Cardi B's Grammy Finally Arrived In The Mail
Cardi B just got a lovely surprise in the mail while in quarantine: her Grammy award from 2019! On Wednesday (May 13th), Cardi posted a video on her Instagram story, showing off the shiny trophy she won a year-and-a-half ago at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. In the clip, Cardi opens the box while indicting that “I just received my Grammy to the right house.” Engraved on the plaque below the golden gramophone are Cardi’s name and the title “Best Rap Album – 2018,” which she won for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy.
Cardi’s win last year was a historic one for the ladies. She became the first solo female rapper to be honoured with the prestigious award. The last female rapper in general to take home the trophy was Lauryn Hill, as part of The Fugees, who won for their album, The Score, more than two decades earlier in 1997.
Since then, Invasion of Privacy has gone on to break a number of records for female rap albums. It became the longest-charting debut for a female rapper at 92 weeks, beating Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which spent 91 weeks on the charts. After spending 8 more weeks on the charts, IOP also became the first female rap debut to chart for 100 weeks straight.
