Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy has been named TIME Magazine's album of the year.
The rapper, hailing from Bronx, New York, is behind several Billboard Hot 100 tracks, including the bold and brash single off her debut album, 'Bodak Yellow'. The hit propelled her into upper-echelon stardom, winning several accolades such as Favourite Song Hip Hop/ Rap at this year's American Music Awards.
2018 has been a tremendous year for the rapper. Just a week after the album dropped in April, it hit number one on the Billboard 200 chart, making her the fifth female rapper to do so. And it doesn't stop there. It is TIME magazine's album of the year.
"Invasion of Privacy delivered—not just on the dark, defensive rap that earned her legions of fans, but also with irresistible hits like the fizzy “I Like It”, which nods at her Latin roots. Cardi’s debut doesn’t just earn her a seat at hip-hop’s table—it marks her as a singular voice," cited the magazine.
Shawn Mendes' self-titled album, Honey, Robyn's first album in eight years and Camila Cabello's Camila are among those TIME Magazine picked for its list.
