Cardi B’s debut studio album ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ dropped in April 2018 and reached gold certification on the first day of its release. Cardi was the first-ever female artist to achieve the milestone and has fast become one of the most iconic rap superstars of this era.
As well as experiencing huge chart success, the record won ‘Best Rap Album’ at the 2019 Grammy Awards, establishing Cardi in the history books as the first solo female artist to win that prestigious category. ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ has since gone 3x Platinum and features hit singles ‘Bodak Yellow’, ‘I Like It’ ft. Bad Bunny and J Balvin, ‘Bartier Cardi’ ft. 21 Savage’, ‘Be Careful’, ‘Ring’ ft. Kehlani, ‘Best Life’ ft. Chance The Rapper’, ‘I Do’ ft. SZA and Migos collab ‘Drip’.
In addition to these platinum certified hits, all the LP’s remaining tracks have achieved gold certification or higher, earning Cardi the honour of being the first female rapper to achieve that historic feat.
Cardi’s follow-up singles included 2018’s 4x platinum certified ‘Money’, 2019’s 3x platinum ‘Please Me’ with Bruno Mars and gold certified Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello collab ‘South of the Border’.
She is the first female artist to have five top 10 singles simultaneously on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as well as the first female rapper to have two No.1 hits on the Hot 100. Her long list of nominations and accolades include eight Grammy Award nominations, four BET Awards, 11 BET Hip-Hop Awards, four American Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, six ASCAP Pop Music Awards, 20 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, four iHeartRadio Music Awards, three iHeartRadio Titanium Awards, three Soul Train Music Awards, two Teen Choice Awards and five Guinness World Records – so far of course!
With the arrival of new music in the form of ‘WAP’, we expect to hear a lot more from Cardi B this year.
