Hot Breakout: Cardi B
Cardi B has just had the best year of her life: she was signed to a major label, took the top spot on the charts from Taylor Swift with her single "Bodak Yellow," met the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna and even got engaged to her superstar boyfriend, Offset of the Migos. This is, of course, all after the Bronx-born former stripper built a grassroots fandom on Instagram with her hilarious videos and became a breakout star on the VH1 reality show Love & Hip-Hop. The rising star is currently working on her debut, full-length album — which follow two well-received, independently released mixtapes — and was Rolling Stone's most recent cover star. B.S.
