    There is no denying this is Cardi B's freaking year.

    First she made it to the top of Hot 100 with "Bodak Yellow," making her the first solo female rapper to dominate the chart since Lauryn Hill in 1998!

    Cardi B going #1 feels like a win for all of us. We did that. I’m singing Bodak Yellow to every Black person I see.

    Then her boyfriend, Offset, proposed to her onstage at her concert with a ring that is probably triple the cost of my student loans.

    And now "Bodak Yellow" has officially been nominated for two Grammys: Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

    Because Cardi B was not actually credited as a writer on "Bodak Yellow" she won't get to take home a Grammy if it wins Best Rap Song, but it's still incredibly impressive.

    To say her fans were excited to hear the news is a gross understatement. Twitter blew the hell up.

    Of course, a few people wished she was nominated in a few other Grammy categories.

    From dancing, to making money moves, to two Grammy noms? Love her or hate her, you've got to admit Cardi B is on her shit this year.
