Cardi said that she was in the process of recording the album while she was pregnant with her daughter Kulture. The process had to be expedited before she started showing signs of pregnancy so that she could shoot for music videos. Cardi also shared that she constantly felt pressured to prove those who thought she would be forgotten after one hit song.

Cardi explained that winning a Grammy or any accolade was not her primary concern while working on this album.

Invasion of Privacy features many high profile guest appearances, like Kehlani, Migos, Chance the Rapper, SZA, 21 Savage, J Balvin, and Bad Bunny among others. The rapper revealed that not all artists were keen to appear on the record, and many turned the offer down. Some even demanded a hefty fee in return.

Cardi will be seen next in the Jennifer Lopez fronted-Hustlers, based on Jessica Pressler's New York Magazine article titled 'The Hustlers at Scores'Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, Lili Reinhart, and Lizzo are also part of the film. Hustlers will have its premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.
