Cardi B is living out one of the most exciting stories in the history of music.
The "Money" rapper is the most nominated female artist of the 2019 Grammys, with a whopping five nominations for her debut album Invasion of Privacy. Her nomination includes two in the top four awards of the night, like the prestigious Album of the Year category and Record of the Year category for her song “I Like It." Her song "Be Careful" was nominated for Best Rap Performance and she also snagged one in the Best Rap Album category and in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her song with Maroon 5 “Girls Like You.” What a year it's been for Cardi, and 2019 seems just as promising.
The day the nominations were announced, Cardi was on her way to court.
The rapper arrived early Friday morning for her scheduled arraignment hearing at a Queens court in New York City in regards to the assault charge case she is facing from a strip club fight that took place earlier this year. She posted an Instagram video of the moment a reporter gave her the good news about her five nominations. "What a way to find out i got 5 Grammys nominations😩😩😩I’m tellin you my life is a movie," she captioned it. "I work my ass off for this!Win or not atleast i know i had a chance and people was watching and admiring my work.Im Soo happy! THANK YOU!"
Camila Cabello proved that she is a force as a single artist.
The former Fifth Harmony singer took a risk and left the girl group to pursue a solo career. The risk paid off since she is now a two-time Grammy nominee after the Cuban and Mexican songstress snagged nominations from her debut album Camila. She received a nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance for her hit song "Havana (LIVE)" and the album was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album. The "Never Be the Same" singer reacted to the news on Twitter writing, "GUYS I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS !!!!!!!! GUYS GUYS GUYS !!!! NOMINATED FOR TWO GRAMMYS!!!!!!!! WE DID IT !!!!!!!!! 😭😭😭." Well deserved!
