Cardi B and Beyoncé had a joint track in the works until it was abruptly scrapped due to news of the collab leaking, according to the track’s producer.

In a new Instagram video producer J White Did It just confirmed that the 2017 rumor of the artists linking up was true. At the time, Michael Ashby, aka Ashby The Mix Engineer, shared a picture of his computer screen on his Instagram Story and revealed a file called "Cardi B ft Beyonce demo," causing fans to anticipate a collab which never came. Cardi denied the collaboration and insisted she had never met the engineer – even though he produced "Bodak Yellow."

“Three years ago I had a Beyoncé play with Cardi and that kinda went sour because it went viral that they was doing a song together … This time the song leaked before it came out,” J White said.

“I was just as giddy as everybody else [about the collaboration],” he recalled, but he knew it was dead when it leaked: “I was sitting there just waiting, looking on the Internet, then it leaked.” Bey is notorious for being secretive about her work, so the project was abandoned.

J White Did It has since collaborated with Beyoncé on Megan Thee Stallion’s "Savage" remix, which debuted at No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and along with Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj's new “Say So” remix made history as the first rap tracks by black female artists to secured the top two spaces.
