Cardi B as Amazon's Alexa replacement.

Having beaten Swift to score her first United States number one with "Bodak Yellow" last September, Cardi has now broken Swift's Apple Music record for the most-streamed album by a female artist in its first week.

Invasion of Privacy has already been streamed 100 million times, which is nothing short of impressive, considering this is her first "official" project.

However, it's worth noting that Swift's album "Reputation" wasn't available on Apple Music until three weeks after it initially came out. According to Billboard, Invasion of Privacy beat out Reputation's streaming record before mid-week.

CPI which stood at 5.21% at 17-month high, recorded a growth rate of 5.07% in January 2018 and further to 4.44% in February 2018. The apex bank could have directed the lenders to keep the MCLR below 10% or put a cap on the same for home loans.

Cardi was born and raised in the Bronx, New York and first came to attention for documenting her career as a stripper on social media. A New Yorker who escaped poverty and bad relationships via stripping, she promoted herself through some hilariously bawdy Instagram posts before hitting it big with last year's self-affirming Bodak Yellow.

In a day and age of albums having only one or two good songs, Cardi B delivers a B as in banger.

Cardi B's latest offering, which looks to be a lock-in for this week's No. 1 position, also holds the No. 5 spot on Apple Music's worldwide chart of most streamed albums ever, with the rapper coming in behind the likes of Ed Sheeran's Divide and The Weeknd's Starboy.
