Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, is among the brightest rap artists who earned Grammy, 4 American Music Awards plus a vast number of other trophies. She even set a record by being the first solo female rap artist to gain Grammy for best album.
Initially, Cardi B was a stripper. Her path to music fame started with popularity on social media and her participation in reality show Love & Hip Hop: New York. In 2015, she turned into a full-time music artist. Having already 2 mixtapes, Cardi B finally presented her debut album titled Invasion of Privacy in 2018. It reached 3-time platinum certification.
Besides, the artist is famed for her collaborations with top musicians such as J Balvin, Bruno Mars, Jennifer Lopez, Maroon 5 and Rita Ora. Her duet with husband Offset titled Clout was nominated for 2020 Grammy.
Additionally, Cardi B tried her hand at acting in Hustlers movie and Being Mary Jane TV series. She created a clothing line collaborating with Fashion Nova while Tom Ford named a lipstick after her.
In early 2017, Cardi B got romantically involved with rap artist Offset. They secretly tied knots on September 20, 2017, but no one knew about that till the summer of 2018. Moreover, on October 27, 2017, Offset popped the question right at their concert in Philadelphia. In 2018, they welcomed a daughter named Kulture. Later in December, Cardi and Offset called it quits but reconciled pretty soon.
By the way, the celebrities’ secret wedding took place in their bedroom and Cardi’s cousin was the only witness. Cardi later shared that she wanted to keep that moment for herself and that’s why they kept their marital status secret for some time. However, the couple still plans a wedding and it’s most likely that it will be rather extravagant.
A curious fact: the artist’s stage name Cardi B is a shortened version of her nickname Bacardi, inspired by a rum brand. At the same time, her sister is named Hennessy after the French cognac.
