Cardi B’s ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ Already Went Gold
Cardi B‘s debut album, Invasion Of Privacy, has been out less than 24 hours and it’s already earned a gold certification from the RIAA.
This makes her the first female artist to achieve a gold certified album on the day of its release. Cardi’s quick certification is all thanks to this technicality.
According to reports from Vibe Magazine: “The project reportedly received the brand new certification due to a technicality, which she can attribute to the success of her mega-hit, “Bodak Yellow,” according to Forbes. As previously reported, “Bodak Yellow” was certified 5x multi-platinum in Sept 2017. That being so, the Chart Data states that 10 track units is the equivalent of one album sale, which means that her No. 1 single, which is on her album, has already sold 500,000 units, making it gold status.”
But despite “Bodak Yellow’s” monster sales, those units won’t contribute toward Invasion of Privacy‘s first-week sales total.
The early success of Invasion Of Privacy is essentially the cherry on top of the Bronx rapper’s history-making year. Last September, “Bodak Yellow” dethroned pop princess Taylor Swift from the top spot on the Billboard’s Hot 100, making Cardi only the second female rapper to score a solo #1 hit since Lauryn Hill’s 1998 track, “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
Congratulations Cardi B!!! 👏👏👏
