– Cardi has become the first ever female solo artist to win the best rap album award at the Grammys
– The award is her first Grammy and 7th nomination
– She was the only female in the category beating out Pusha-T, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle, and even the late Mac Miller
– In her acceptance speech she joked: “Maybe I need to smart smoking weed,” because of how nervous she was
– Earlier in the night she gave an electrifying performance of her hit single money

Cardi B tonight continued her winning streak at the 61st Grammy awards by becoming the first ever solo woman to take home the Best Rap Album award for Invasion Of Privacy. The award is her first ever Grammy win.

The emotional high point of the night for Cardi who also blew the minds of millions around the world with her performance of her single ‘Money’ was when she was announced as the winner of the coveted gong. She looked absolutely stunned as she won in the male-dominated category beating out Pusha-T, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle, and the late Mac Miller.

Earlier in the night, the Money crooner made sure all eyes were on her with an Oyster inspired Terry Mugler vintage dress from 1995

The 26 year old who was tremendously happy and overwhelmed by the award climbed the stage with her husband Offset ( yes they are back together and  ‘trying to make things work’). She joked in her acceptance speech:

“I can’t breath. Oh my goodness. The nerves are so bad!”

Adding with a laugh, she continued:

“Maybe I need to smart smoking weed.”

She then gave a heartwarming shout out to her baby girl Kulture, gushing,

“I want to thank my daughter. I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter, it’s because when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete.”

“We were like, ‘We have to get this album done so I could still do videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights,” she continued.

Cardi welcomed her first child with Offset in July 2018. In the months leading up to the delivery of the child- Kulture, Cardi continued to perform and promote Invasion of Privacy, which debuted at No. 1 on the charts.

Before receiving her award, Cardi blew audiences around the world with an electrifying performance of her hit single 'MONEY'
