Invasion of Privacy is the debut studio album by Cardi B and her first project released under Atlantic Records.
On March 11, 2018, while accepting her award for Best New Artist at the iHeart Radio Awards, Cardi revealed that her album was set to drop in April:
My album will be coming in April. Yes sir. April.
Cardi explained the album title and why she named it Invasion of Privacy on The Breakfast Club:
It just came up as a conversation because while I was doing the album, I feel like that’s when my privacy was being invaded the most. There was a story about me, a story about my dude (Offset), it was getting ridiculous and so overwhelming
On March 26, 2018, she revealed both the official artwork and title for the album and eventually the tracklist on April 4, 2018, two days before the album’s release.
On Feb. 10, 2019, Cardi was the first solo female artist to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album with Invasion of Privacy.
