Cardi B attends the 2019 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 1, 2019 in Las Vegas.

Cardi B clocked in at No. 7 on Billboard's top Hot 100 songwriters of 2018 list after a banner year of hits on the Hot 100.

Upon seeing a June 6 tweet about the list, One Twitter user questioned if the Bronx native deserved the honor, claiming that she doesn't write her own music. "I had it up to here with this BS NOW One thing that she got a Grammy but r u kidding me @billboard how tf is Cardi on this list and SHE DOESNT WRITE ANYTHING SHE ADMITTED TO HAVING A TEAM OF WRITERS SO HOW TF DID SHE MAKE TOP SONGWRITER #really #stupid this is a joke now," the user wrote in a since-deleted tweet, captured by Baller Alert

The "Bodak Yellow" singer responded: "Because I do write a lot of my shit that’s the thing .Yes just like every other artist I do have a couple writer that help with hooks but I wrote plenty of songs on my album specially my mixtape .Ya just flip shit and ya want to believe the fuck shit so bad but EAT IT UP BITCH!"

Though Bardi elected to collaborate with a number of co-writers on her Grammy-winning Invasion of Privacy album, she's still credited as a writer on every track. 

The weekly Top Songwriters Chart is set to debut next week.
