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.

Cardi was also featured on different tracks by diverse artists, starting with her appearance in BLACKPINK’s Bet You Wanna, Anitta’s song Me Gusta and in the remix by Anuel AALa Bebe.

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.
