Cardi B released her Invasion of Privacy album in the wee hours of Friday morning and by Friday afternoon it has been certified Gold. The gold status is based upon the numbers game. Without getting too technical, because Bodak Yellow is on the album and that song is already 5X Platinum, she gets a tenth of that credit for album sales. Gold status is 500,000 copies. There you go!
Cardi B's album was certified gold 12 hours after it was released. That's how you drop a debut 👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/eOgcIK5p7m— Hugh McIntyre (@PopBangHugh) April 6, 2018
