1. Cardi B – Invasion of Privacy
This is the #1 album the world is talking about today. Cardi B has finally released her debut album after the mammoth success of hit singles like “Bodak Yellow” and “Bartier Cardi“. The 13-track album contains expected features such as Migos (hey fiancé Offset, hey) and YG. There are also some surprise collabs with the likes of SZA, Kehlani, Chance the Rapper and J Balvin.
Hearing it for the first time, this album is everything we’ve been expecting from Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar. She comes out swinging on the first track “Get Up 10”, breaking down exactly who she is, where she came from and what she’s about to do with her newfound fame. This album contains the trademark Cardi B hip-hop and trap club joints the world is thirsty for, but she’s thrown in some other flavors along the way.
“I Like It” for instance samples the classic latin song “I Like It Like That” by Pete Rodriguez and features Bad Bunny and J Balvin. A crossover latin hit waiting to happen. Shout-out to Cardi’s little experiment on “Be Careful” with the singing and the Lauryn Hill reference. Cute. Overall, this album is very bop-worthy. It’s Cardi’s world right now and we’re just living in it. *shmoney shrug*
