Cardi B ties with Lauryn Hill for longest-charting debut female rap album

‘Invasion of Privacy’ earns Cardi another breakthrough.


Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy has made history once again. Just last week (Dec. 30), the Bronx-bred star’s debut effort became the most-streamed album by a female rapper on Spotify. Now, Cardi is making new headlines, this time competing with a hip hop legend.

According to Chart Data, Bardi’s Invasion of Privacy has now tied with Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill as the longest-charting debut album by a female rapper in Billboard 200 history. In a tweet posted on Monday (Jan. 6), the account also noted that each album remained on the chart for 91 weeks.

While the Grammy winner hasn’t commented on her latest feat yet, she did take to the ‘Gram to share her Spotify win, writing, “Ya ready for my second album?”

Not much is currently known about Cardi’s sophomore LP, except that it’s expected to arrive later this year.

“I’m working on my album, I already have two songs,” she previously said on the “Rap Radar” podcast. “I actually have three but I’m not sure about one of them. I’m working on it.”

Cardi previously claimed her next album would be named Tiger Woods.

“I think I’m going to name my album Tiger Woods,” she said during an Instagram Live session. “I think I’m going to call it Tiger Woods because, remember when everybody was talking sh*t on Tiger Woods, like ‘Oh blah blah, blah blah this, blah blah that,’ and then he f**king came and won that green jacket? That’s what I’m going to name my album.”

She later backpedalled on the idea, saying she was only joking.

Also speaking with “Rap Radar,” Cardi confirmed that a tour will follow the album.

“I want to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse for my tour, get ready for my f**king tour,” she said on the podcast. “After my tour, I want to have a kid. I want to have another kid... I’m really planning to do all of that in less than a year.”
