She's Back! Cardi B to Return to Stage at AMAs in First Awards Show Performance Since Giving Birth
Cardi B will be performing at the Oct. 9 show — a month after her fight with Nicki Minaj at NYFW
The rapper, 25, will be taking the stage at the Oct. 9 show, marking her first awards show performance since welcoming daughter Kulture Kiari with husband Offset on July 10. She’ll be joined by Bad Bunny and J Balvin to perform their hit “I Like It,” PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
Sixteen days after she delivered baby Kulture, Cardi B announced in late July she would not be performing on Bruno Mars‘ tour in order to spend more time with her daughter and give her body more time to recover from the birth.
Cardi B is tied for the most nominations of the year with Drake as they both received eight nods. The pair will compete against each other in the show’s top category, artist of the year, along with Imagine Dragons, Post Malone, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift.
The star, who released her debut album Invasion of Privacy in April, is also nominated in the favorite new artist of the year, favorite female artist, pop/rock and favorite artist and rap/hip-hop categories.
