Cardi B, the chart-topping rapper and songwriter, has purchased a $5.85 million home in Bergen County, according to multiple reports.
The 29-year-old recently announced to 116 million followers on Instagram that she and her husband, known professionally as Offset, have "always dreamed of having a crib in NY."
Tenafly will have to be close enough.
"This is one dream I can cross off," the hip-hop artist said in her post. "Let me know if y'all want a mini tour!"
The post included an image of Cardi B in the foyer of her new home, which appeared to be under construction. She stood with her arms raised, between the divided flights of a double staircase.
According to the New York Post, the first to report the real estate transaction on Friday, Cardi B and Offset closed on the property in September. The couple also have homes in Atlanta and Los Angeles, she said in her post.
Their 13,000-square-foot estate in Tenafly has nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a movie theater, a swimming pool and a tennis court, reports say.

Cardi B, who was born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, was raised less than 9 miles away in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.
She rose to stardom on reality TV before signing a record deal in 2017. Since then, she has won more than 150 awards, including a Grammy for her debut album, "Invasion of Privacy," in 2019. She is widely regarded as the "queen" of hip-hop.
Tenafly, with a population of 15,409, has been home to other celebrities, including actor Ed Harris and actress Lea Michele.
Cardi B is no stranger to Bergen County. In July, she celebrated her daughter's birthday at Space Events in Englewood.
