Cardi B Reveals Why She Didn’t Submit ‘WAP’ For 2021 GRAMMYs

Published: Saturday 28th Nov 2020 by Ryan

Cardi B is not sweating her lack of nominations for the 2021 GRAMMYs.

In fact, the ‘Bodak Yellow’ rapper revealed on Instagram Live the reason as to why ‘WAP’ did not appear on the nominations list and it was intentional.

Her words below:

“Like I said, I never pressed for a Grammy, but y’all not gonna take away something that I know I worked my *ss off [for], that I deserve.” 

She went on to reveal that if she:

“…was pressed for a Grammy I would’ve submitted ‘WAP’ for this year and I didn’t submit it. I didn’t want to be submitted to award shows until I put out my album because I think my album is so good.”

While Cardi did not appear on this list of nominees this year, her ‘WAP’ collaborator, Megan Thee Stallion, received several nominations in the major categories such as Best New Artist and Record of the Year.

Previously, Cardi won the coveted Best Rap Album at the 2019 GRAMMYs for her debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy.’ 

Her decision to leave ‘WAP’ out of consideration until she releases a body of work she is proud of is certainly understandable.

Simply put, more power to her for putting her art first. But what are…

Your thoughts?

    Her decision makes no sense and was very selfish to the other artist on the song (Megan).

      If she submitted WAP, this song with compete with megan’s own song savage remix in the rap categories and in the main categories.
      Both songs will probably split the votes,

      Megan is probably gonna win a Grammy or 2 for savage remix at the 2021 Grammys

      When cardi submits wap , megan in going to be nominated again at the 2022 Grammys.

        She won’t be able to submit it next year. The song gained prominence during the season of this next years award ceremony

    Cardi will win another Grammy in a couple of years and Nicki will still only be able to brag about her 5 BET awards

    So thankful to her writers and the artist that are making her new album.

    • Danny Bey November 28, 2020

      She and Megan are the only writers listed on WAP not including the producer. You sound dumb af

      • Jason November 28, 2020

        😂 she doesn’t write s***! Delusional!

      • Danny Bey November 28, 2020

        You know because you be in the studio? Y’all sound so stupid

  6. Pat November 28, 2020

    Well. She’s not thirsty or pressed for the lime light. It will be hers when she’s ready

  7. Charli+Cheer+Up November 28, 2020

    I think its an industry business strategg from her camp and Megan’s so that Savage has a shot at taking home the awards. Fair play to her if that’s the case 👏🏽 the song doesn’t even need a music video to get to #1
