"Invasion Of Privacy" has gone Gold in under 24hrs.
Not to rain on her parade, but the milestone was achieved through a neat technicality. Her inclusion of "Bodak Yellow" in the final draft of the album gave her a push coming out the gate. You see, "Bodak Yellow" already carries with it 500,000 units sold. So technically speaking, Invasion of Privacy was a Gold Certified album that moment it was released.
Although "Bodak Yellow's" units sold will not count toward her first week sales, they do give her a distinctive honor. Most rappers would be quick to capitalize off a breakout single, Cardi's patience has paid dividends.
Invasion Of Privacy is out today, where records are sold. The album features also features her second single "Cartier Bardi," as well as a slew of big name appearances from Kehlani, Chance the Rapper, YG, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, SZA, and more.
