She continued: "I reached out to Cardi and we paired and we created, I think, a soundtrack and an album that is not only historic, but I think is a beautiful backdrop to these stories".
The upcoming sports drama movie, which sees Cardi B, Saweetie, the City Girls and more appear on the all-female soundtrack stars Shamier Anderson, Adan Canto, Sheila Atim, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Valentina Shevchenko and Lela Loren.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have had bad blood between them after a video surfaced of Cardi throwing her high heel shoe at Nicki during a New York Fashion Week after-party in September 2018.
Following the incident, Nicki was seen liking negative social media comments about Cardi's newborn at the time, taking to her radio show 'Queen Radio' to address the claims and fight with the Bodak Yellow rapper some more.
Taking to Instagram to shut Nicki down, Cardi went on an explosive rant calling out Nicki on several things including her leaking her phone number, what happened during the 'Motorsport' music video and Nicki claiming she used payola to get a No. 1 hit.
So who do you think is the queen of hip-hop? Cardi B or Nicki Minaj?
