Cardi B has been too busy to release a “bonus” track. The “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker — who has a 3-month-old daughter Kulture with husband Offset — wanted to treat fans to an album outtake but they may now have to wait because her schedule is so packed.

Speaking to Ebro Darden on his “Beats 1” show, she said: “The plan was always to drop a, like, bonus. But I just didn’t [think] I was going to be so busy going back-and-forth, back-and-forth things after I gave birth. It’s like, oh my God, like, my schedule is so flooded. Maybe in December or just maybe January. I don’t know. It’s just songs that I felt were really good songs that didn’t make the album.”

The 26-year-old rapper also dismissed rumors she’s penned a diss track about her rival Nicki Minaj, insisting she’d rather air their differences in person.

“The way that I came up, it was never about dissing nobody, and I still feel like I don’t need to diss anybody for nothing. My music was never about that.

“I have a short temper, so that’s like doing things that I don’t stand for. I don’t like when people be subbing me. So why would I sub you on music?

“And any problem that I have, I always address people face-to-face. I don’t care. It’s whatever the energy’s like. I don’t care,” she said.
