Cardi B

Cardi B

Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, made her breakthrough debut in the late 2010s with a quick ascent to the top of the rap and pop charts. Her first run of singles made her the first female rapper in nearly 20 years to top the billboard hot 100 with the hit ‘bodak yellow’.

Born and raised in The Bronx she became an internet celebrity after several of her posts went viral. It is somewhat fair to say Cardi B's whirlwind to stardom happened after she issued her Grammy-nominated, critically acclaimed debut album in 2018, ‘Invasion of Privacy’, which reached number one and broke additional records with her summer hit, “I Like It”, making her the first solo female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album. 

Delivering raw, aggressive lyrics in the tradition of of artists like Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj the former stripper and social media star made her first television appearance in 2015 on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, which she quit to pursue her music, which soon paid off after getting signed to Atlantic records in 2017.

Since her debut album Cardi B has only continued to climb to the top. By 2018 she was crowned as the first female rapper to have her first three entries land in the top ten of the of the Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts.
