Cardi B is having one hell of a week. Cardi B just released her album “Invasion of Privacy” on Friday. The album has already been certified gold thanks to the boost of “Bodak Yellow.”
The success of “Bodak Yellow” has been nothing short of extraordinary. The track bubbled at No. 2 on the Hot 100 for two weeks under Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” before finally dethroning the pop queen, making Cardi B the second female rapper to score a solo No. 1 hit on the chart, after Lauryn Hill first accomplished the feat in 1998 with “Doo Wop (That Thing).” (Her three-week run atop the chart set a new record for a solo female rapper as well.) The boisterous, inexplicably catchy banger consummated Cardi’s transition from reality TV star (she appeared on VH1′s Love & Hip Hop: New York in 2015) to rapper, proving she had the talent and the star power to make a serious dent on the charts.
The biggest news of the weekend is Cardi B revealing her baby bump on her SNL performance. She was performing her single “Be Careful,” the camera was zoomed in on the upper part of her body. When the song was over the camera zoomed out when the entire world got to see Cardi B baby bump. It was a very special moment in the culture.
