She said that she kept her health problems aside to focus on producing the best album possible.

A search for her username on the platform yields results of many fan pages as opposed to her verified account.

Minaj said Monday on social media that she won't perform at the concert or BET Awards. I remember past year when everyone was saying Cardi got snubbed but now there's a problem? "I worked hard for my motherfucking album". Number 1 album as well.

Cardi B.is also the first artist to have all of the songs off of the album rank high on the music charts.

"I can't thank you guys enough for all the love & support you continue to show me", she tweeted.
