CARDI TALK: Album Review & Other Successes

The past few days have been magical for Cardi B. She has been killing music game for the past few months and now it came to a full circle this past weekend.

On Friday, she released her first album titled Invasion of Privacy, and guess what?? It went GOLD in the same DAY. By gold, that means she’s sold or “moved” 500,000 units of her album, but there is a slight catch to that. According to Forbes, her single “Bodak Yellow” went certified 5x-multi platinum in September, which we all heard, but just on the strength on Bodak Yellow’s success, she’s moved 500,000 units of her album already!! PLUS “Bartier Cardi” her second single just earned platinum certification as well, which is 1 Million units. So Cardi’s album won’t be shy of a plaque at all, even without the her singles booming on the charts. I’ve listened to the album at least 5 times PLUS the radio stations have been playing her whole album too; so if her album sales aren’t out of the roof, IMMA BE PISSED!

Now let’s talk about the album…DOPE. DOPE. DOPE. And I’m not just saying that because I love her. Honestly, I was getting tired of her putting out all these songs and featuring on songs WITHOUT an album coming, but she made the wait worth it. She starts out her album with the song “Get Up 10” which was a Meek Mill “Dreams & Nightmares” vibe with the storytelling lyrics. She then has a song with Migos of course, with the song “Drip”, another banga! FEATURES FEATURES FEATURES. Cardi’s features on this album were “BRAZY”. Besides Migos, she got with Chance The Rapper for the song “Best Life” which is a more positive upbeat song. Then, she got my girl Kehlani on a song called “Ring”. She also collaborated with YG for the song “She Bad”, and last but not least….”I Do” featuring SZA, another dope record. I love the sense of women getting together and sticking together, especially with the constant competition and negativity that everyone wants to bring with it.

Cardi sampled a couple of records and made them sound just as fire as the original song. Starting off the first sample on the album, “Bickenhead”, this was sample from Project Pat “Chickenhead” which I definitely remember as kid. Another sample was “I like it” from the original song “I Like It Like That” by Pete Rodriguez, which is a Latin song that she channeled her roots in, being Dominican of course. Then, as stated before, she took the flow of Meek Mill “Dreams & Nightmares” on her first song on the albums.

Now, rumors have been circulating with her being pregnant over the past few months. She FINALLY showed off her belly during her performance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. A video circulated of her came out of her after her performance on SNL, of her saying “I’m finally free.” By that, she’s free from hiding her pregnancy and she can finally embrace it instead of hiding it in shame. She’s been compared to Lauryn Hill because she had a baby in the middle of her career and of course she was the first female rapper to top the billboards with no features with ‘That Thing (Doo Woop) and here we are, years later, Cardi did the same thing with Bodak Yellow. Ironic ehh.

Many other artists have congratualed on her pregnancy and album release including 50Cent, Rihanna, EVEN OPRAH! 

All in all, I’m sooooooooooo proud of her. From the strip club to being Instagram famous, to Love & Hip Hop New York, to being number 1 on the billboard chart to having a dope ass album! I love it and I love how her success has soared. 

GO BARDI CARDI!!!

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 5

My Proudest Moment

I’m kind of hard on myself. To me, my proudest moment would be marrying my best friend or birthing my first child. I guess there are others things I can consider like graduating with my Masters, Getting my dream internship at the radio station.

Personally, another good thing to be proud of is not letting things get to me anymore. Not everything deserves a reaction. Not letting people get the best of you and eliminating yourself from someones presence or a situation before letting them get you out of character. I think I’m most proud of those things. I use to be so antsy and disruptive over the little things when really, inside, I was and still kind of am a shy person. I use to react so quick and end up looking stupid for overreacting. NOW, I’m chill, but I’m moreso goofy than anything. I have an array of personalities (not in a crazy way) lol but I’m overall a better person than what i was in my early 20s and even prior.

Welp, uhhhh that’s all I got for this challenge!

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 4

MY DREAM JOB…

It’s a toss up between being a successful business owner involving my blog, and or being an entertainment news host. I guess I could combine the two.

With my blog, I would like to interview celebrities, individual in the entertainment industry about their work and brand in general. Something more positive about entertainers in the industry versus the same typical gossip. If anything, I would like to take their stories and branch them out into a larger topic.

That’s all I got for y’all.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 3

Day 3 Challenge is: Favorite Quote.

This is a hard one but I have a few:

You are never as good as they say and you’re never as bad as they say you are”   –Charlamagne Tha God

 

It is what it is, and it ain’t what it ain’t”      –unknown

 

Build a bridge and get over it

   –unknown

The quotes I like are typical “get over it and move on.” Growing up, my momma let me have my way and when the time came when I couldn’t have my way, like in my adult life, I didn’t known how to deal with it. I had to mold myself into dealing with the mishaps and getting over it. Never expect anything from anyone, never be surprised by someone’s actions. No one is “obligated” to give you anything. You have to work for it. If you don’t get your way, it may not have been meant to happen. It probably wasn’t in God’s plan for you, as cliche as that sounds lol.
