Friday at midnight, Cardi B at last dropped her album, Invasion of Privacy, which had the unique honor of following one of the biggest buildups to a debut in recent music history. Since her breakout single "Bodak Yellow" became the song of the summer and a verified mega hit over the course of 2017, the Bronx rapper and former stripper's star has been steadily on the rise, with America rooting for its newfound Binderella.
Invasion of Privacy is made up of 13 tracks that both include her hits "Bodak Yellow" and "Bartier Cardi," but also tracks like the Lauryn Hill-credited "Be Careful," pop-R&B "Ring" (featuring Kehlani), and hooky, deliciously emo "Thru Your Phone" that show the artist's growth and range. Surprise guest features from Chance the Rapper and SZA add a buoyant kick, while the Latin-trap banger "I Like It" (featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin) is a savvy, joyful nod to Cardi's Dominicana roots.
As always, Cardi came through with the one-liners, and below are the ten best lyrics to
