Now, I'm not trying to say that men ain't shit, but men ain't shit. But don't take my word for it, there's a ton of music that proves it. In fact, Cardi B's latest, "Be Careful" — which may or may not call out Offset — is simply the newest addition to a genre of music that spans years and years. In honor of Cardi's fire contribution to the pantheon, we rounded up 11 more tracks of women dragging their men. Ranging from Beyoncé to the great Aretha Franklin, listen below.
Beyoncé ft. Jack White, "Don't Hurt Yourself"
"You can watch my fat ass twist boy / As I bounce to the next dick boy."
Brandy, "Who Is She 2 U"
"Then you wanna flip and call me insecure / I'm only buggin' because you are so suspicious."
"If he knew the things I did, he couldn't handle it / And I choose to keep him protected."
Queen Latifah, "U.N.I.T.Y."
"Now don't be getting mad, when we playing, it's cool, but don't you be calling out my name / I bring wrath to those who disrespect me like a dame."
Carrie Underwood, "Before He Cheats"
"I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all four tires / Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats."
Alanis Morissette, "You Oughtta Know"
"As soon as you close your eyes, and you know it / And every time I scratch my nails down someone else's back, I hope you feel it."
Whitney Houston, "It's Not Right, But It's Okay"
"Pack your bags up and leave. Don't you dare come running back to me."
Aretha Franklin, "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Loved You)"
"The way you treat me is a shame, how could ya hurt me so bad? / Baby, you know that I'm the best thing that you ever had."
Waxahatchee, "Brass Beam"
"You look for me in the broken glass and Styrofoam, painting yourself as a sufferer, a stepping stone / You work real hard to herd your friends into a gallery, narcissistic injury disguised as masterpiece."
Fiona Apple, "Sleep To Dream"
"First you run like a fool just to be at my side / And now you run like a fool, but you just run to hide."
Blu Cantrell, "Hit 'Em Up Style"
"Hey ladies, when ya man wanna get buck wild, just go back and hit 'em up style. / Get your hands on his cash and spend it to the last dime for all the hard times."
