Cardi B makes history with 2019 Grammy for best rap album

It’s been quite a year for Cardi B.

She had a baby in July; announced she had split from husband Offset in December; reunited with Offset in January; and made Grammys history in February.

The rapper, who lives in Atlanta with her husband and daughter, Kulture, won the Grammy on Sunday for best rap album for “Invasion of Privacy.” She is the first solo woman to receive the award. Cardi has been nominated seven times, but this was her first win.

During her acceptance speech, Cardi thanked her husband, who is one-third of Atlanta group Migos.

"You husband, thank you," she gushed. "Seriously, he was like, 'You want to do this album, girl. You're going to have this baby and we're going to make this album."

Offset joined his wife on stage when she accepted the award, and her fans were not happy.


Cardi B went public with their split in early December, The AJC's Stephanie Toone reported. The "Money" rapper, real name Belcalis Almanzar, alluded to multiple instances of Offset's infidelity as the root of their marital problems. In September 2017, they married in a secret ceremony in Atlanta. The nuptials were not made public until 2018.
