The hit-maker proved victorious at the BET Awards before she takes to Marlay Park next month...
Cardi B proved victorious at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards last night, taking home two accolades.
The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper was awarded the Album of The Year for Invasion of Privacy, beating out Travis Scott's Astroworld, Meek Mill's Championships, The Carter's Everything Is Love and Ella Mai's self-titled album.
She also won Best Hip-Hop artist and Migos claimed the gong for Best Hip-Hop Group - the band her husband, Offset, is a part of.
She opened the ceremony in Los Angeles alongside Offset with a performance of 'Clout' and 'Press'.

Cardi B is the Sunday headliner for this year's Longitude Festival taking place July 5-7 in Marlay Park.
She was scheduled to perform at the festival last year but had to pull out as she was expecting her first child.
A$AP Rocky is headlining the Friday and Stormzy has been parachuted in as Saturday's headliner after Chance The Rapper announced he was no longer able to perform.
Unfortunately Chance The Rapper is no longer able to perform at #Longitude2019. We are delighted to announce that @Stormzy will headline the Saturday Night!!! pic.twitter.com/apMLLzLFGZ
