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.

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

Congratulations 60th #GRAMMYs Best Rap Performance nominees: @BigSean, @iamcardib, @S_C_, @kendricklamar, and…

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.
