LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cardi B has made history as the first woman to win the Grammy Award for best rap album.

The rapper won for her album "Invasion of Privacy." She delivered much of her acceptance speech holding on to her husband Offset.

She was clearly overwhelmed at the win, pausing early in her speech to say, "the nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed." 

She spoke about her album not being finished when she found out she was pregnant and filming a music video before she started showing.

She also thanked several of her collaborators, including J Balvin and Bad Bunny.

Other Grammys highlights:

H.E.R. is the winner of the best R&B album for her self-titled album.
Drake is the winner of the Grammy Award for best rap song for "God's Plan."
Kacey Musgraves has won best country album for "Golden Hour."

Childish Gambino's "This Is America" has won the Grammy Award for song of the year. 

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have won the Grammy Award for best pop duo/group performance for the song "Shallow" from "A Star Is Born."
