The 'Bodack Yellow' hitmaker will join talk show host Jimmy Fallon for one night only on April 9, where she will serve as the first ever co-host of the popular show, which premiered four years ago in 2014.

On the night, the 25-year-old rapper will be a chat guest, the show's musical guest and she'll also be featured for the entire hour-long programme to help interview other guests.

For Cardi, the co-hosting slot has been arranged in promotion of her upcoming album, 'Invasion of Privacy', which is set to hit shelves and streaming sites on Friday (06.04.18).

The booking will mark Cardi's third appearance on the 'Tonight Show', and comes after she last featured on the show as a guest in December last year, where she revealed the origins of her stage name.

She said at the time: "My name come from, you know what, my sister name is Hennessy. You know what I'm sayin', my sister name is Hennessy, right? So everybody used to call me Bacardi. So I always called myself Bacardi, right? And then it was my Instagram name - Bacardi, Bacardi B - but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted, and I think it was [the brand] Bacardi that had something to do with it. So I just turned it to Cardi B."

Meanwhile, Cardi will be hoping that she can make it to her scheduled appearance, after she claimed last week that she was battling through sickness to make sure her album was finished on time.

The 'Bartier Cardi' rapper said: "I slept in the studio, and I'm getting sicker and sicker. This Miami weather with the air conditioner f***ing me up, but I need to do one more song for my album, I really need to do it (sic)."
