Caridi B’s Invasion of Privacy: From Rags to Ratchet Riches
social media. Her audience became less like fans and more like her best friends viewing her relatable posts daily and engaging with her while she engaged back, something artist seldom did in past times.
Her big break happened in 2017 with the release of her first single “Bodak Yellow.” This song, filled with a riveting beat and catchy lyrics captivated all of the world climbing charts and breaking records. This marked Cardi as a legitimate force in the music world! Since then, we have watched her make what she calls “Money Moves” for months securing promotions, sponsorships, and endorsements. Performing alongside big-name artists and being featured on primetime network tv, Cardi has shown how to leverage a bad situation and make it the BEST life.
The release of her album “Invasion of Privacy” takes us on a journey through her hardcore street rap with old-school New York flavors, matched with some sweet ballad style R&B influences and even some Spanish influences. With features from the likes of Chance the Rapper, Migos, Kehlani, and other big stars, this full body of work is one worth listening to. With hits like “Dripping”, “Money Bag”, “Bartier Cardi” she gives us inspiration to be saucy all summer long!
Her story is one that’s not only admirable but one each and every person can learn from. Cardi B is winning and because of her hard work and resiliency, she is finally seeing the fruits of her labor. A dancer in NYC with a great sense of humor and charm is now America’s sweetheart.Truly an example of rags to ratchet riches. I love to see the underdog win, and I’m excited to see what’s next for Cardi and Baby Bardi!
