Cardi B Sets New US Music Industry Record

Cardi B’s debut album has made history in the US and we can’t think of anybody who deserves the accomplishment more than she does.

Cardi’s debut album, Invasion of Privacy, is the first album made by a woman to have all of its tracks certified gold and platinum in the country.

The Recording Industry Association of America – or RIAA – is the agency who keeps track of the number of digital purchases and streams of songs throughout the US. On Thursday they announced that Cardi is the first woman to have an entirely certified album — that’s 13 songs with millions of streams and purchases!

“Bodak Yellow,” Cardi’s single from the album, is currently certified as 7x platinum – thinking in numbers, this song has either been digitally purchased 7 million times, streamed 1,050,000,000 times, or some mixture of those two numbers.

Cardi took to Instagram to share her happiness – and anxiety – about reaching this incredible milestone. And even though she hasn’t confirmed anything about her sophomore album, we think it’ll be a hit, considering everything she releases is amazing.

Cardi is currently nominated for five Grammys for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album. And considering her music is literally everywhere (and we can’t say we hate that), we doubt she’ll go home empty-handed.
