𝑪𝒂𝒓𝒅𝒊 𝑩 has revealed that she’d been going through a slump recently — one that is now behind her.

During an Instagram Live session on Friday (March 8), the New York City MC opened up about her internal struggles and took the opportunity to thank her supporters for helping her get through the rough patch.

“Thank you for giving me back my confidence because for a long time, I lost it,” she said. “I don’t think a lot of people understand that it’s more than just music. I lost my confidence in, like, myself; not the way I look, but just afraid of things — like I’m afraid to being judged, I’m afraid to being myself, I’m afraid of all the bad comments […] I just feel like I was afraid of everything.

“I’m just starting to feel like I’m not afraid anymore. I’m just not afraid anymore, and I’m going to stop being afraid […] I’m not going to have no breaks, like y’all going to see me almost every single fucking week.”
