Born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, she became an Internet celebrity by achieving popularity on Vine and Instagram. She made her debut in the late 2010s with a quick ascent to the top of the rap and pop charts.

After an initial run of singles that crowned her the first female rapper in nearly two decades to top the Billboard Hot 100 with the hit “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi B issued her Grammy-nominated, critically acclaimed debut album, 2018’s Invasion of Privacy. It follows her first and second full-length projects, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 and Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2, released on March 7, 2016 and January 20, 2017 respectively.

Editors from Variety and The New York Times called Invasion of Privacy “one of the most powerful debuts of this millennium” and “a hip-hop album that doesn’t sound like any of its temporal peers,” respectively.

The album entered at number one in the United States, while she became the first female artist to chart 13 entries simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100, on the chart issue dated April 21. It also became the most streamed album by a female artist in a single week in Apple Music, and the largest on-demand audio streaming week ever for an album by a woman.
