Megan Thee Stallion just won her first Grammy and made history along the way! Ahead of the official show, the 26-year-old rapper took home the award for best rap performance for her hit "Savage" with Beyoncé during Sunday's premiere ceremony. Not only does that make her an official Grammy winner, but it also marks the first time in history that an all-female collaboration has won the category.

Naturally, Megan could not contain her excitement over the major milestone. "Thank you, Lord. God is the first person that I want to thank," Megan said in her speech. "I just still can't even believe this . . . just thank everybody who just is rocking with me and been riding with me for a long time. I love y'all so much. Thank you for just believing in me." Shortly after, Megan tweeted, "AHHHHHHHJHGJDKNBOOM," with a bunch of crying face emoji. She also thanked her fans, adding, "Love you hotties."

Cardi B was quick to congratulate Megan on her win, writing, "Congrats @theestallion. You deserve it!," to which Megan replied, "Thank you bardi I can't wait for everyone to see us kill it Tonight."

In addition to taking the stage for a performance tonight, Megan is up for a few more awards including record of the year, best new artist, and best rap song. Beyoncé is also nominated for record of the year, song of the year, and best R&B performance. We're wishing them the best of luck!
