Cardi B made history Sunday night with the first Grammy win of her career.

The rapper took home Best Rap Album for Invasion of Privacy, the first time in Grammys history that a solo female artist has won the award. Cardi is only the second woman to receive the honor; Lauryn Hill took home the award as a member of The Fugees in 1997 for the group’s album The Score.
