Her massive success with the release of WAP featuring rap sensation Megan Thee Stallion has positioned her at the top, however online users were quick to attack the singer and claimed she “only got one song,” and was unworthy of the title.
The 28-year-old rapper took to Instagram to shut down all the criticism, calling “crybabies” to everyone coming for her, and explaining that not only was she “about to be six times platinum in three months,” referring to her music success.
But she also highlighted how she had been “influencing and using her platform” for everyone to vote in the presidential elections, “informing y’all about your senators,” and “midterm elections,” adding that she had been using her “own money to meet up with these candidates like Bernie.”
Cardi will be celebrated during a virtual ceremony on December 10, at the 15th Annual Women in Music Event.
Among the rest of the artists included in the awards there’s also Jennifer Lopez, set to receive the Icon Award, Dolly Parton and Dua Lipa with the Powerhouse Award and Chloe x Halle receiving the Rising Star Award.
