Cardi B The First Female Rapper To Win "Best Rap Album" Grammy

Cardi B The First Female Rapper To Win

An overwhelmed Cardi B won her first Grammy Award on Sunday night, making history as the first solo woman to win best rap album.

Cardi B beat the likes of Travis Scott, Mac Miller, Pusha T to win the best rap album, which is her first Grammy, for "Invasion of Privacy".

She said: "I want to thank my daughter".

Other artists from around the world have also followed suit. Cardi was so shocked when she took the stage, she turned to husband Offset (yup, they've reunited!) and said, "Babe, I can't breathe...whew, chile".

"I'm not just saying thank you because she's my daughter. So it's like, if I don't get one, it means I have to triple the work and I'm going to keep on until I get one". "Maybe I need to start smoking weed", she quipped, to laughs and applause from the glitzy gala set.

During her acceptance speech, Ariana Grande tweeted five times with the words, "what", "f-", "trash", "bulls-", and "literal bulls-". We were like, 'We have to get this done, so I could still do videos while I am still not showing. "It was very long nights". Seriously, he was like, 'You wanna do this album, girl.

Earlier in the evening, Cardi wowed the crowd with a performance of "Money" on a lavish, cushioned, lounge club set.

Packed with behind-the-scenes footage of Offset laying down tracks in the studio, performing on stage for sold-out shows and Facetiming his son, the first half of the teaser gives an intimate look at the rapper's journey to the album.
