THE TOP 20 INVADES YOUR PRIVACY

Cardi B will score the second largest debut of 2018 and the first by a female artist. Her album, Invasion of Privacy, could also log the second-highest streams (after Migos) of any album thus far in 2018 with 160 million-plus. It also seems we'll see two Elton John tribute sets in the Top 20: one pop and one country.
