At the AMAs, held in Los Angeles on Nov. 22, she became the first artist in history to win Favourite Song in the Rap/Hip Hop category at the AMAs twice.
Cardi was previously awarded the title in 2018 for her hit single ‘Bodak Yellow,’ and returned to the AMAs stage (virtually) to take home the prize again for her song ‘WAP‘ with Megan Thee Stallion.
Although unable to attend the awards show in Los Angeles, Cardi took to Twitter to share her appreciation to fans who voted for her and Megan’s track.
The rapper posted an audio only video, accompanied by a quick caption ‘Thank you guys soooo much. Me and Meg really appreciate all the love from fans, celebs, everybody that supported the song,’ she wrote. ‘Also thanks for voting. Ugh if I would have known all this was going down today I would of rescheduled my dentist appointment. I’m so swollen.’
Megan Thee Stallion was there to accept the award on both of the artist’s behalf from presenter and Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox. The Houston rapper told the crowd she and Cardi were ‘super appreciative’ of the award and gave an adorable shoutout to her grandma watching at home
