Cardi B's debut album Invasion of Privacy is finally here. The record includes the singles "Bodak Yellow," "Bartier Cardi," "Be Careful," and "Drip." It also has a number of surprise features from SZA, Chance the Rapper, Kehlani, J. Balvin, Bad Bunny and YG alongside previously released collabs with Migos and 21 Savage.
The album is built around Cardi’s rags-to-riches story and her desire to shut down any one-hit wonder talk with braggadocious cuts like the Project Pat-sampling “Bickenhead,” “Money Bag” and the Migos-assisted “Drip.” If there’s one thing Cardi has mastered in the past year, it’s the ability to align herself with the crème de la crème of music. From hip-hop to Latin’s top-tier acts, an impressive array of stars come out to play on Invasion of Privacy.
Bardi recruits Chance the Rapper for “Best Life” -- a finger-snapping earworm beefed up with thick drums and a breezy backing piano; she salutes her Trinidadian and Dominican roots on “I Like,” which reworks Pete Rodriguez’s classic “I Like It Like That” into a booming trap-inflected banger, with a little Latin flavor peppered in by reggaeton royalty Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
