Ahead of her debut performance at Club Kaos at The Palm in Las Vegas on Saturday, Cardi B took a break to celebrate being nominated for 21 Billboard Awards on Thursday.

The mom-of-one is the most nominated artist this year, with Drake and Post Malone trailing behind with 17 nominations each.  Cardi took to Instagram to celebrate the big acoomplishment.

"I made this video because I wanted to say thank you to you all because I've been nominated for 21 Billboard Awards," she said. "I fell like I'm THAT B**ch right now! 

I remember when all I ever wanted to do was chart on the Hot 100 charts. I was like, 'If I chart, I'm official.'"

Cardi is nominated in some of the biggest categories including: Top Female Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Rap Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, and Top Rap Album. 

She shares a few categories with fellow Latino Gang stars Bad Bunny and J Balvin for their collaboration titled "I Like It" including Top Hot 100 Song, Top Streaming Song, Top Selling Song, Top Collaboration, and Top Rap Song.

She also earned nods for her track with DJ Snake, Selena Gomez, and Ozuna titled "Taki Taki" and her song with Maroon 5 "Girls Like You."

And while it's anyone's award show, there's no doubt that the New York native will need extra arms to carry home her accolades. 

The 2019 Billboard Music Awards will air live from the MGM Garden Arena on May 1 at 8pm ET on NBC.
