Another royalty share has become available from Cardi B’s 7x Platinum global smash “Bodak Yellow” and “Moneybag” included on her Grammy-winning Invasion of Privacy album and including "Lick" from her Gangsta B**** Music, Vol. 2, Mixtape. Do not miss out on an opportunity to collect royalties from this record-breaking catalog!

Officially released in June 2017, “Bodak Yellow,” is the lead single from Cardi B’s debut, double Platinum album Invasion of Privacy. The record-breaking, chart-topping hit put Cardi B on the map and solidified her standing as one of the most popular artists of 2018. “Bodak Yellow” was also nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. The track brought in 86% of last year’s income.

Also featured on Invasion of Privacy, certified-Gold track “Moneybag” contributes to 10% of earnings in the last 12 months. It's worth noting, all tracks featured on the album itself, including “Moneybag,” were certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA, making Cardi B the first-ever female artist to accomplish such a feat.

Lastly, the track “Lick” rounds out the remaining 4% of earnings. Released to Cardi B’s second mixtape, Gangsta B**** Music, Vol. 2, the mixtape itself peaked at No. 25 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart.


Streaming & Hip-Hop. This catalog is a perfect example of two trends: hip-hop and streaming's growth worldwide. According to BuzzAngle's 2018 Year End Report, hip-hop is the most popular genre of music in the U.S. The driver for the increase is streaming. Hip-hop/rap tracks accounted for more than a quarter of all on-demand plays on music streaming services in the US in 2018. Streaming accounts for 48% of this catalog’s earnings over the last 12 months.

Cardi B. To say Cardi B is an enormously popular artist is an understatement. She's a trailblazer for female hip-hop artists with a global following. In a short time, Cardi B has earned three No.1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and seven top 10 hits.

At one point in 2018, Cardi B had five Top 10 singles on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop at the same time, making her the first woman to do so, beating Beyoncé’s previous record of four. Cardi’s album Invasion Of Privacy (which features “Moneybag”) was the first debut album by a female rapper to receive an Album of the Year Grammy in nearly 20 years. Invasion Of Privacy also claimed the No. 1 slot on both Rolling Stone and Time’s "Best Albums of 2018.”

She has received an additional six Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, nine BET Hip Hop Awards, and a Billboard Music Award.

Most recently, Cardi B is set to appear in the film Hustlers, alongside Grammy-nominated artist Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, and others. The film will debut in theatres on September 13th, 2019. Cardi B's track "Money" is featured prominently in the trailer. Her acting debut draws discovery among new fans and re-engages existing followers.

New Release. Cardi B just released a new track titled “Press” in May 2019, and it has already received more than 43 million views on YouTube. While the new song is not included in this auction, new releases can help boost an artist's back catalog. The release of new music draws discovery among first-time listeners and re-engages existing fans.
