With the fear, Cardi B has become the first female songwriter to win songwriter of the year twice (whether consecutively or not) at the annual event. 

Kandi Burruss (2000), Alicia Keys (2005) and Mary J. Blige (2007) have each won the award once.

Cardi B picked up the award on the strength of songs like “Backin’ It Up,” “Clout,”“Money,” “Press,” “Please Me” and “Ring.”

This is ASCAP’s fourth awards event this year to be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rhythm & Soul Awards honors top songwriters in R&B, hip-hop and gospel.
