Winning! Cardi B is now Grammy nominated
Cardi B is officially having the greatest year ever.
Nominations are in for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, and the breakout star raked up noms in two rap categories.
The Bronx rapper’s history-making Billboard No. 1 hit “Bodak Yellow” is nominated for Best Rap performance and Best Rap song.
This is a major feat for the 25-year-old reality star turned rapper who rose to fame as a social media personality and cast member of “Love & Hip-Hop: New York.” What’s more is that Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, hasn’t yet released her debut album.
In February, Cardi signed a multi-million dollar recording contract with Atlantic Records. “Bodak Yellow,” her debut single, went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. She became the first female rapper to achieve this feat since Lauryn Hill—which was nearly 20 years ago.
