Call it the "Bodak Blow."

For those who wonder how the superstar rapper could pull off a night feat — all this is thanks to their success, "Bodak Yellow".

The chart-topping single was certified 5x platinum by the RIAA in February. Ten track of units equal an album sale, which means that the Invasion of Privacy has moved 500,000 units, based on the strength of "Bodak Yellow".
But, despite "Bodak Yellow of the" monster of the sales, the units do not contribute to the Invasion of the Privacy of the first week sales total.
The early success of the Invasion Of Privacy is essentially the cherry on the top of the Bronx, the rapper of the history year. The past month of September, "Bodak Yellow" dethroned princess of pop, Taylor Swift, from the first place in the Billboard Hot 100, so that the Cardi is only the second female rapper to score a single hit #1 since Lauryn Hill's 1998 track "Doo Wop (That Thing)."
Then, she became the third artist in the Billboard Hot 100 chart history to have their first three singles in the Top 10 at the same time.
On top of all that, Cardi is committed to Migos rapper Offset, will be Saturday Night Live's musical guest on Saturday (April 7) and is scheduled to be the co-host of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon next week.
