(AllHipHop News) Even though a select section of the internet tried to "cancel" Cardi B over her three-year-old comments about drugging and robbing men, the Grammy winner continues to dominate the entertainment landscape. Her career just keeps excelling.
Over the last few days, Cardi was announced as the headliner for Hot 97's Summer Jam concert and Jay-Z's Made In America Festival. A sculpture of the Bardi Gang leader is also currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum as part of Spotify's RapCaviar Pantheon exhibit.
Then it was announced that Cardi B scored 21 nominations for the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, the most single-year nods ever for a female artist. Plus, her "Please Me" single with Bruno Mars is the #5 song in the country and her Invasion Of Privacy album is still in the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 after nearly a full year on the chart.
Offset took to social media to praise his wife's recent success. In a series of tweets, the Migos member offered why the Bronx rapstress is so influential in his view. He wrote:
Not talking bout prior female artist talking bout the female artist that come from my wife background. Every bartender stripper with the dream of getting out the club it’s nun wrong with that but my wife help guide ur life to try to rap. all u dumb ass ppl at home on couch tweeting suck my balls not talking bout established artist like the [legends] and the ones before Cardi. The same ones hate are motivated by the wife she did the unbelievable. We rich over here so ya hate don’t get you paid I stand on what I said. Lets make a bet my girl against any artist man or woman.
Cardi B could be adding more songs to her list of Top 40 hits on the Hot 100 in the near future. She's been teasing the release of a track tentatively called "Press" (the Instagram snippet has over 98 million views) and a music video for "Clout" (her most recent collaboration with Offset). The latter record appears on Set's Father of 4 album.
