Cardi B Becomes First Female Rapper, Second Woman Overall To Win BET Awards’ ‘Album of the Year’
Cardi B may not ‘need more press,’ but she’s certainly getting it thanks to the continued history-making success of her debut album, ‘Invasion of Privacy.’
Beyond its enduring status on charts, the set’s helped fill the 26-year-old’s trophy case with a Grammy, American Music awards, Billboard awards, ASCAP awards, and more. With those game-changing captures in her rearview, the ‘Bodak Yellow’ beauty can now color in a new achievement on her list of accomplishments thanks to an ‘Album of the Year’ win at tonight’s BET Awards (June 23).
With the win Cardi’s become the first female rapper to nab the ‘Album of the Year’ honors at the ceremony. The category, introduced in 2017, saw rapper Kendrick Lamar‘s multi-platinum ‘DAMN’ as its inaugural recipient and followed with Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ taking home the trophy in 2018.
