It’s pretty much safe to say at this point that Cardi B’s debut album Invasion of Privacy is a cultural sensation. Cardi has seemingly received co-signs from everybody, from rapper Logic, to Rihanna, all the way to Oprah Winfrey. That, plus a strong commercial start and seemingly unanimous critical praise of the album has made Cardi B the rapper to talk about.
And people have been talking, online especially. Billboard has crunched the numbers on Cardi’s online impact, and it’s big. Since Invasion of Privacy‘s release last Friday, there have been a whopping 2.6 million tweets about Cardi. Considering she has just under three million followers on Twitter, that’s a pretty significant buzz.
Of the specific songs on the album, the public favorite appears to be her track “I Like It,” which features Bad Bunny and J Balvin. The runner up appears to be “Be Careful,” which received a lot of initial buzz due to the impression that the song’s lyrics were about Cardi’s fiancé, Offset.
In terms of the most used emojis used in relation to Cardi, she’s got a nice line up. Number one on the list is the fire emoji, which is always an excellent sign if you’re a rapper who just dropped an album. Also notable are the “sparkling stars” and baby emojis, which are likely a result of Cardi’s recent pregnancy announcement.
If these Twitter statistics are any indication, Cardi B clearly has the support of the public, as if we didn’t already know that.
