Cardi B’s ‘Invasion of Privacy’ Album Goes Platinum
Cardi B's storybook career continues to get better, with 2018 heading in an upward trajectory from where 2017 left off. She can now add platinum album to her list of year's accomplishments as her debut LP, Invasion of Privacy, was recently certified platinum by the Recording Industry Academy of America.
Released on April 6, the album took exactly three months to obtain platinum status as RIAA's database notes the project was certified on Friday (July 6). IOP went gold upon its release thanks to big singles.
Speaking of singles, each of the four tracks released off the album, "Bodak Yellow," "Bartier Cardi," featuring 21 Savage, "Be Careful" and "Like It" featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin, have all earned platinum plaques, with the latest being "Be Careful" which reached the milestone on June 28.
"Like It" recently shot up to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The feat made history as Cardi is the only female rapper to post two No. 1 songs on the chart. Her other No. 1 was the breakout single, "Bodak Yellow," in 2017.
In related news, Bardi is currently in the midst of a legal battle with her former manager, Shaft. Cardi was managed by Shaft from 2015 until parting ways to join the Quality Control team in March. He initially sued her back in April for $10 million for breach of contract and defamation, among other claims. She has since upped the ante with her own counter suit of $15 million.
