers to her place in hip-hop and goals for her daughter.

The rap star selected Hudson Yards’ Edge in New York and its phenomenal views of New York City and New Jersey for her business-themed cowl, photographed by AB + DM. According to Cardi, there’s “no better place to look like a business than home, than New York.” She chosen the location after being impressed by Jennifer Lopez and Maluma’s 2020 “Pa’ Ti + Lonely” video.

During the interview with XXL Editor-in-Chief, Vanessa Satten, Cardi drops loads of gems throughout her lengthy, unique cowl story.

Read excerpts from the interview below:

XXL: Your photo shoot for this story was at a very cool location that you personally requested. How do you think it all came together? Were you happy with how it all came out?

Cardi B: I’ve been doing so much magazines and now magazines have trusted me into giving me control [with shoots]. Even huge fashion magazines, they’re trusting me more now into giving control of how I want my editorial looks and what I think looks amazing. And, that’s what I like to show. I like to show people that I could do it really great. That’s what I’ve been learning. And it’s like, even if it was freezing fucking cold, like my face got burned. Freeze burns and everything.

XXL: But you do it because it’s for the greater good, right?

Cardi B: Yeah, like, I cannot quit. Fuck I look like telling [the crew], “I can’t do this. I’m sorry, y’all. I’m sorry that y’all outside at 4 in the morning. This was a dumb idea for me. I know. It was my idea. But, yeah, I can’t do it. I’m dying.” No. It’s not gonna happen. I gotta do it. I like to show that I could do it.

XXL: So why was the shoot at Edge?

Cardi B: This is like, a new building everybody talks… I saw it on a JLo video. I was like, Oh, this spot looks dope. And I’ve been staying in L.A. for months ’cause I’m out there working.

Few Indoor Date Ideas You Can Do These Season !!!

Due to the COVID-19 out break and then government laws and advice is to practice social distancing wherever possible We’re all spending more time inside than ever before these days, and it looks like that situation is set to continue.

However, that doesn’t mean we’re not also looking for ways to keep ourselves occupied while we respect the guidelines and stay indoors – and that’s where these indoor date ideas come in.

If you’re stuck at home with your significant other, there are lots of ways you can spend quality time together and make memories that will last for years to come.

1. Draw a bath and let the wine flow

When it comes to being in a long-term relationship, there are quite a few ways to bond with your partner, as well as several boundaries you should never cross. And, when you think about it, a lot of them occur at home — especially when it comes to sharing intimate spaces, like the bathroom.

A bubble bath can be sooo relaxing after a hard day, and taking one together adds a little sexy sweetness to the mix. Kick things up a notch by sharing a bottle of wine while you’re in there. “Many people hear ‘date’ and think it has to be a thing—getting dressed up, having reservations, and spending money,” Durvasula says. “Not at all. A date is simply time together.

2. Eat like kids again

Everyone has favorite treats from when they were little, and there’s usually a story or two behind them. Stock up on cereals, snacks, and foods you both loved as kids, and enjoy them together. Don’t forget to swap old stories while you’re at it—you’ll probably learn something new about your partner’s childhood in the process. Sharing a snack that brings up fond memories is a prime way to release oxytocin, the cuddle chemical and make you and your partner feel even closer to each other.

3. Cook Together

Cook something new,fresh and exotic, something you’ve never tried before but always wanted to or try your hand at baking a cake or cookies. Turn on the music the process and hum around the kitchen together, then settle down with a bottle to enjoy your spoils.

4. Host a workout together

Try workout together by competing each other in a workout, E.g. who can do more push-ups, walk on the treadmill longer or perform the various yoga poses—or, do couples yoga together. Studies suggest that competition can really crank up the libido.

5. Dance the Night Away

Romantic dancing has all the intimacy of a romantic date; turn down the lights, turn up the music, and lose yourself in each other’s arms and just imagine the affection , emotion and love that will be aired .

6. Host a movie night with the Netflix Party extension

With Netflix party which is a Chrome extension that synchronizes video playback and adds a group-chat function to anything you want to watch on Netflix. My recommendation? Watch a notoriously bad movie over something more earnest. That way, you can bond over the corny parts, laugh at the stale jokes, and flex your humor muscle with witty commentary. Movie theater, arm-over-seat romance is hard to re-create when we’re apart, so lean into the alternative.

dating tips

7. Have A YouTube Night

With YouTube it’s basically impossible to run of things to watch because Several hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every single minute. You could learn a new skill or recipe together, go back to the glory days of MTV with music videos, get sucked into the world of vlogs or unboxings or conspiracy theories, or just sit back and scroll through animals doing ridiculously adorable things on a loop. Curate your own playlist to your interests initially, and then let the suggested videos come to you.

dating tips

8. Establish a Book Club

Has your partner ever read the best novel you’ve ever read ?If the answer is no, you’ve got an instant date idea right there – lend each other your all-time favourites and then reconvene to discuss them over a cup of tea (or glass of wine, or gin and tonic, depending on how lively you want things to get). Curling up with a riveting read is one of the most comforting things you can do as a couple. If you both tend to read on tablets rather than physical pages, don’t forget that Kindle allows you to loan books too.
