In addition to her political activism and endorsement deals, Cardi shattered chart records with her Megan Thee Stallion-assisted hit "WAP", which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with 93 million US streams, the biggest ever for a song in its first week of release.
Outside of WAP - which co-stars Megan Thee Stallion and spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart - this year Cardi B appeared on K-pop girl group BLACKPINK's Bet You Wanna and Brazilian singer Anitta's Me Gusta.
"For you crybabies who are like, "but she only got one song", yeah I got that song, bitch", she said in a video message on Instagram. "You know? The one that sold the most, the one that streamed the most". The one that had republicans on Fox News crying about it. She goes on to shatter her critics in her typical dissing style and says, "The one that had your grandma popping her pu**y on TikTok". Yeah, bitch. That one.
She also outlined how she's used her platform in other ways in the past year, specifically by working with politicians like Bernie Sanders and President-elect Joe Biden.
She said that for over a year, she has been influencing and using her platform for people to vote, not just when Joe Biden was going up against Trump. "I've been informing y'all about your senators, I've been informing y'all about districts and midterm elections". Flying out, exhausted after shows. Cardi then closed her video by telling her critics that she "won't ever change".
