Cardi B was honored with Billboard's Woman of the Year award at the Billboard Women in Music event on Thursday, December 10. She received the award from Breonna Taylor's mother Tamika Palmer.

"This year, when it came to music, I had so many things planned," Cardi said. "I had so many projects that I wanted to come out. Unfortunately, due to COVID, I couldn't put out the visuals the way that I wanted, it messed up my creative space. You know, I think everyone this year was just messed up."

She added, "So I'm just grateful and thankful that the song that I actually did put out this year, which was 'WAP' featuring Megan Thee Stallion, not only was it an amazing song that broke so many records, but it was a conversation that I never thought was going to be so big."

Meanwhile, Palmer called Cardi B one of Breonna Taylor's most outspoken advocates over the past few months in her video presentation.

"Cardi has used her platform to spread the truth about what happened to Breonna and to reaffirm that Black women's lives matter," Palmer said. "Cardi B's impact reaches far beyond music. That why I am so proud and honored to present Billboard's Woman of the Year award to Miss Cardi B."

Breonna Taylor, 26, was shot to death by police in her own home on March 13, in what has been described as a "botched raid."
