History-making Hip-Hop icon, Cardi B, has released the highly anticipated video for hit track, “Be Careful” off her #1 debut album “Invasion of Privacy.” The video, directed by Jora Frantzis, is the follow up to last month’s video for “Bartier Cardi (feat. 21 Savage)” directed by famed artist Petra Collins, which has since amassed over 19 million views. “Invasion Of Privacy” instantly broke records with the biggest ever first week streams for a debut album and female artist as well as topping the Billboard 200 chart, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, Top Rap Albums and Top Digital Album charts. The acclaimed album entered the record books at the 5th largest streaming debut of all time. Additionally, last night saw Cardi B take home the award for Top Rap Female Artist at the Billboard Music Awards.
“INVASION OF PRIVACY” – which includes the 5x RIAA platinum certified classic, “Bodak Yellow,” alongside the platinum certified smash, “Bartier Cardi (feat. 21 Savage),” standout favorites like “Be Careful” and “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin and a spectacular lineup of featured appearances from Chance The Rapper, SZA, Kehlani, Migos, and YG – has drawn critical acclaim around the world to match its remarkable popular success. “INVASION OF PRIVACY” “is lavishly emotional, intimately personal, wildly funny,” announced Rolling Stone in its four-starred rave. “Still, there’s no question whose album this is. Funny, fierce, foul-mouthed and in-your-face, “Invasion of Privacy” is one of the most powerful debuts of this millennium,” declared Variety. “The 25-year-old’s debut album shows off her hard work, versatility and ambition, mixing quick-jab rhymes with the enthusiasm and charm that have made her a star,” raves The New York Times. Pitchfork summed it up best: “Cardi B’s remarkable debut places her, without a doubt, in the pantheon of great rappers. It is both brazen and vulnerable, filled with wild amounts of personality, style, and craft.”
The 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstar recently made her stunning Met Gala debut alongside designer and friend Jeremy Scott. Furthermore, Cardi celebrated the arrival of “Invasion Of Privacy” with a number of high profile TV appearances and performances, first joining host Chadwick Boseman as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, followed by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she served as both musical guest and the first-ever co-host in show history. In addition, Cardi appeared as a guest on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Cardi B is now getting set to embark on a series of hugely anticipated live concert performances, which kicked off with her debut at Indio, CA’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
