Cardi B Graces the Cover of 'Billboard's Year in Music 2017 Issue

This year has been a successful one for the rap star.

This year has been a tremendous success for rapper Cardi B; Billboard revealed that the Bronx native was one of its cover stars of “The Year in Music” 2017 issue.

On her cover, Cardi dons Christian Louboutin knee-high boots, Balmain and Versace onset in Los Angeles. The cover star shares the highlights of her monumental year, one is holding the number slot of the Billboard ”Hot 100.” Her reign at the top of the charts with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” lasted three weeks long. The only other hip-hop female artist to do so is Lauryn Hill with Doo Wop (That Thing) in 1998.

On walking in the footsteps of Lauryn Hill Cardi shared with Billboard:

“Lauryn Hill is like a goddess. For me to be in the same sentence with her, and one day a new female rapper to be in the same sentence with me.”

Undoubtedly her die-hard work ethic has gotten her to her spot in the hearts of hip-hop fans. 2017 has been filled with career-making moments for Cardi. This year alone she won five BET awards, was featured on the Migos‘ “Hot 100” hit “Motorsport” and more. To top it all off she even got engaged to Migos’ Offset, who gave her a custom ring worth $550,000 USD.

When speaking about wanting more for her future family she shares:

“This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working.”

To read her interview in full, head to Billboard.
