Cardi B just made history at the Grammys tonight by being the first woman to win Best Rap Album as a solo artist, according to The New York Times. The Bronx rapper took home the gold trophy for her 2018 album Invasion of Privacy, which features tracks including the chart-topping “Bodak Yellow” and her popular single “Bartier Cardi.” The record is also Cardi’s debut album.

With her husband Offset by her side, Cardi held back her tears as she accepted the prestigious award. In her acceptance speech, she especially thanked her daughter Kulture:

“I’m not saying thank you because she’s my daughter, it’s because… you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. I had like, three songs that I was for sure having, and then you know… you know how it was (laughs). We was like, ‘we have to get this album done so I could shoot these video while I’m still not showing.’ And it was very long nights.”

The artist also gave thanks to her collaborators including SZA, KehlaniChance the Rapper and Migos.

Below, take a look at some of the best fan reactions to the emotional moment on Twitter. For more from the eventful night, see the full list of winners at the 61st Grammy Awards here.
