Even though we're almost at the buzzer, Cardi B continues to take home wins, further exemplifying how 2018 was the largest year for her career to date.

As revealed by the Recording Industry Association of America, the Bronx rapper has officially had every single track on her Invasion of Privacy album has been certified gold or higher. This new achievement signified Bardi making history once again, as she has now become the very first woman in music to have every single song on a given record be certified at least gold by the RIAA. The album itself has been certified double platinum.

The Grammy-nominated artist took to Instagram to share the exciting news, as well as explain how the milestone adds to the rising pressure for her forthcoming sophomore album.

"BIG MOMMA BARDI !!! Im happy my album is amazing but I got sooo much pressure an anxiety cause I know I gotta kill with my second one," she wrote, sharing a screenshot confirming the news.

Cardi B's breakout single, "Bodak Yellow," has been certified platinum seven times. Additionally, "I Like It," featuring J Balvin and Bad Bunny has been certified five times and "Bartier Cardi," her collaboration with 21 Savage, has been certified two times platinum. The remainder of the tracks have been certified gold or platinum.

With the timing and monumetum on her side, Cardi B is ending the week on a strong footing, sharing the long-awaited visual for her track, "Money."

The visual, which features a couple NSFW moments, was shot in a lavish museum setting and includes scenes of Cardi breast-feeding her daughter Kulture while wearing a couture gown, playing the piano nude and showing off some of the moves she learned during her time working as a stripper. Absolutely stunning and well worth the wait.

Congrats to Cardi B on her recent successes! Check out the video for "Money" below.
