Cardi B wants to present Rihanna with a "perfect record" before asking her to collaborate with her.

The 'WAP' hitmaker admits she "sounds stupid" trying to make music that sounds like the 'We Found Love' hitmaker, but she isn't going to let it stop her coming up with a song that could work for a duet for the pair.

Speaking on the 'Million Dollaz Worth Of Game' podcast, she said: “I love Rihanna’s music.

“But, I don’t [make] music like that. I sound kinda stupid trying to sing like that. I sound stupid trying to make music like that.”

She added: “So, if I ever get that perfect record … I can not wait until I feel like, ‘This song…I know she’s going to like it.'

“I don’t want to send her nothing like, ‘What is this? Take this thing out of my face.'”

Cardi has already released duets with Megan Thee Stallion, Latto, GloRilla, Flo Milli, and many more.

However, the 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker previously admitted she is "too shy" to ask male artists to collaborate with her.

The hip-hop star - who has appeared on songs with the likes of Bruno Mars and Maroon 5 - has admitted she doesn't have the nerve to ask some of her favourite male counterparts to jump on a track with her because she gets "starstruck" easily and fears she will sound "corny".

Speaking to Billboard in 2020, she admitted: "When female artists are rising, you don’t have to put one down because the others are rising. Every single time a female rapper comes out, people wanna start fake beef. Maybe because they don’t see me [with other women] as often as people want to. The thing is, I’m shy — and really shy to reach out to male artists, to be honest with you. That’s why a lot of collabs that I want, I haven’t gotten yet because I’m scared to reach out. I always get a little starstruck. I be thinking I’m corny, even though I’m funny."

The 31-year-old star also admitted she gets embarrassed when she sings songs that show off her "lovey-dovey side".

Asked if she was able to get more personal on her upcoming second studio album - the long-awaited follow-up to 2018's critically acclaimed 'Invasion of Privacy’ - she said: "Kinda sorta, but then again, when it comes to me writing or putting ideas of my personal life [in the music], I get really shy. When I perform songs like 'Be Careful' or 'Ring', I usually close my eyes because I get really shy about showing that lovey-dovey side. Even to my engineer, I start giggling. I be like, 'Oh, my God, I can’t. This is so embarrassing.'"
