As of September 2017, Cardi B’s net worth has risen at an incredibly rapid rate, making its way to an estimated $4 million as of 2018. Being a newer artist in the music industry, this benefits her with having a higher title so early in her career.
Bodak Yellow’s Success
After her hit song, “Bodak Yellow,” was released in June, her career skyrocketed.
While the song wasn’t a hit until September of that year, it soon hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. After taking its place as number one, Cardi B began working with more significant artists; Migos, Bruno Mars, Rita Ora, and more. In the album, Invasion of Privacy, she once again hit number one with “I Like It,” marking a time of significance in hip-hop. She is the first female rapper to take the number one title twice; nearly back to back.
Cardi B: Important Career Moments
Following the immense success of “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi B gained the title of a household name. She took on a “badass persona,” prideful of her stripper-past and her Bronx origin. In the earlier parts of her fame, she was on the reality show Love & Hip Hop: New York by VH1. Making music on the side, she later decided to undertake music primarily, leaving the reality series in 2017.
Cardi B has made a noticeable mark in female empowerment, being considered one of the most influential and most powerful women in music.
Another significant career moment is when Cardi married Migos member, Offset. They married in a low-profile fashion, making it a huge topic when it was disclosed. Allegations of Offset cheating sparked suspicions and drama, and it was later revealed they were correct.
Cardi’s Early Life
Belcalis Almanzar, better known as Cardi B, started off as a New-York born Latina. Being half Caribbean-half Dominican, she holds her heritage close to her, encompassing a large Latina fan-base.
She was raised in the South Bronx, which corresponds to her heavy accent and prominent personality. Her stripper career is a frequent topic in her music, making her fan-based, dominantly female. Her accent, on top of her provocative language and reputation, cause her music so appealing to millions.
Awards in Music
Cardi B has won many awards, a significant amount for such a new artist.
The rapper has won several BET awards, two iHeartRadio Music awards, a Shorty Award for Best in Music, and a Billboard award for Top Female Rapper.
On top of all these tangible awards, Cardi has won the dedication of a massive fanbase, as well as the respect of many older artists in the hip-hop genre. Not just that, but Cardi managed to obtain a platinum record with her first hit of many, the iconic “Bodak Yellow.”
Ever since reaching the top, Cardi B has been a rising star with no limit. Collaborating with musical legends, winning handfuls of awards in just months, and empowering so many listeners day-by-day, she’s become such a success in such a short time.
Who knows where Cardi will be in a couple of years?
But I think it’s something along the lines of: “And I just checked my accounts. It turns out, I’m rich, I’m rich, I’m rich.” – Cardi B, Bodak Yellow.
