Cardi B and Post Malone won’t be competing for best new artist at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper earned two nominations at this year’s Grammys held in February so she’s not eligible for the nomination.
Post Malone was submitted for best new artist at this year’s show but didn’t get a nomination.
Sources said some voters felt because he had success with his 2016 debut, “Stoney”, as well as the hit songs “Congratulations” and “White Iverson” released in 2015, he had already passed new artist status.
