Cardi B Becomes 1st Female Rapper To Receive Songwriter Of The Year
Congratulations to Cardi B! The chart-topping rapper took home the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Award for the first time. She is now the first female rapper to receive this honor, which recognizes the songwriter who has written or co-written the greatest number of most-performed songs of the year. Cardi took the music world by storm with her 2017 breakthrough “Bodak Yellow” and continued to dominate the charts with hits such as “Bartier Cardi” (ft. 21 Savage), “Ring (ft. Kehlani),” ”I Like It” and more.
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) celebrated its unparalleled roster of music legends, past and present, at the 34th annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. The event recognized special honorees and the songwriters and publishers of the most-performed ASCAP songs of the past year on the R&B/hip-hop, rap and gospel charts.
Congratulations to her!
