Cardi B Made History at the 2019 Grammys.
Cardi B went home with the Grammy award for Best Rap Album, becoming the first solo artist that is a woman to win the honor.
“My nerves are so bad! Maybe I need to start smoking weed,” she joked at the top of her speech before going down her list of thank you’s. When she arrived at her daughter’s name, she paused.
“I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter,” she explained. “When I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. We were like, ‘We have to get this album done so I can shoot these videos while I’m still not showing.’ And it was very long nights.”
Other winners from the big night included Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” for Record of the Year and H.E.R.’s “Best Part” featuring Daniel Caesar for Best R&B Performance.
