Cardi B Wins ‘Best Rap Album’ At 2019 Grammys
Cardi B’s Cinderella story reached a peak yesterday at the 2019 Grammys.
Cardi first stole the show on the red carpet dressed in a gown from Thierry Mugler’s 1995 fall couture collection with her hubby Offset close by.
Then she took the stage to perform “Money” complete with choreography and a nod to Josephine Baker that had the crowd SHOOK.
Then the big moment happened, Cardi won “Best Rap Album” becoming the first female solo artist to ever win the trophy. She then gave an emotional speech about working hard even through her pregnancy.
“I just want to say thank you everybody that was involved,” said Cardi. “I want to thank my daughter Kulture…I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter. It’s because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. I had, like, three songs I was for sure having. And then you know how it was: We was like, We have to get this album done so I could shoot these videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights. I want to thank all the artists in my—I’m sorry, I don’t got [time]. I want to thank all the artists that took their time and did verses for my album. […] “You, husband, thank you. Nah, seriously, ’cause he was like, you’re going to do this album, girl. We’re gonna have this baby, and we’re gonna make this album. And thank you so much, everybody.”
Go off Cardi. Cardi’s clearly living her dream at just 26-years-old. We’re proud of this regular degular shmegular girl from the Bronx.
More of Bardi’s big night on the flip.
Cardi also graciously said she’s sharing her award with the late Mac Miller.
“I read an article that Mac Miller’s family said that if he don’t win, they want me to win, so I’m sharing this Grammy with you, motherf–ker! Rest in peace!”
After the Grammys Cardi shared a sweet video of Kulture saying “mama.”
