(She wasn't nominated for any awards this year, nor did she attend Sunday's ceremony).
And she accepted the trophy with signature, unfiltered charm.
She said she was 'offered 3 different songs.it's about collaboration.it's about feeling supported.it's about art and honesty'.
Cardi further added that she worked really hard on her album despite being 7 months pregnant and was very deserving of the win. "I'm thankful and grateful and again thank you to all the artist that gave me a feature".
Cardi originally posted two rants in defence of her win, one of which was deleted before she took down her whole account, and was an expletive-filled video in which she said she was "sick" of being dragged down.
"Hey, America, washpoppin'?" she said in her intro video for the show. We know you're pregnant.
It was a bold gamble given her lack of experience, but her love of spectacle and fast-talking style helped ensure it paid off.
Cardi B's win for Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammys was historic - but not without controversy. In truth, a vacation from social media never hurts, especially for someone as popular as Cardi.
After being named the Grammy victor at the 61st annual ceremony, Cardi accepted the trophy alongside her Migos rapper husband, 27.
Her tour kicks off March 13 at the Beach Bash Music Festival at Isla Grand Resort in South Padre Island, Texas. As of Monday afternoon, her name still appears on BET Experience's official site, as does that of another co-headliner, one who-perhaps tellingly-is slated to perform on a different night: Cardi B.
However, he she wasn't performing due to time restraints.
Cardi B and Offset split at the end of past year, following a string of allegations Offset had cheated.
