Cardi B’s Album Went Gold In Less Than 24hrs, Becomes The First Female Artist To Achieve Such
The Bronx rapper has taken the Hip-Hop world by storm in the past year.
Her debut album “Invasion of Privacy” was released last night (April 6th) and in less than 24 hours has already went Gold, she is the first female artist to ever achieve this.
Via The Shade Room:
The project reportedly received the brand new certification due to a technicality, which she can attribute to the success of her mega-hit, “Bodak Yellow,” according to Forbes.
As previously reported, “Bodak Yellow” was certified 5x multi-platinum in Sept 2017. That being so, the Chart Data states that 10 track units is the equivalent of one album sale, which means that her No. 1 single, which is on her album, has already sold 500,000 units, making it gold status.
Past unit sales of the song won’t go towards her first week sales but she still got that gold certification.
Congrats to Cardi B👍
