That Bardi reign just won’t let up.
Another day, another slay, Cardi B is out here continuing to do numbers. doing numbers. Since her debut Cardi B has proven herself to be a bonafide hitmaker as we’ve seen time and time again since the release of “Bodak Yellow” and even most recently showing up and showing out with her latest hit “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion. Despite haters doubting her longevity, her debut album “Invasion Of Privacy” surely didn’t disappoint. The 2018 album arrived with critical and commercial success, debuting at the top of the Billboard 200 and receiving praise from music journalists and fans alike.
Now, the album already continuously made history previously surpassing Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill as the longest-running female rap debut but today, chartdata has officially declared Invasion Of Privacy as the longest-charting album by a female rapper on the Billboard 200, period. That’s right, “Invasion of Privacy” is now officially the longest charting album by a female rapper on the Billboard 200 history (124 weeks) surpassing Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Print,” which spent a respectable 123 weeks on the chart.

Although “Invasion Of Privacy” is still doing great numbers, fans are still anticipating the release of her sophomore album. With “WAP” recently taking over the charts and everywhere else, anticipation has only grown for the project which Cardi herself has admitted to being super excited about. The album is going to enter new territory for the Bronx sensation and be a lot more personal than her previous work, incorporating themes of female empowerment, marriage, and infidelity– comparable to Beyonce’s 2016 album Lemonade.
“My music is always going to make a woman feel like a bad bitch. When you make a woman feel like she’s the baddest b*tch in the room, to me, that’s female empowerment,” she explained in the recent interview with Elle. “But this album is going to be really different. Of course, it’s going to have my Lemonade moments, my personal relationship moments.” She plans to address the rumors surrounding her relationship with her husband, Offset on the album. “If you all are so curious to know about my relationship and blah, blah, blah, I’m going to put it in the fuckin’ music, and you can buy it, too,” she said in the interview. “I’m not going to give it to you all for free.”
Congratulations Bardi! Keep making the haters eat every negative word they attempt to place on you. Are you as excited for Cardi’s sophomore project as we are?
