Cardi B accepts the award for Top Hot 100 Song for "Girls Like You" (Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B) during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 1, 2019, in Las Vegas.

Cardi B will not be able to cash in on her well known catchphrase, "Okurrr," after officials denied the rapper's request for a trademark. 

According to documents obtained by The Blast, U.S. Patent and Trademark officials determined the phrase was a "widely used commonplace expression."

This was after the office learned the Kardashians, as well as Cardi B fans, have been using the phrase for years. 

Cardi B was planning on using the phrase on merchandise such as posters and cups. It was also expected to be a clothing line.
