Bronx rapper, Cardi B, has just released her first full-length studio album titled, Invasion of Privacy, and I am honestly shocked with how much I enjoyed listening to it. This album comes in at 13 tracks in total, each feeling fresh and unique. It is apparent that Cardi poured all that she had into this album and let me tell you, it was all worth it. This isn’t just some half-assed trap album, this is an album filled with great beats, entertaining verses, and awesome features. Some of these features include Chance The Rapper and SZA, which both are very established in the industry.

 

The real strength of this album is Cardi B’s heavy flow over hard trap beats. This really comes into play on the track “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage. On this track, Cardi absolutely decimates the beat. The way she changes her inflections as she raps sounds powerful, making this track very entertaining. An issue that some people may have when listening to this album is that some of Cardi's raps are goofy,  which might be a turnoff for some listeners. This is barely an issue though because I highly doubt people were expecting deep lyricism on this album. If you were one of the people looking for Cardi to produce meaningful raps, you aren't really going to find them here. 

 

Overall, Invasion Of Privacy is a really fun album. Cardi takes pride in her goofy ways and truly embraces it, making this one of the most entertaining trap albums of 2018. If the track “Bodak Yellow” released last year wasn’t your cup of tea, I would recommend you give this album a try anyway. There is a lot of solid bangers on here. If I were to rate this album on a scale from 1-10, I would give it a solid 8/10. Check this one out.
