Today (April 6) marks three years since Cardi B released her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. In honor of the anniversary, the Bronx rapper took to social media to thank fans for their support and briefly reflect on the process of making the project.

“Thank you everyone that’s been showing I[nvasion] O[f] P[rivacy] love today,” she penned in a tweet. “It feels like a birthday lols. I get real sweet and bittersweet memories when I listen to the album. I faced many challenges thru the process and after, but the outcome was beautiful and successful. Love you forever.”

Cardi has been open about the mental, emotional and physical struggles she experienced while recording her debut album.

As rumors swirled of a pregnancy that she initially tried her best to conceal, she revealed she was dealing with depression, side effects of being pregnant and the possible reception of a rapper who was expecting just months after her rise to the top.

“I did it all while I was pregnant,” Cardi recalled in a previous tweet. “Throwing up, drowsy, terrible colds and in a rush to finish it so I can start doing music videos before I started showing. I spend 24 hours for months sleeping on a couch with my pregnant depressed ass in a studio.”

“I wasn’t even thinking of winning or even the Grammies,” she continued. “All I can think about was…everybody is disappointed in me. Am I still going to have a career after this baby? Is this album going to make me or break me? I need to finish before I start showing.”

To Cardi’s surprise, her hard work paid off, and Invasion of Privacy won a Grammy for Best Rap Album at the 2019 show. The project — which continues to break Billboard records — recently became the first album by a female rapper to spend three full years on the Billboard 200.
