Cardi B is bold, unapologetic and outright explicit in her most recent single ‘WAP’, and the world is loving it as it peaked at No.
1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was streamed 93 million times in its first week.
As the lyrics pertain to Cardi and collaborator Megan Thee Stallion proudly telling the lyrical audience about the full power of their vaginal abilities, criticism for the subject matter and lyrics since its release on August 7 has also surmounted along with the social media craze over the song.
Ever consistent with her persona, Cardi told Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show a piece of her mind on these critiques, telling the hosts that she thinks the lyrics are ‘normal’ by hip hop standards.
‘The people that the song bothers are usually like conservatives or really religious, fake religious people,’ Cardi B said.
‘I grew up listening to this type of music, so to other people it might be strange and vulgar, but to me it’s almost like really normal.It’s like, no of course I don’t want my child [two-year-old daughter Kulture] to listen to this song and everything, but it’s like, it’s for adults,’ she added.
Cardi took to Twitter to tout the fact that she has become the only female rapper with a charting album in Billboard 200 history that lasted more than any other else in the music industry.
Cardi retweeted with the words: ‘It feels very good ! Thank you guys for still supporting and listening to invasion of privacy. Working on my second album,it’s takin time but I want to make sure i put a amazing project. (sic)’
The TikTok craze that has been incited by the release of this seminal piece is also bringing home some rather complicated choreography cover rave, with physical injuries happening.
One dancer, Brian Esperon, from Guam, has posted a routine playing along to the tune, which was viewed 15 million times and ‘liked’ 2.9 million times. TikTok user lib_bbbbbbb posted a failure of her trying to cover this routine, making herself popular in the most embarrassing way:
In the footage, she is seen with a twisted knee cap, later carried out to the hospital by ambulance workers. Cardi B also commented on this social media backfire: ‘Please guys be safe while doing the WAP WAP WAP.’ ‘I hurt my back doing it,’ responded user emily.chavezz. Another said: ‘Yes, I had to pop my knee back into place. I’ll try again later.’
