Kehlani Confirms Collaboration With Cardi B At Billboard Women In Music Awards
Kehlani and Cardi B’s wishes to hit the booth have finally been fulfilled.
On Thursday (Nov. 29) the “Distraction” singer shared the big news before Billboard’s Women In Music event. “We have a jam on her album, it’s so good.” she said on the pink carpet. “I love her. I can’t say anything else, but she’s incredible, she worked hard for it and stayed humble.”
The two officially met last year during Kehlani’s interview with Nessa of Hot 97, where they discussed body shamming in hip hop and the importance of women supporting each other.
“I was a fan before “Bodak Yellow” so I was really tripping out,” the singer added. “I followed her on Instagram for so long and just watched her be hilarious and really be herself.”
The ladies are both up for Grammys next year with Cardi earning a Best Rap Performance and Best Rap/Sung Performance while Kehlani scored a Best R&B Performance nod for “Distraction.”
Kehlani is taking home the Rule Breaker award for Billboard’s Women In Women event.
“At the end of every day, you’re just going to have more anxiety if you don’t do what the f**k you want to, even if it’s in the most minor way,” she told Billboard. “That’s just why I’m so extra.”
