Chart Check: Cardi B’s ‘Invasion of Privacy’ First Female Rap Album to Spend 3 Years on Billboard 200

Published: Thursday 8th Apr 2021 by Rashad

Cardi B‘s ‘Invasion of Privacy’ is no stranger to invading history books with stats that once seemed insurmountable.

In addition to becoming the first album by a female act to see every one of its singles certified Gold or higher by the RIAA (including the recently Diamond-awarded ‘Bodak Yellow’), ‘Privacy’ is also the first album by a female rapper to nab the Best Rap Album at the GRAMMYs.

Now, it’s adding another win to its seemingly countless list of victories.  Details inside:

Released April 6, 2018, ‘Invasion of Privacy’ celebrated its third anniversary this week – the same time period refreshed charts revealed the set is still listed among the top 200 selling albums.

Found at #97, the updated Billboard 200 edition marks the 156th week ‘Privacy’ was posted (the equivalent of 3 years).  This not only extends the LP’s title as longest-charting female Rap album ever, but it also serves as the first time any female Rap album has held tenancy on the hitlist for 3 years.

As we extend our congrats to Cardi, look below to see who joins her on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Billboard 200.

    Amazing accolade! Congratulations Cardi. ❤️

    At this point I can’t even say congratulations. Streaming have really helped her career. I don’t think it’s fair at all. The previous girls really had to grind and push numbers. Today the fans don’t even have to buy it anymore which sucks because that separated the real stars. But anyways congrats bardi. Atlantic has went far and beyond to remove any traces of any other girls and it’s sick.

      If is so easy Queen by Nicki Minaj was released in streaming era and album fell off quick everyone wanna lessen cardi success if it’s soooo easy why can’t more artist do this so shut up hater

      • Detruth April 8, 2021

        If you can’t go platinum in today’s climate then you gotta be lazy and unintelligent. Everybody gets a plaque nowadays. The bottom of the barrel artists are going number 1 and winning Grammys. This is no disrespect to Cardi i just think its way too easy for everybody now.

      • I April 8, 2021

        They didn’t have love n hip hop TV show on vh1 . cardi did

    • Tori April 8, 2021

      But it was Nicki who rode so hard for streaming to be counted as sales and yet she is still failing unless she’s the featured artist. For a decade and a half, The Barbz have been so concerned with what other female artists are doing and dragging Lil Kim that y’all to stats from her debut era because that was her peak. How are you the Queen of rap and can’t stand 10 toes down in the streaming era, that you begged for, that is designed to make it easier? Nicki stats shouldbe out the roof right?

    Payola

    • DC April 8, 2021

      So you think Atlantic using payola for 3 years y’all are sad af

      • Chase April 8, 2021

        At this point just ignore the trolls and haters. She broke records in the era of streams. Other female artist dropped music as well during thime streaming era, and they can’t even come close. Even male artist can’t touch Cardi. Give credit where it due. It’s not her fault the GP prefer her music over the other ones.

        @DC – Yes ma’am. They did it and still are. The label is going to get their money and HAVE, from Cardi’s crap music, so YES they absolutely DO and will CONTINUE to do so.

        PERCEPTION is everything.

      Every since Nikki bitter ass said that, yall Barbz are running with it as if her mouth is the bible. Every time there’s a positive story about Cardi’s success, here comes the Nicki’s jealous son’s either bringing up payola or saying she writes nothing. However, yall ignore the fact that we all see many other names in Nicki writers credits as well. Cardi has had the longest 15 minutes I’ve ever seen. See yall have prayed for her down fall to the point it back fired in your face. Congrats to Cardi on her continued success haters

      • DC April 8, 2021

        👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

      • HELLOKITTY April 8, 2021

        @Jan – no one has prayed for Cardi’s downfall as it’s not necessary since she hasn’t gotten off her knees from s^cking d***. Reminiscent of the days she worked at strip clubs and f^ck and s^cked in the Champagne room (ALL VERIFIABLE FACTS).

        Cardi’s a loser and sl^t who is the anti-thesis of what Nicki is. You Cardi fans should really be happy that Nicki is much hated in the industry.

    This why I like streaming, u get to see who the fans STILL listen to. Just like Anti still on the list! U have these uber stars that go number one or ppl rush out out to buy the album and those be the only ones listening. With streaming u get to s÷ who general public likes not radio stations or video hosts the general public. Nicki has never had a number one album and it took her to be a feature for that single! If it were so easy in today’s climates Nicki was never the queen cuz she couldn’t do it with sales or streaming

    • DioraCouture April 8, 2021

      @Bianca: Here’s an honest question…

      What happens if you hear a song on a streaming service’s playlist, but don’t necessarily skip the artist r song… Does that count as a “stream”…or is it only if i go directly to the artist and listen to their stuff???

      I often ask myself that…. b/c i’ll be honest: i usually just put on aplaylist and listen to the randmn stuff

    Congrats

    Music is still trash tho. Her music us just terrible and she doesn’t write her raps. She’s pretending to be someone she is not. Female rap is at a all time low.
