Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” Wins Favorite Song Rap/Hip-Hop at 2018 American Music Awards
Cardi B needs to make more room in her trophy case. The Bronx MC won big at the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday night (Oct. 9). Her breakout single "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" earned the award for Favorite Song Rap/Hip-Hop.
The 2017 single proved to be Bardi's coming out party and cemented her as possibly the next big female rapper when it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and eventually reached platinum status. Before the AMAs were over, Bardi earned two more awards for Favorite Artist Rap/Hip-Hop and Favorite Song Rap/R&B ("Finesse"), bringing her total to three. Cardi got more love during the show when Tracee Ellis Ross payed homage to the "Be Careful" rapper with a dance routine over her music.
Offset's better half also stole the show with a rousing performance of her hit song "I Like It" with Bad Bunny and J Balvin. Offset himself also took home an award with Migos for Best Pop/Rock Group.
Post Malone also had a big night winning two awards himself. The "Rockstar" rapper won Favorite Album Rap/Hip-Hop for Beerbongs & Bentleys and also took home the trophy for Favorite Male Artist Pop/Rock, beating out Drake and Ed Sheeran. He also performed his hit song "Psycho" alongside Ty Dolla Sign.
Following his 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards win for Best New Hip Hip Artist, XXXTentacion's 17 was honored with an American Music Award for Favorite Soul/R&B Album. Peep the full list of winners.
