Music (and gossip) fans spent a good deal of time examining Cardi B‘s debut album, Invasion of Privacy, before the set even dropped. Now that it finally dropped on Friday, no need to worry — there’s still plenty to chatter about.

First off, Cardi name-drops both Chrissy Teigen and Rihanna on the song “She Bad” — but not quite the way you’d expect. Let’s just say this call-out leaves room for imagination.


Teigen responded in her typical humorous manner, reacting with amused shock:


Cardi also put to rest the rumor that her single “Be Careful” was a veiled warning to her allegedly unfaithful fiancé, Offset of Migos. 

“No, I wasn’t talkin’ about Offset; I was just talkin’ about things I relate to and that have happened to me,” she said in a Beats 1 interview this week. “First of all, I heard the record before I even was in love with Offset like that.”

In the same interview, she additionally addressed gossip floating around about a possible pregnancy. “People can’t expect me to be open about everything. Certain things, to me, have to be private,” she asserted. “You cannot invade my privacy — I’m not a damn animal at the zoo.”

At any rate, fans seemed to be simply on fire for the set, which is clearly worth everyone’s wait.



Invasion of Privacy features a variety of guest appearances, including Chance the Rapper, SZA, J. Balvin, Bad Bunny, Kehlani, and YG. Cardi B, who became a viral sensation after appearing on reality show Love and Hip Hop, has also been high-profile, adding her touch to hits such as “Finesse” with Bruno Mars, “No Limit” with G-Eazy, and “MotorSport” with Migos and Nicki Minaj.
