Cardi did, however, took to Instagram to share the good news with her followers. ‘Thank You, Billboard! Now I can bring up the stats, but that will take me all day b****broke records!’ Cardi wrote.
She added: ‘Thank You, Bardigang. Without you all encouraging while the world was against me and criticizing every move, I wouldn’t have gotten here every day and use my voice for a change.’
The mother-of-one was faced with critics who claimed it was shocking to see her win since she had only released a single – WAP. In defense, Cardi B, via her Instagram Stories, hit back at trolls, saying the one single had sold the most as well as streamed the most on TikTok. #TheShowMustBePaused founders – Jamila Thomas of Atlantic Records and Brianna Agyemang will receive an Award titled: ‘Executive of the Year.’
