Cardi B's debut album Invasion of Privacy is finally here, setting the record straight about her rapid accomplishments and her never-ending hustle. Borne to fame through viral social media posts, some continued to question as to whether she had more than an attitude and a hit single in her: here, Cardi’s explosive personality translates flawlessly into confidence-saturated rhymes about hardships, love and success.

‘Get Up 10’ is essentially Cardi’s ‘Started from the Bottom’ (though it may remind some of a certain Meek Mill intro, B has a knack for deftly borrowing flows) where she narrates her grind from working fast food jobs to stripping and her now merited career as a rapper. Cardi tells her critics that her journey filled with setbacks that only made her fiercer- “I don’t trust no n**ga I don’t fear no bitch, whole life been through some fucked up shit.”

‘Drip’, featuring Migos - including, naturally, Cardi’s fiance Offset - delivers as the first track with a feature on Invasion of Privacy. Spitting verses visualizing jewels and riches, Cardi, Offset, Quavo and Takeoff’s track will undoubtedly be heard all summer in crowded clubs, a predestined anthem. This leads into one of the hottest showcases of Cardi’s lyricism, ‘Bickenhead,’ a song that delivers flow so promising that it could easily be the next ‘Bodak Yellow’ (which still hits just as hard here as it did as a single, in spite of its age.) These two tracks back-to-back are certainly two of the strongest on the album; cementing Cardi’s strength and radiating power at the height of her fledgling career. As the world put Cardi under a magnifying glass, she responded with a surprisingly cohesive, fully-realized album while holding her head up that much higher.

Cardi’s (alleged, denied, wink) response to Offset’s infidelity, ‘Be Careful’ speaks on her insecurities and disappointment: “chillin’ poolside, living two lives. I could have did what you did to me to you a few times.” Pouring her heart out to her audience, Cardi’s song will radiate through the hearts of let down lovers everywhere. Moving into ‘Best Life,” the feel-good bop of the album, fitting guest Chance The Rapper proudly shares the space with Cardi and calls attention to her hard work: “she count money in her sleep and she don’t ever spend the night. But she trappin’ and she had to make it happen for her life.”

Though the media constantly pins Cardi against successful women in her field, tracks ‘Ring’ and ‘I Do’, with Kehlani and SZA respectively filling in for the same character in different moods, are the epitome of a femme fatale dynasty. Kehlani and Cardi call out flakey lovers and demand to be treated with respect on ‘Ring.’ The chorus drifts through Kehlani’s bright yet sultry vocals with verses rightfully slayed by Cardi: “What’s a good girl? Watch me turn diva. Here goes my heart, I put it on speaker.” The cherry-on-top finale to end a legendary debut, ‘I Do’ features SZA and Cardi rightfully stepping into the spotlight that they created: “I think us bad bitches is a gift from god” spits Cardi - as her opening line on the track. And to those that especially doubted Cardi’s talent, she pushes them aside with ease, leaving with,“They said by now that I’ll be finished, hard to tell. My little 15 minutes lasted long as hell, huh?”
