Cardi B’s “Invasion Of Privacy” Is Already GOLD

Cardi B's debut album #InvasionOfPrivacy came out at midnight, and it's already certified gold. According to Chart Data, the immediate certification is thanks to "Bodak Yellow," which had already reached 5x multi-platinum status. . "'Bodak Yellow' has 5m units certified by the RIAA," Chart Data explained via Twitter. "Because 10 track units = 1 album sale, the album has 500k+ units. These units will not be included in official first week numbers." . A similar situation happened with Drake and "Hotline Bling," which appeared on Views months after it was released. Still, according to a press release, this slight technicality makes Cardi the first woman artist to achieve gold certification on her record's release day. .
