Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy”

Every time Cardi B's "I Like It" comes on the radio, I turn up the volume and bounce to the beat in my seat. How can you not with fun lyrics like: "They call me Cardi Bardi, banging body, spicy mami, hot tamale"

Plus, the song samples the 1967 song from Puerto Rican singer Pete Rodriguez "I Like it Like That" (go to about 40 seconds in the video and it will sound familiar). And, "I Like It" features Columbian reggaeton singer, J Balvin, who's single "Familiar" with Liam Payne peaked at number 13 on Billboard's YouTube chart. 

"I Like It" is on Cardi B's Album Invasion of Privacy which also includes her Billboard chart topping "Bodak Yellow."  With the success of "Bodak Yellow" and "I Like It' Cardi B is the first female rapper to achieve multiple chart-topping songs and the album has gone platinum.
