Cardi B Makes History At The 2020 American Music Awards

Doja Cat, The Weeknd, and Nicki Minaj won multiple awards at this year’s ceremony.

Back in 2019, Cardi B became the first solo female rapper to win the Best Rap Album award at the Grammys. Earlier this year, she became the first woman to win ASCAP’s Songwriter of the Year award two years in a row. Last night, the Bronx-raised entertainer made history once again.

Cardi’s “WAP” single featuring Megan Thee Stallion was named Favorite Song – Rap/Hip Hop at the 2020 American Music Awards. This makes Cardi the first act to win that honor twice. “Bodak Yellow” took home the same award in 2018.

Thank you guys soooo much. Me and Meg really appreciate all the love from fans, celebs everybody that supported the song. Also thanks for voting. Ugh if I would have known all this was going down today I would of rescheduled my dentist appointment. I’m so swollen,” tweeted Cardi on Sunday night.

“WAP” won the AMA over DaBaby’s “Rockstar” featuring Roddy Ricch and Roddy Ricch’s “The Box.” Compton’s Ricch did win Favorite Album – Rap/Hip-Hop for his debut studio LP Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
