M.A month ago, the prestigious Billboard magazine announced that this year’s winner of the Women of the Year award is none other than Cardi B. The rapper has also become the star of their latest issue dedicated to women in music.
Cardi B will officially receive its award during the Billboard Women in Music gala, which will take place on December 10. The purpose of the event is to honor “Women in the music industry who have made a significant contribution to business and who, through their work and continued success, inspire generations of women to take ever greater responsibility in this field.” This year’s Billboard Women in Music will be the 15th ceremony. Throughout the history of the gala, the Women of the Year award was received by, among others, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish and Selena Gomez.
“Billboard” decided to distinguish Cardi B for her political commitment, activism during the presidential elections in the United States, her flair for business manifested in her latest shoe collection for the Reebok brand, and above all for this year’s mega hit “WAP”, which conquered the Internet and lists hits around the world.
Of course, as is usually the case with Cardi B, many boarders didn’t like the fact that she was hailed as Woman of the Year. The rapper decided to respond to the wave of dissatisfaction caused by this in social media. “To all those who complain and say, ‘What? She only released one song! ‘ Yes it’s true, but I released THIS song “ – she said during Instagram Live.
