Cardi B keeps breaking records! Stay pressed, haters – she has not fallen off. In fact, Cardi B is cleaning up on the charts and across platforms. The superstar, with 74 million Instagram followers, continues to dominate 2020 with a growing list of accolades. Her debut album Invasion of Privacy has now spent 124 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart.
The title was previously held by Nicki Minaj, whose 2014 album The Pinkprint spent 123 weeks on the Billboard 200. Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy has now surpassed Minaj’s 124 weeks and is likely to continue to chart for weeks to come, solidifying her as the record holder.
Cardi B’s album Invasion was a massive hit, originally released in April 2018 supporting her global phenomenon “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves).” The album spawned the crossover mega-hit “I Like It (featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin)” which has amassed over 1 billion streams on Spotify alone.
Let’s not forget it was Cardi B that brought us the initial COVID-19 jam. It appears she has no plans to slow down, having released one of the most successful singles of 2020, despite the global pandemic.
Since the release of “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi has remained hard at work. The single has earned both a new best-performing record on the Billboard charts and major streaming platforms, crossing various milestones week after week. A quick look at the chart data on Twitter will show that “WAP” reaches a new peak nearly each day.
Cardi is gearing up for the release of her Sophomore album which she updated fans about on Instagram recently. There is no set date or confirmed title at this time, but Cardi assures fans she remains focused and excited to drop an “[amazing] project.”
