A deep dive into why we’re here for Cardi B., plus Erica Ash shares why she’s ready to be a leading lady
This week’s tea is piping hot because it’s all about bonafide super star, Cardi B. (@iamcardib). She’s brought a cultural shift with the release on her first album and baby reveal. With help from special guest ESSENCE Senior News and Culture Editor Christina Coleman (@ChrissyCole), the hosts unpack Cardi’s big wins and bigger influence from her humble Instagram beginnings and her reality TV fame. Plus, Survivors Remorse’s Erica Ash (@theericaash) becomes a leading lady in BET’s new drama, In Contempt. She stopped by for loads of laughs and real talk about finding her divine lane in Hollywood.
