We all knew Cardi B's album was going to be a big deal, but very few people could have predicted that it would perform this well, this quickly. Cardi B can rightfully stake a claim as one of the biggest names in hip hop and the success of "Invasion of Privacy" only goes a long way towards proving that.
The latest news around the album is that it has just broken another record, this time a streaming record on Apple Music. According to local tech blog, The Verge:
"Cardi B's debut album Invasion of Privacy racked up over 100 million streams on Apple Music, setting a new record for first-week streams by a female artist on the service, Apple tells The Verge. Invasion of Privacy doubled the previous streaming record — held by Taylor Swift's Reputation — by the middle of the week. It is now the fifth most-streamed album ever on Apple Music, passing The Weeknd's Starboy and Ed Sheeran's Divide."
For a debut album to be surpassing records held by industry established artists such as The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift only proves just what a force Cardi B is to be reckoned with. It's only once in a lifetime that we see a relative newcomer become a powerhouse in such a short space of time.
Meanwhile, Cardi got the world talking after giving off an amazing performance at Coachella Festival. Not only was she exceptional, she did it all while pregnant!
