Cardi B released her new album "Invasion of Privacy" today and it went Gold in a matter of minutes. The album includes her two mega singles, "Bodak Yellow" and "Bartier Cardi" as well as her newest track, "Drip" which features Migos.
Forbes explains why she was able to reach Gold certification so quickly:
"The Bronx-born rapper can attribute this figure to the massive success of her debut Atlantic Records single, "Bodak Yellow," which topped the Billboard Hot 100 last September and is certified 5x Multi-Platinum (5 million units) by the RIAA. As Chart Data recently noted, 10 track units equal one album sale, which means Invasion of Privacy has moved 500,000 units on the strength of "Bodak Yellow" alone, enough to earn a Gold certification."
However, it's worth noting that these will not impact her "first week sales" total. Instead, Cardi B will have to rely on streams and the power of her fan base, something we think she'll no problem doing.
In the meantime, Cardi B has finally put paid to any suggestion that she has a problem with Nicki Minaj. According to the rapper, this is all made up:
"Fans and people really want to see that happen because it's really entertainment to see people beef. If you ain't f--king my man, or if you not taking my money from me, or if you not stop my money then I don't really give a f--k about you,"
