"She only made one song," Cardi B said, using a mocking tone as she proudly shares on Instagram that she's been announced the Woman of the Year by Billboard. The rapper has earned the achievement thanks to her one major single hit, 'WAP' featuring Megan Thee Stallion, which sent a whirlwind across the world. The 28-year-old announces that she will be celebrated on December 10 when Billboard's 15th Annual Women in Music Event will be streamed LIVE.
"Now I can bring up the stats, but that will take me all day," Cardi B proudly captioned in an Instagram post.
She uses this opportunity to show haters and criticizes that what they say don't matter.
Her caption wrote, "Thank you, BARDIGANG. Without y’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."
"For you cry babies like, "What? She only got one song." Yeah, I got that song. You know the one that sold the most, the one that streamed the most," Cardi B said in her video. She also mentioned the viral TikTok video of a grandma who used her song.
"So, eat it up. Eat it up with a spoon."
After 'WAP,' she has also launched another major collab with the k-pop girl group Blackpink.
Everything she does, the world eats them up for real. Just a few months ago, Cardi's Club C Women Shoes was launched on Friday, November 13th, and sold out from both the physical and online stores within days. Even her rants about the pandemic, which went viral earlier this year, were remixed into a song that made it Billboard's sales chart.
She also has another collab going on with Brazilian singer Annita titled 'Me Gusta,' which is a remix of the trap track La Bebe. The collaboration also involved Black Jonas Point, Secreto, and Liro Shaq.
