Then came the duo's first collaboration, Lick, in January 2017, and Cardi B and Offset had a hard time debunking their romance rumors or thwarting the sexual tension, for that matter.

And that motivated me to work even harder," said the Bodak Yellow rapper.

Every woman, I think, wants to get married and wants to have children. It's never too early to get married now. You know, if you want to propose to me, you can," Cardi said during her performance at the MTV VMAs in August.
