AceShowbiz - Cardi B's debut album "Invasion Of Privacy" has been named the best release of 2018 in TIME Magazine's end of year countdown.
The rap sensation has scored hit after hit with tracks like "Bodak Yellow", "I Like It", and "Ring" from her first studio project, which shot to the top of America's Billboard 200 upon its launch in April.
Now it's also earned her the title of Best Album of 2018.
"Invasion of Privacy delivered - not just on the dark, defensive rap that earned her legions of fans, but also with irresistible hits like the fizzy I Like It, which nods at her Latin roots," editors declared. "Cardi's debut doesn't just earn her a seat at hip-hop's table - it marks her as a singular voice".
"THANK YOU TIME MAGAZINE," Cardi wrote as she celebrated the honour on Instagram.
"Invasion of Privacy" beat Janelle Monae's "Dirty Computer" to the top of the poll, leaving her to settle for second place, ahead of singer Mitski's "Be the Cowboy" at three.
Shawn Mendes' "self-titled" release and J Balvin's "Vibras" place fourth and fifth on the list, respectively, while the rest of the top 10 is made up of Robyn's "Honey", Troye Sivan's "Bloom", "Golden Hour" by Kacey Musgraves, The 1975's "A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships", and "Camila" by Camila Cabello.
Meanwhile, TIME Magazine's film critic Stephanie Zacharek has ranked the best movie releases of 2018, awarding first place to Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma".
