Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have dropped the official video for their joint single “WAP.” In the visuals, the rappers take us for a wild ride, with celebrity cameos from Kylie Jenner, Normani, Rosaliá, Mulatto, and more.
The extravagant Colin Tilley-directed video, sees Cardi and Megan in B.A.P.S style looks explore a cooky house and deliver elaborate performances in different themed rooms. Cardi claimed on Instagram that the video features the “wet and gushy” censored version of the song. “The song was so nasty that YouTube was like ‘hold on, wait a minute, that song might be too goddamn nasty,’” she said.
“WAP” is Cardi’s first original release since 2019’s “Press,” and arrives as she works on the follow-up to Invasion of Privacy. The song is also significant as it marks the first joint record between the rap superstars.
Earlier this year, fans speculated that Meg and Cardi were beefing. Not only does this collaboration set the record straight, but Cardi also spoke to New Music Daily on Apple Music about the false narrative that female artists can’t support each other.
“I feel like people be wanting to put female artists against each other. It’s the people that be trying to do that sh-t […] Every single time I feel like there’s a female artist that’s coming up, coming up, coming up and it’s getting they mainstream moment, I always see like little slick comments like, “Oh, they taking over your spot. They taking over this. They taking over that.” And it just makes me feel like, damn, why it had to be like that?”
