Cardi B beats Taylor Swift's Apple Music streaming record

Cardi B has beaten Taylor Swift to claim an Apple Music streaming record.

The ‘Bartier Cardi’ and officially pregnant rapper dropped her much anticipated and debut album Invasion of Privacy last week.

Since then, the album has raked up an incredible 100 million streams on Apple Music, more than doubling the record set by Taylor Swift’s most recent album Reputation for the most first-week plays earned by a female artist.

Invasion of Privacy is also the platform’s fifth most streamed album of all time. Go, Cardi.

The record follows Cardi’s former success in knocking Tay Swift from the top spot.

In September last year, the rapper’s smash single ‘Bodak Yellow’ climbed the charts to knock Taylor’s comeback single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ from the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

But, don’t worry. There was no ‘Bad Blood’. Ahem.

The ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker sent Cardi a bunch of flowers to congratulate her on the number one, and it seemed to go down very well indeed.

“Sooo beautiful and lovely,” the rapper wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @taylorswift for the flowers… and I freaking love your music.”

Aww. We’re sure another bouquet of flowers are on the way as we speak.
