- Cardi B's international hit song, WAP featuring Megan Thee Stallion, will not be winning any Grammys at the next awards show in 2021
- The singer and her team did not submit the track for Grammy consideration, which had die-hard fans disappointed
- Cardi will reportedly be submitting it for the 2022 Grammys in order to coincide with the release of her next album
Fans of Cardi B's hit-single WAP feat Megan Thee Stallion were disappointed to learn that the song would not be taking home any trophies at the 2021 Grammys. The track has been a global hit but has no chance of winning a Grammy because Cardi and her team did not submit it for consideration.
Some interpreted the news as a complete mistake and thought that Cardi B had accidentally missed the submission window and cost her work a nomination. That would have been a tragedy since the song broke a streaming record in its first week of being released and is undoubtedly one of the hits of the year.
But, as with many moves in the music industry, it seems keeping it out of the Grammy-race was a strategy.
Variety.com reported that the rapper decided to instead submit WAP for consideration in the 2022 Grammy Awards season. The decision was supposedly meant to coincide with the release of a new album that Cardi will be dropping around the same time and build hype for that.

As disappointing as the news that WAP would be out of the spotlight was, Cardi B fans were only too excited to learn that her second album was on its way soon.
The Kardashian family member gifted the American rapper with a gorgeous and very pricey Birkin bag.
Cardi gushed about the bag which is said to worth over N4.6 million.
