The rapper may have had one of the biggest songs of the years, but admits she wasn't 'pressed for a GRAMMY.'
In an Instagram Story, Cardi explained why she didn't submit the mega-hit for consideration.
"Like I said, I never pressed for a GRAMMY, but y’all not gonna take away something that I know I worked my *ss off [for], that I deserve," she told her followers. "If I was pressed for a GRAMMY I would’ve submitted ‘WAP’ for this year and I didn’t submit it. I don't want to be submitted to award shows until I put out my album because I think my album is so good."
She added that she's been working on her new album for almost two years, noting, "Some songs are so emotional to me because I did them during quarantine. I'm not pressed for nothing."
After releasing "WAP" over the summer, the track went number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Good f**king morning! I just woke up and look motherf**kers. Look, look, look! Billboard Hot 100 number one! 'WAP' debuts at 93 million U.S. streams, the most for a song's opening week in history," Cardi excitedly exclaimed in a video, reading off tweets with the impressive stats. "WAP' debuts number one on digital song sales chart, with the biggest sales week of 2020."
