Cardi B’s debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, rockets right to No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart in its first week, ratcheting up 12,000+ total consumption units. The mother-to-be celebrated her 13-track winning debut with a killer performance at Coachella this weekend.  Invasion achieved the highest digital song and on-demand stream totals in the week and second best-seller status.


For those keeping score of such things, B is the second artist to pick up a chart-topping entry with a debut release in 2018, following Camila Cabello’s Camila.

LA rock ensemble Thirty Seconds to Mars’ America debuts at 3, picking up the highest selling album score for the week. It is the band’s highest charted album to date, surpassing the No. 6 peak of 2013’s Love Lust Faith + Dreams.
