Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar (born October 11, 1992), known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper. Born and raised in New York City, she became an Internet celebrity by achieving popularity on Vine and Instagram. From 2015 to 2017, she appeared as a regular cast member on the VH1 reality television series Love & Hip Hop: New York, which depicted her pursuit of her music aspirations. She released two mixtapes—Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 (2016) and Vol. 2 (2017), before signing with Atlantic Records in February 2017.

Her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy (2018), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, was certified triple platinum by the RIAA, and was the best-selling female rap album of the 2010s according to Billboard. Critically acclaimed, it made Cardi B the only woman to win the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album as a solo artist, and became the first female rap album after 15 years to be nominated for Album of the Year. It spawned two number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Cardi B became the only female rapper to achieve a Diamond-certified song by the RIAA with "Bodak Yellow", which also made her the second female rapper to top the chart with a solo output—following Lauryn Hill in 1998, while "I Like It" marked the first time a female rapper attained multiple number-one songs on the Hot 100. It was followed by her feature on "Girls Like You" with band Maroon 5. She has released two singles from her upcoming second album, with the chart-toppers "WAP" (featuring Megan Thee Stallion) and "Up". Cardi B is the female rapper with the most number-one singles (5) on the Billboard Hot 100, also holding other records among women in hip hop, such as being the only to achieve number ones in two decades (2010s and 2020s), and the only to achieve multiple number ones with solo songs.

Cardi B is known for her aggressive flow and candid lyrics, which have received critical praise. She is the highest-certified female rapper of all time on the RIAA's Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking, also appearing among the ten highest-certified female artists. She is the female rapper with the most songs with a billion streams on Spotify, where she also has the most-streamed female rap album, and is the first lead artist to top the inaugural Billboard Global 200. Her accolades include a Grammy Award, eight Billboard Music Awards, five Guinness World Records, five American Music Awards, fourteen BET Hip Hop Awards and two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year awards. In 2018 Time magazine included her on their annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2020, Billboard honored her as Woman of the Year.
