Grammys 2019: Cardi B Makes History, Wins Best Rap Album For ‘Invasion Of Privacy’

Cardi B took home the Grammy award for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards which held in the early hours of this morning, becoming the first solo female artist to win in the category.

For the most part, male artists have won every year since Best Rap Album became an annual Grammys category in 1996, with the group Naughty by Nature named the first winners. Prior to Cardi B’s win, the only other woman to win got her award in 1997, when the hip-hop group Fugees, which included Lauryn Hill, won Best Rap Album for The Score.

With a victory for her 2018 album Invasion of Privacy, Cardi B not only becomes the first woman to win best rap album as a solo artist but also takes home her first ever Grammy win.
