Cardi B Breaks More Records With Invasion Of Privacy
As far as music goes, Cardi B has been on top since the release of her album back in April.
Now, the rapper is expanding her list of accomplishments even more as 2018 comes to an end. On December 20, the Recording Industry Association of America revealed that Cardi’s entire Invasion of Privacy tracklist has been certified gold or higher. Not only is this an amazing accomplishment in and of itself, but this also makes her the very female rapper to have every song on an album get at least a gold certification from the RIAA.
Sharing the record-breaking news to Instagram, Bardi explained that her achievement adds pressure for her upcoming sophomore album. “BIG MOMMA BARDI !!! Im happy my album is amazing but I got sooo much pressure an anxiety cause I know I gotta kill with my second one,” she wrote in the caption to her Instagram post.
As for specifics: Bardi’s “Bodak Yellow,” has been certified platinum seven times, “I Like It,” which features J Balvin and Bad Bunny has been certified platinum five times, and “Bartier Cardi,” which features her (soon-to-be-ex?) husband Offset, is double platinum. Her tracks “Ring,” “I Do,” and “Drip” have all been certified platinum. Lastly, gold status is awarded to “Bickenhead,” “Money Bag,” “Get Up 10,” “Best Life,” “She Bad,” and “Thru Your Phone.”
As we mentioned before, Cardi’s highly anticipated Invasion of Privacy debuted back in April and features some major guest appearances from Migos, Kehlani, Chance The Rapper, YG and more. Cardi, who most recently headlined the 2018 Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles, doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Earlier this week, the “Money” rapper uploaded a video debuting an unreleased verse about not needing any more press. Reportedly, Cardi is looking to release a deluxe version of her debut album in early 2019, including both “Money” and “Press.”
To put the icing on an already stacked cake, the 26-year-old is nominated for a whoppinf five Grammy Awards. Her nods include Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy, Song of the Year for her single “I Like It,” Best Rap Performance for her chart-topping single “Be Careful” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her feature on Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You (Remix).”
You really can’t deny that 2018 was Cardi B’s year, and by the look of things, 2019 is going to be even bigger for her.
