Cardi B is making massive gains on a pure sales tip.
An exciting update on the Pop star’s commercial journey below…
The lion’s share of the entertainer’s chart success has been charged by streams meaning, despite her game-changing success on the Billboard 200, she still remains on the lower-end of the scale as far as traditional sales are concerned.
Now it seems that is about to change.

Her jam ‘I Like It‘ has reached sales 800,000 copies in the United States alone since May 25th 2018 after it was certified platinum four times in the market because of the streams it accumulated within the first few months of its release.
On a global front, the track now sits at sales of 1 million units making it one of the fastest-selling hits of the year.
Though these numbers pale in comparison to pure sales figures secured by her ‘Motorsport’ collaborator Nicki Minaj, they do silence talk that the vivacious Cardi would falter without the support of Spotify, Apple Music and the like.
US pure album sales: @iamcardib, Invasion of Privacy 206,000 (total).

Her team are undoubtedly hoping her gains on a singles front will spill over into her albums as her debut offering ‘Invasion of Privacy’ has only sold 206,000 copies to date.
