Cardi B’s ‘Invasion of Privacy’ Set for No. 1 Debut on Billboard 200 Album Charts, Will Become Only Fifth Female Rapper To Do So

Posted April 7, 2018

The Cardi B reign continues, as the Bronx bred rapper’s debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy‘ is set for a no. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot 200 album charts, and she is making history in the process.

Cardi B is bound for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart with her first studio album, Invasion of Privacy, according to industry prognosticators. Early forecasts suggest the set — which was released April 6 via The KSR Group/Atlantic Records — could start with between 160,000 and 210,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 12. That sum should easily enable the set to debut atop the chart dated April 21.

The first-week forecast for Invasion has a wide range because the album has only been available for one day. As the week progresses, the forecast will narrow to a more specific starting span.

If Cardi B bows at No. 1, she’ll become just the fifth female rap artist with a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, and the first since 2012. She would follow Nicki Minaj (with Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded in 2012, and Pink Friday in 2011), Eve (Let There Be Eve… Ruff Ryders’ First Lady, 1999), Foxy Brown (Chyna Doll in 1999 and the collaborative album The Firm in 1997, with Nas, AZ and Nature) and Lauryn Hill (The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, 1998).

The news comes just hours before Cardi is set to perform on SNL tonight and will reportedly make her official pregnancy announcement on the show. Kudos to Cardi on all the continued success!
