Cardi Bags Top Hot 100 Award With 5 Others At The 2019 Billboard Music Awards 

Hip-hop superstar Drake ruled the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, and it wasn’t even close this time around. The Canadian musician added a dozen new trophies to his already-impressive career total, and puts him in a distant first place when it comes to the most wins. The “God’s Plan” singer won a number of coveted prizes, including Top Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album.

Bronx rapstress Cardi B went into the event with the most nominations (21). She walked out of the MGM Grand Garden Arena with 6 trophies, including Top Hot 100 Song (“Girls Like You” with Maroon 5), “Top Rap Song” (“I Like It” with Bad Bunny & J Balvin), and Top Rap Female Artist.

Maroon 5 is in third with four wins, all of which were for their collaboration with Cardi B, the chart-topping “Girls Like You.”

Cardi B spoke with Billboard’s Keith Caulfield backstage at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday (May 1), chatting about her six BBMAs wins, being a mother, and when fans can expect some new music from her.

Speaking of winning the Hot 100 song of the year for her Maroon 5 collaboration “Girls Like You,” Cardi B tells Billboard that it was a struggle getting to be in the video for the track because she was in the middle of making her record and she was trying to hide her pregnancy.

“That’s why I wore that big yellow blazer,” she reveals. “I was just like, how am I going to do these things? And we did all of that, and the song was so successful…I don’t care what people say about me, I don’t care if people like me or not. I have an ear for good music. I know what’s gonna be hot, I know what’s gonna be kind of mediocre, and I was like, yo, this song is gonna be so crazy. And then for me to see it go No. 1, I was like yes! Bingo!”

Cardi B also discusses balancing her music career with being a mother, sharing that while she wishes she could take more time off, she also as to be on her A-game. “My daughter be seeing me and is just be so fun and is so cute,” she adds. “I love her. She’s so special.”
