Cardi B's Debut Album 'Invasion Of Privacy' Tops Billboard 200
Since "Bodak Yellow" was released in 2017, Cardi B has quickly ascended to become one of rap's must-listen voices. Following her two nominations at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, now the success of her debut album, Invasion Of Privacy, has further cemented the New York native's place in hip-hop history.
In its first week, Invasion Of Privacy sold more than 235,000 copies, easily earning the top spot on the Billboard 200. Of those sales numbers, 103,000 copies were generated from digital album sales, while a record-breaking 135,000 copies were streaming equivalent albums.
Cardi B earned the most album streams of any female artist in a single week, topping the success of Beyoncé's GRAMMY-winning LP Lemonade. She also earns the distinction of being only the fifth female rapper in history to top the Billboard 200 following the likes of Nicki Minaj, Eve, Foxy Brown, and Lauryn Hill.
Cardi B wasn't kidding when she sang, "I make money moves."
