Cardi B: Invasion of Privacy Review

On April 6, 2018 former Love & Hip Hop: New York star Cardi B (Real Name: Belcalis Almanzar) released her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, by Atlantic Records. The Internet went absolutely insane! Within hours women were thanking Cardi B for this summer's Instagram #hashtags she's provided or in their feelings talking shit to Offset (Cardi B's Fiance) suspecting he inspired lyrics to breakout singles such as Be Careful.

In 2017 Cardi B's Bodak Yellow made history by breaking Billboard Hot 100 charts and almost securing a Grammy. Besides Bodak Yellow, the female hip-hop artist quickly became a household name by featuring on fast-selling tracks such the Migo's Motorsport and Bruno Mars' Finesse. Since then, the Bardi Gang has grown to be a genuinely supportive fan base and includes celebrities ranging from Denzel Washington to Oprah Winfrey.

Top Invasion of Privacy Songs:

Although, I do enjoy a few tracks- I must admit I feel like Cardi B rushed Invasion of Privacy's process, especially given its lack of quality. I know the public has a strong desire to support Cardi B, but I have to be honest with my interpretation. When Bodak Yellow and Bartier Cardi ft. 21 Savage hit the local radio stations I was excited by the lyrical commitment and the new energy offered.

In fact, in past interviews Cardi explains how she writes her own music and actually wrote Bodak Yellow herself. She continues by informing the audience her lyrical writing reflects her natural way of speaking (The Bronx). I wonder why she didn't use this technique for Invasion of Privacy? I believe her excessive use of writers shows a lack of connection that can be heard throughout the albulm. Be mad. Call me a hater, a Nicki Minaj fan or whatever. But truth be told, I did the research. Most female hip-hop artist who have produced albulms in the past

Why did she rush? Was is due to her pregnancy? Her talent and potential is obviously there, but it needs to be crafted and worked on slowly. For example, I did not learn trombone over night it took years of practice

Though, something I've noticed since Cardi B's increased A-List celebrity status is how quickly she arrived there. From Love & Hip Hop: New York to the Coachella in the blink of an eye. Has any new artist receive this much respect and love from the media, other celebrities and public? I cannot recollect of any and I find it odd. With the many female hip-hop artists whose passion reflects the time they have spent perfecting their art, why haven't they been treated the same (i.e. Dej Loaf, Kash Doll, or even Remy Ma)?

Why is America obsessed with women that exploit themselves or those who may have a lighter skin tone?

In my honest opinion it seems the music industry (Atlantic Records) needed a female artist to compete with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B entered the spotlight at the right time to try to fulfill such a desire, especially having a previous following from Love & Hip Hop: New York.

nearly as great as the media and public are making it seem.s

I'm not saying the albulm is terrible....but it's not
