About Cardi B

Cardi B's rambunctious spirit and brave tongue garnered instant online popularity, rapidly increasing her fan base. She has evolved into an entertainer, actress and a renowned rapper in just a short time. Cardi rose to rap success and fame, releasing her debut studio album, "Invasion of Privacy," in 2018. Cardi continues to be at the top of her game as the first woman with five simultaneous Top 10 hits on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart as well as the first female rapper with five Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s. Now a GRAMMY Award-winning rap superstar, Cardi's 3x platinum-selling debut album, "Invasion of Privacy," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album includes the RIAA diamond-certified classic "Bodak Yellow," and all 13 tracks on "Invasion of Privacy" have been RIAA-certified gold or higher - making Cardi the first female artist to achieve this feat. Cardi's single "Money" is now RIAA 4x platinum certified, and her recent single, "Press," is RIAA-certified platinum. "WAP (Feat. Megan Thee Stallion)" proved an immediate blockbuster with a record-shattering debut that earned RIAA gold certification on its first day, and became one of the top 3 hip-hop streaming debuts of all time along with breaking various other records. Cardi returned with the now 2X RIAA platinum-certified "Up," and most recently appeared on the highly anticipated "Rumors" with Lizzo.
