Cardi B Just Beat Out Taylor Swift For Another Music Record


Cardi B's real name is Belcalis Almanzar, who first grabbed the spotlight when she discussed becoming a stripper to escape poverty and domestic violence, saying that it provided a means to an education.

The "Money Bag" MC reportedly broke the Apple Music streaming record for her debut album, Invasion Of Privacy. Invasion of Privacy is now Apple Music's fifth-most streamed album ever worldwide. Not only was she finally able to share her pregnancy with the world, but she dropped debut album, Invasion of Privacy, to critical and fan acclaim.

To understand the magnitude of those figures, by mid-week, the streams of Cardi's LP had already more than doubled those of Taylor Swift's Reputation, which previously held the record. In total, Invasion of Privacy is now the fifth most-streamed album of all time on Apple Music, beating out 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". He basically had one line from "Bodak Yellow" in his head, namely: "I let him get what he want/he buy me Yves Saint Laurent/and a new whip".
