Cardi B accepts the award for Best Rap Album with ‘Invasion Of Privacy’ onstage during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles.
The five LPs up for best rap album at the 2019 Grammys constituted a stacked category: Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy, Mac Miller’s Swimming, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, Pusha T’s Daytona and Travis Scott’s Astroworld. But Cardi B managed to nab the honor in the highly competitive category with her smash debut.
When the award was announced, Cardi freaked and hugged Offset, grabbing him by the hand and guiding him up to the stage with her.
“Babe I can’t breathe,” she said after taking the stage. “The nerves are so bad — maybe i need to start smoking weed.”
In addition to industry folks, Cardi thanked her child with husband Offset. “I want to thank my daughter. I’m not just saying thank because she’s my daughter. When I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. I had three songs I was for sure having. And you know how I was. We had to have this album done so I could shoot these videos but I’m still not showing. It was very long nights.”
Though Lauryn Hill nabbed the best rap album award in 1997 as part of the Fugees for The Score, Cardi B is the first solo female to win best rap album at the 2019 Grammys.
Twitter Is Legit TRASHING Offset Right Now and He May Never Recover
So, last night Offset showed up with Cardi B at the Grammys. And they touched tongues on the red carpet, which was a lot! But, there was so much more to come—none of which impressed fans. Not only did Offset make this face during Cardi’s performance as the camera kept cutting to him, ugh:
He debuted footage of his wife giving birth during a promo for his album:
And he inexplicably showed up on stage with Cardi when she won:
AND he kept wandering into her photos:
Like…DUDE CALM DOWN. Naturally, all of this extremely thirsty behavior borders on spotlight-stealing, and Twitter was deeply unimpressed. Get ready:
