The Grammy winner adds another accolade to her history-making résumé.

Invasion Of Privacy is already the longest-charting album by a female rapper in the history of the Billboard 200 chart. Cardi B’s debut studio LP continues to rack up honors five years after its release.

For the fifth anniversary of Invasion Of Privacy, the Recording Industry Association of America officially certified the project as 4x-Platinum. The Atlantic Records-backed body of work debuted on April 6, 2018.

In addition, two singles off Cardi B’s Invasion Of Privacy earned higher RIAA certifications this week. “Be Careful” is now 4x-Platinum. “Ring” featuring Kehlani reached the 3x-Platinum mark.

Cardi became the first female artist to have every track on an album go Platinum. Invasion Of Privacy‘s “Bodak Yellow” (11x-Platinum) and “I Like It” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin (11x-Platinum) have both surpassed Diamond certification.

“Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage is 3x-Platinum. Cardi B also picked up 2x-Platinum Awards for “Thru Your Phone” and “I Do” featuring SZA. The rest of the songs on the IOP tracklist scored Platinum plaques.

Invasion Of Privacy made music history in other ways. Cardi B is the only solo female rapper to win the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. She achieved that accomplishment at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019.

Plus, Invasion of Privacy is the first album by a female rapper to host two No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and two RIAA-certified Diamond singles. “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It” peaked at the pinnacle of the Hot 100.

Cardi B heads into the next few months with a couple of live gigs booked. The Bronx-bred entertainer will headline Rolling Loud’s inaugural festival in Thailand next week. Hot 97 also tapped Cardi to top the bill for the NYC radio station’s Summer Jam 2023 concert.
