Cardi B is making major music award moves!

 

It was announced that Cardi B takes the lead for the 2019 Billboard Music Award nominations.  According to Billboard,  “She’s nominated 21 times across 18 categories and will compete against herself in three: top Hot 100 song, top selling song and top collaboration.”

 

 

In celebration of her nomination news, Cardi posted this video on Instagram (below).  In the video we can hear Cardi say, “I remember when all I ever wanted to do was chart on the Hot 100 charts,  I was like, if I chart, I’m official. Like I celebrated my first charting — when I charted at [No.] 75 — the same way I celebrated my first No. 1 on the Billboard charts.”
