NEW YORK -

Amazon is in its prime. The company revealed Wednesday that it has 100 million Amazon Prime subscribers and growing. In a letter to shareholders, CEO Jeff Bezos said the company shipped 5 billion products through its Prime service last year, and signed up more new users than at any point in its 13-year history. 

Tough times for Tesla. The automaker's workplace safety conditions are under investigation by California regulators following a report that claimed Tesla under-reported the number of injuries at its factory. According to Cheddar, the news comes as CEO Elon Musk is looking to double production of Model 3 vehicles. 

There's a new queen bee in the house - Cardi B just broke two of Beyoncé's records. With the release of her album "Invasion of Privacy," the rap artist broke Beyoncé's Billboard record for most songs simultaneously on the top 100 chart. Thirteen of Cardi B's tracks are currently on the list, surpassing Beyoncé's 12 with the release if her album "Lemonade" back in 2016.
