Moments after Cardi B won best rap album for her debut full-length, 2018’s Invasion of Privacy, she found herself face to face with Gaga, who was all too happy to meet the “Money” rapper and pose for a few snapshots.
The native New Yorkers each performed at the ceremony, in addition to their victory laps up to the podium: Gaga performed “Shallow,” her duet with Bradley Cooper from A Star Is Born that won Grammys for best pop duo/group performance and best song written for visual media. She also won the Grammy for best pop solo performance for “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?).”
Cardi went with new single “Money” for her performance instead of an Invasion of Privacy track and brought a memorable, glamorous number to the program that involved one diamond-spackled piano and plenty of sass — two things hugely relevant to Gaga’s interests.
