The “Be Careful” singer marked the five-year anniversary of the release of Invasion of Privacy this week, paying tribute to the project that shot her to fame and earned her her first Grammy. Cardi shared a video to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, where she showed off champagne, a chocolate cake, and a box of treats alongside vinyl and CD copies of her debut album.

“What my team got me, guys!” the rapper said in the clip. “Yeah! Five years! Yeah, I’m still getting booked for millions of dollars with one muthaf***in’ album, bitch! Yeah, wassup? Ain’t nobody can tell me nothing.”

The mother of two went on to repost a post from RapCaviar on her Instagram Story, which notes that her three hits from the album–“Bodak Yellow,” “I Like It” (featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin) and “Bartier Cardi” (with 21 Savage)–have collectively earned over 4.1 billion Spotify streams, also reposting a video from her record label celebrating the album.

“The GRAMMY-winning debut album became the first in history to have all tracks certified platinum or more by the RIAA, and spawned the diamond-certified hits “Bodak Yellow” & “I Like It,” Atlantic Records said in their post.

Invasion of Privacy was released on April 6, 2018, instantly making its way to the top of the Billboard 200. The album was a critical success after its release and won the rapper numerous awards including a Grammy for best rap album and a BET Award for best album of the year.

In the five years since, Cardi B has received a lot of backlash for not yet releasing her sophomore album–but as she pointed out in her video, she’s still doing quite well for herself without dropping new music.
