Cardi B named Billboard’s Woman of the Year

American rapper, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, popularly known as Cardi B has struck it right with Billboard in 2020 as she is on her to being named the magazine’s Woman of the Year.

She was officially declared the recipient of the annual honor in a cover story published Wednesday, December 2nd.

Billboard listed Cardi B’s support for prominent social causes, her advocacy for voting and the release of her raunchy hit song “WAP” as reasons the rapper had a big year.

“I want to show people that you can do positive things, but you can also be yourself,” Cardi B told the magazine.

During her interview, Cardi B stated that she isn’t afraid to stand up to people when she believes what they’re doing or saying is wrong.

She also spoke about her support for the Black Lives Matter movement and discussed the push for social justice that swept the United States and beyond this year.

“People didn’t go looting because Trump was president — they went looting because there’s a lot of Black men getting killed unjustly

“A lot of Republicans think that we hate the police. Personally, there was a point when I did hate the cops because I had really bad experiences growing up with the cops, but I also met cops that are really good people and have really good hearts. I just feel like we need to hire more people like that.

Her single “WAP,” which she collaborated on with Megan Thee Stallion, was the only song Cardi B released in 2020. It debuted as the fourth No. 1 single of her career.
