Cardi B's second full-length album, "Invasion Of Privacy," was released on April 6, 2018, and has quickly put her in the company of platinum female artists like Nicki Minaj and Beyonce. This masterful ode to feminism, surpassing struggle and having a good time has landed the 25-year-old a seat at the table and put more songs on the Billboard Hot 100 at one time than any previous female artist. Cardi B's fame seems to have taken the world by storm, but her journey is far from over and "Invasion of Privacy" tells listeners all they need to know about how she got to where she is today.

From stripper to superstar

Belcalis Almanzar, now known as Cardi B, was born in the Bronx, New York in 1992. According to Time, she struggled to make ends meet before taking a job as a stripper in Manhattan at age 19. In interviews, Cardi B has continuously noted that without having spent four years as a stripper, her life would not be what it is today. She has explained time and time again that this controversial yet lucrative job allowed her to move out of an abusive relationship, support herself for the first time in her life and boost her confidence to the next level.

In more recent years, Cardi B became internet famous through her short punchlines and no-filter attitude. After her rise to fame on platforms like Vine and Instagram, she eventually landed a spot on seasons six and seven of VH1's hit reality show, "Love & Hip Hop: New York." With a growing fanbase and a slow but steady release of singles and a mixtape, Cardi B recently signed a lucrative deal with Atlantic Records.

Invading the industry

Cardi B's first single from the album, "Bodak Yellow," was released in September 2017 and quickly became an anthem for women across the world. Lines like "I don't dance now, I make money moves," display her superstar intentions and journey through hardship while continuing to show how important it is to her to be a successful, independent woman.

Immediately, Cardi B was given support by famous female artists like Nicki Minaj and Missy Elliot, just to name a couple.

Here for a long time, not just a good time

Her next single, 'Bartier Cardi', featuring 21 Savage, was just a preview of the famous artists like SZA, J Balvin and Chance the Rapper that would be featured on the full album.

Cardi B's 13 song masterpiece rose to the top of the Billboard Top 200 just one week after its release. With such a profound list of artists, the album immediately gained attention.

Songs such as "I Like It," "Bickenhead" and "Drip" continue to exude the no-filter side of Cardi B that brought her to the spotlight. Alternatively, tracks like "Be Careful," "Thru Your Phone" and "Ring" show a more sincere side of the star that audiences have yet to meet. In "Be Careful", Cardi alludes to a cheating scandal between herself and her fiancé Offset from the rap group Migos.

With the scandal itself aside, "Be Careful" shows that Cardi B has a strong voice and is not afraid to share it with the world despite the topic at hand.

The chorus demands, "Be careful with me, do you know what you doin'? Whose feelings that you hurtin' and bruisin'? You gon' gain the whole world, but is it worth the girl that you're losin'?"

Cardi B also received praise from Spanish audiences across the glove for featuring long verses by J Balvin in her track, "I Like It." In this true party anthem, Cardi B channels both her crazy and glamorous sides with the opening lines, "Now I like dollars, I like diamonds, I like stunting, I like shining, I like million dollar deals, where's my pen? B**** I'm signin'."

By embracing her diverse upbringing, raw personality and fearless attitude, Cardi B has stunned the world with "Invasion of Privacy." Following the release, she has quickly become one of the most recognized artists in the Hip-Hop/Rap genre. "It's not a threat, just a warning," to be on the lookout for what she does next because whatever it is, it's sure to be a hit.
