Cardi B Wins Rhythm & Bars Award at 2017 Soul Train Awards
Competing against the likes of DJ Khaled ("Wild Thoughts," featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller), French Montana ("Unforgettable," featuring Swae Lee), Kendrick Lamar ("Humble") and Yo Gotti ("Rake It Up," featuring Nicki Minaj), Bardi's "Bodak Yellow" took home the Rhythm & Bars award. The trophy is for the Soul Train Awards' equivalent of hip-hop song of the year.
The Rhythm & Bars trophy marks just the latest distinguishing accomplishment Bardi's secured with "Bodak Yellow," a song she released this past summer. The track, with its pulsating trap beat and incisive flexes from the feisty Bronx rapper, has become an anthem for folks everywhere. A little while back, the track ended up at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Around that same time, it was certified platinum.
Other rap luminaries winning big at the 2017 Soul Train Awards were Lecrae and DJ Khaled. Lecrae took home the trophy for Best Gospel/Inspirational Award. For his part, Khaled won Best Collaboration for "Wild Thoughts," the Rihanna and Bryson Tiller-assisted banger from his Grateful album.
Salute to everyone who took home trophies at the 2017 Soul Train Awards, and shoutout to Bardi for continuing her winning ways.
