The rapper took to Instagram to address the situation and explained why she chose to not to submit WAP for Grammys 2021 nominations.
“Stop playing with me. As I said, I’ve never pressed for a Grammy, but y’all are not gonna take away something that I know that I worked my a** off that I deserve. If I was pressed for a Grammy I would have submitted ‘WAP‘ for this year and I didn’t submit. I didn’t want to be submitted to award shows until I put out my album because I think my album is so good and it just means something and I worked on it a lot.” Cardi stated.
The rapper continued to say: “I’ve been working on it for almost two years. Some songs are just so emotional to me because I did them during the quarantine. I’m not pressed for anything, but you’re not gonna keep doing this s**t constantly because y’all are upset. Y’all cannot take my success.”
