Cardi B just received a pretty big co-sign. On Saturday morning, the Bronx rapper went to social media with a screenshot of an O, the Oprah Magazine Instagram post that was captioned: “Listening to that new Cardi B album.” The image showed the legendary entrepreneur with her eyes closed and a satisfied smirk across her face.
Cardi, of course, was in disbelief.
“I CAAAANNNNTTTTTT BELIIIEEEEEVEEEEESS IT!!!!!!!!!!--------OMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGG,” she captioned the screenshot.
Shortly after Cardi shared the news with her fans, congratulations poured in:
The rapper’s long-awaited debut album, Invasion of Privacy, officially hit streaming services Friday. The project included appearances from Chance the Rapper, SZA, 21 Savage, and Migos, with production by DJ Mustard, Murda Beatz, Boi-1da, and more.
“I am so grateful for everybody that decided to be on my album because as an artist, I know how busy artists are,” she said during a recent interview with Beats 1's Ebro Darden. “For them to take the time and do it exactly right. Everything came out how I wanted it to come out. Perfect hooks, perfect verses. It was just like, ‘Jesus loves me, I must have done something right in my life.’”
Cardi will also make her Saturday Night Live debut alongside host Chadwick Boseman the night after Invasion of Privacy's release.
