She just dropped her fire ass album, Invasion of Privacy, she's "finally free" after telling the world she's pregnant on Saturday Night Live and she just co-hosted the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Cardi B's debut album, Invasion of Privacy has garnered 100 million streams on Apple Music since its release last week, breaking the platform's record for most first-week plays earned by a female artist, the platform announced Friday. "It's gonna be insane because it's what I like", she told Apple Music Beats 1 during a recent interview.

The title was previously held by Taylor Swift's Reputation, however, Variety has now reported Invasion of Privacy had already bagged more than double the previous record holder's streams by the middle of the week.


This isn't the first time Cardi has taken a music record from Swift. The first song to hit number one was Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)". Cardi's album is now the fifth most-streamed album ever on Apple Music, passing The Weeknd's Starboy and Ed Sheeran's Divide.

In a four-star review of Cardi's album, NME's Nick Levine wrote: "From stripper to chart-topper via reality TV stardom, Cardi B's story is enthralling and she knows it. "This some real-life fairytale Binderella shit", she informs us on "Best Life".
