Cardi B‘s debut album Invasion of Privacy has already broken one record, and it’s a big one.
The album garnered an astonishing 100 million streams on Apple Music since it was first released last Friday (April 6th), breaking the platform’s record for most first-week plays earned by a female artist. Those streams are more than double the amount that Taylor Swift received after releasing her reputation this past fall. Though it is worth noting that T-Swift’s album wasn’t available on Apple Music until three weeks after its release. Still, this is quite the accomplishment.
This probably doesn’t phase the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer seeing that when Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow” toppled her own song for #1 in September, she sent flowers to Cardi in congratulations.
“Bodak Yellow” is only the second song by an unaccompanied female rapper to ever top the Billboard Hot 100, joining Lauryn Hill’s 1998 track, “Doo Wop (That Thing).” If you haven’t already, check out Cardi B’s album Invasion of Privacy below.
