Today is the five-year anniversary of one of rap’s most impactful albums, Cardi B’s Invasion Of Prihttps://vacy. And despite the album being five years old, Cardi says she still makes “millions” of dollars from it — which probably helps explain the delay for its follow-up. In a video posted to her Instagram Story, Cardi celebrated the fifth anniversary with a bottle of champagne and a cake from her team, boasting, “I’m still getting booked for millions of dollars with one muthaf*ckin’ album!”
Over on Twitter, meanwhile, Cardi’s fans have been celebrating with a bracket of favorite tracks, which is currently in its semifinals stage. As of press time, “Bodak Yellow,” which got a bye until the quarterfinals, is up against the fiery intro “Get Up 10,” while the underrated second single “Bartier Cardi” is paired with the emotional “Be Careful.”
