Cardi B reigned supreme at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night, taking home the win for Best New Artist. But first, the rapper opened the show with a knockout medley of some of her biggest hits and verses, including "Bartier Cardi", "Motorsport", and breakout single "Bodak Yellow".

After killing the stage, the Bronx-born rapper gave a rousing acceptance speech. Taking time to thank her haters for her wild success, Cardi laughed, "They be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it but it benefits me!" Before wrapping up, Cardi promised her long-awaited third studio album. “My album will be coming in April! Yes, sir, April.” Watch Cardi's acceptance speech below.
