No doubt, rapper Cardi B has all the buzz around her.
And that’s not reflecting in the manner in which she makes bank. Have only just released her album Invasion of Privacy, social media and a solid brand combined to deliver the results: the artist went Gold in just a couple of days of release.
The projections were all there – reports had expected the album to move between 170,000 to 200,000 equivalent album units in its first week with 45,000 to 55,000 of that figure being made up of pure sales.
Cardi’s 2017 mixtape Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2 previously peaked at No. 25 on the US Independent Album charts. Due to pre-release single sales, including those of Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Bodak Yellow,” the album has already been certified gold.
Official sales numbers for the projects will announced by Billboard early this week.
