Have you heard of the next Beyonce? Cardi B first became famous after posting a single that hit No.1 in the music billboard. Because of her background, Cardi has become more popular and her new album has made her a hit. Cardi has reached a goal in her life, and will only go up from here. From the Bronx to Fame, here comes Cardi!

Cardi B has been talented throughout her life, and is influenced by her childhood. Cardi was born Belcalis Almanzar to a Dominican father and a Trinidadian mother. Her hispanic heritage has always been special to her. In the song “I Like It (Explicit)” featuring Puerto Rican Rapper Bad Bunny and Columbian lite-reggaeton star J Balvin, this heritage is clear.  Cardi B came from Washington Heights in the Bronx, and was born there. In 2017, everyone in the Bronx started noticing Cardi and posting her, then eventually she posted her No.1 song Bodak Yellow, which started her career. During one of her recent concerts Cardi announced to her audience the she was pregnant, at the age of 25. Later in the show Offset, Kiari Kendrell Cephus, proposed to her. During that concert, the USA started posting so many things and started going crazy.

From these beginnings, Cardi has achieved national fame. Cardi B’s fame is on the rise. In March 2018, she had an estimated net worth of 4 million. Since "Bodak Yellow," Cardi B reached a new stage in her life and continued to make new songs. She currently holds 1 album called Invasion of Privacy, which includes 11 songs. These songs are successful because they each have a meaning to them. She didn’t just write them for no reason. The songs “Best Life”, “I do”, and “Thru Your Phone” are a perfect examples of this. In “Best Life” and “I Do” she raps about these two guys, Lil’ Kim and Too Short. In “Thru Your Phone” she raps about being convincingly broken by an untrustworthy partner. Cardi B has become the fifth most popular female artist in the USA.

Cardi B has recently came out with a new 2018 album called Invasion of Privacy. Cardi has five singles in the album. Get up ten, bicken head, ring, money bag, she bad, I do, thru your phone, and Be careful (Explicit) her 3rd ever single in her new album.  She also has songs featured with different rappers. These include "Drip" (with Migos and Offset), "Best Life" (includes positive thinking and features Chance the Rapper), and "I Like It(Explicit)" (featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin). This is an excellent song which reworks “I Like It Like That,” the boogaloo classic by Pete Rodriguez. Cardi has clearly come far in her singing career and hopefully she will get farther in her career.  

Cardi’s fame has become unstoppable. She started in the Bronx and she’s making her way up, with rising celebrity and a great new album. As Cardi always says, “It doesn’t matter where life takes me or what life gives me. Imma be the way I am til the day I die.”
