Cardi B celebrated the 2nd anniversary of her first album, Invasion Of Privacy with an announcement that she’s dropping a second album this year! The rapper, 27, who won a Grammy for her debut album, shared the good news alongside a post recognizing the success of Invasion Of Privacy. The album is officially 3x platinum.

“Happy Birthday Miss INVASION OF PRIVACY,” she captioned the post, calling the latter album “my first baby.” Cardi, who recorded her first album while pregnant, released it before the birth of her 1-year-old daughter, Kulture. While at home in quarantine, Cardi said she’s “workin on her sister so I can birth her this year.” The rapper went on to express her gratitude to her fans, writing, “Thank you everybody who support and still supports my album. Till this day is charting on Billboards 200.”

Cardi’s post contained a photo highlighting the successes of each individual track. “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It” (featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin) went platinum respectively, nine and eight times — the most of all her songs on the album. The song, “Bardier Cardi” (21 Savage) went 3x platinum, with the tracks “Be Careful” and “Ring” (ft. Kehlani) both earning a double platinum badge. Her songs “Best Life” (ft. Chance The Rapper), “Drip” (ft. Migos) , “Get Up 10”, “I Do” (ft. SZA), and “She Bad” (ft. YG) are all platinum certified. Meanwhile, the tracks that went gold include, “Thru Your Phone”, “Bickenhead”, and “Moneybag”.
