More good news to seal off Cardi B‘s stellar year: Her 2018 album, Invasion of Privacy, is reportedly the most-streamed female rap album in Spotify history. According to Twitter account @chartdata, Cardi’s debut effort surpassed 2.8 billion streams on Sunday, December 29 after more than a year on the charts. It looks like these streaming numbers were particularly driven by her hit summer single “I Like It” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin — which boasts 975,177,852 streams alone at the time of writing.

This news comes only days after impressive touring data for Cardi’s Invasion of Privacy arena tour was released to the public. Out of 11 reported shows, two grossed $1,237,368 and $1,141,276 in sales respectively, with over 24,683 tickets sold collectively. Cardi B acknowledged the achievement earlier this weekend in true boss fashion, writing “STOP PLAYING WITH ME” on Twitter.

These massive accomplishments weren’t only means for celebration; Cardi also took them as an opportunity to tease important music news for the year ahead. After news broke of her Spotify streaming record (which, for perspective, beat out Nicki Minaj’s record for The Pinkprint at 1.8 billion streams), the 27-year-old rapper hinted that her new album is ready by asking followers: “Ya ready for my second album ?” And obviously, our answer is a resounding yes.
