But before the ladies shared the stage, Megan Thee Stallion treated viewers to a bit of her own hits, including “Body” and “Savage.” We also got a taste of Cardi B’s “Up,” which led into the main event.
This also marks Megan Thee Stallion’s first year as a Grammy nominee, entering Sunday’s ceremony with nominations for Record of the Year, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for “Savage” (Beyonce Remix). Oh, and one more little-known category known as Best New Artist — which she won.
Though Cardi B wasn’t nominated for any awards this year, she has a pretty solid track record at the Grammys. Along with her Best Rap Album win for Invasion of Privacy in 2019, she has also been nominated for seven other Grammys, including Best Rap Song (2018’s “Bodak Yellow”), Record of the Year (2019’s “I Like It”), and Best Rap Performance (2020’s “Clout”).
