Cardi B, everyone’s favorite regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx, has a ton to celebrate today: Her highly anticipated debut album, Invasion of Privacy, is finally out, and it was just announced that her single “Bartier Cardi,” which features 21 Savage, went platinum. That means the record-breaking rapper now has four platinum hits to her name, including her “Finesse” remix with Bruno Mars, “No Limit” with G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky, and her smash anthem, “Bodak Yellow.”
Cardi’s success is massive, considering the fact that she exploded onto the music scene just a short time ago. She reacted to the news of “Bartier Cardi” with standard Cardi adorableness, writing on Twitter, “Foreal yaaaaayyyyy!!”Made my day,” and included a string of shocked emoji.

“Bartier Cardi” came out at the end of December, capping off a breakout year for the rapper. She made history with “Bodak Yellow,” which beat out Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” as the longest-running solo number one by a woman rapper, according to Billboard. She also became the first rapper—and the third artist—ever to have three Billboard Hot 100 singles in the top 10 all at once.
Now, with a full album out, there’s no telling what new heights her career will reach. Fans are already going nuts on Twitter while listening to Invasion of Privacy, which features collaborations with Chance the Rapper, R&B darling SZA, Puerto Rican trap star Bad Bunny, reggaeton juggernaut J Balvin, and Migos, the Atlanta hip-hop trio that includes her fiancé, Offset.
She went on Instagram late last night to thank everyone for all the support they’ve given the album so far. “I want to thank everybody that’s listening Invasion of Privacy, I want to thank everybody that was included in the process,” she said before launching into a long list of people who helped her out.
Earlier in the day she’d posted another video of a surprise celebration with her family, sharing that Offset had flown in her relatives from the Dominican Republic.
Congrats, Cardi! We’ll happily sit back and watch you continue your world takeover.
