Cardi B Wins Her First Grammy, For Best Rap Album
Cardi B won her first Grammy! She took home the Best Rap Album trophy for her 2018 debut Invasion Of Privacy at the 61st Grammy Awards tonight, beating out Mac Miller’s Swimming, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, Pusha T’s Daytona, and Travis Scott’s Astroworld. She is the first female solo artist to win Best Rap Album.
Cardi took the stage with her husband Offset, with whom she recently reconciled after a brief separation, to deliver an emotional acceptance speech. “When I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete…It was very long nights…You, husband, thank you. Nah, seriously, because he was like, ‘Nah, you gonna do this album, girl. We gonna have this baby and you gonna make this album.'”
Earlier in the evening, Cardi B performed “Money” wearing a leopard print catsuit surrounded by a group of dancers carrying giant fans. She received five nominations at this year’s Grammys; she’s still up for Album Of The Year and Record Of The Year (for her summer smash “I Like It”). Watch her acceptance speech below.
