Cardi B WAP

Cardi B WAP Description

Cardi B WAP: “WAP” (an acronym for “Wet-Ass Pussy“, expurgated as “Wet and gushy“) is a song recorded by American rapper Cardi B, featuring vocals from American rapper Megan Thee Stallion. It was released through Atlantic Records on August 7, 2020, as the lead single from Cardi’s upcoming second studio album. “WAP” is a hip hop song driven by heavy bass and a sample of Frank Ski’s 1993 single “Whores in This House”. The song sees Cardi and Megan discuss how they want men to please them, using several sexual innuendos.

Receiving widespread critical acclaim upon release, Cardi B WAP was praised by commentators for its sex-positive message. Some conservative commentators criticized it for its sexually explicit nature. It debuted at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Cardi B her fourth number-one single in the US, extending her record as the female rapper with the most number-one singles in Hot 100 history, and Megan her second.

The song broke the record for the largest opening streaming week for a song in US history, and debuted atop the Billboard Digital Song Sales, Streaming Songs, Hot Rap Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs charts. Cardi B became the only female rapper to achieve Hot 100 number one singles in two different decades (2010s and 2020s). It marked the only number one debut of 2020 to spend multiple weeks on top. The single also reached number one in Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand.

The accompanying music video, directed by Colin Tilley, featured cameos from several different women, including American television star Kylie Jenner, singers Normani and Rosalía, and rappers Mulatto, Sukihana and Rubi Rose. The video has been described as a confident display of women who demonstrate their sexual prowess. Cardi B WAP broke the record for the biggest 24-hour debut for an all-female collaboration on YouTube.

Cardi B WAP Background and release

In October 2019, Cardi B claimed to announce the title of her then-forthcoming second studio album, intending to call it Tiger Woods, but later retracted this, saying she was joking. On April 8, 2020, she revealed that the album would be released that year. During an Instagram livestream on May 23, she confirmed that a new single was coming “very, very soon”. Having been approached about new music again the next month, Cardi B replied that the music was coming. The rapper went on to tease an announcement in August.

On August 3, 2020, Cardi revealed that the song was a collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion and simultaneously posted the cover art for the song on her social media. A few days later on August 6, she announced via Instagram that the music video for the song would be released alongside it on August 7, but that the video would feature the censored version of the track.

The song became Cardi’s first release of 2020, and Megan’s first release following a highly publicized shooting incident involving her and Tory Lanez, in which Megan sustained injuries from a bullet to her feet.

Cardi B WAP Reception

Critical response

Upon release, Cardi B WAP received widespread critical acclaim. For Pitchfork, Lakin Starling called it “a nasty-ass rap bop, bursting with the personality of two of rap’s most congenial household names”, adding, “the detailed play-by-play in the verses doesn’t aim to impress guys—and that, the song suggests, is why Cardi and Meg’s expertise is credible,” as they “center themselves as women in order to freely celebrate their coveted power, sex appeal, and A1 WAP.”

Jon Caramanica of The New York Times deemed it “an event record that transcends the event itself”, and stated that both rappers “are exuberant, sharp and extremely, extremely vividly detailed” in the song that “luxuriates in raunch”. Rania Aniftos of Billboard described the song as a “twerk-ready, scorching banger”. Mikael Wood of Los Angeles Times deemed it a “savage, nasty, sex-positive triumph” and stated that “the women’s vocal exuberance is the show—the way they tear into each perfectly rendered lyric and chew up the words like meat”.

From the same paper, Christi Carras wrote that the song “carries a political weight that men rapping about sex doesn’t”.. For The A.V. Club, Shannon Miller stated that “the anthemic salute to total, unabashed sexual agency” shows both rappers with a “straightforward delivery and collective vibrancy” that “exudes a spirit that is as rebellious as it is fun.”

Writing for Vulture, Craig Jenkins considered the song “class-A Filth for the ages”, writing, “the main thrust here is the lyrics, there is so much thrusting going on in the lyrics”. In Stereogum, Chris DeVille commented that the song “has big lead-single energy” as it is “a convergence of two of the biggest stars in rap”.

Brianna Holt of Complex wrote, “Both Cardi and Megan are powerhouses of female sexuality, independence, and dominance,” and deemed the song “the epitome of female empowerment”, adding, “Art like Cardi B WAP could not be more valuable and necessary during a time when people are actively trying to unlearn their own biases and recognizing ways that they contribute to the neglect of Black women.”

NBC journalist Susanne Ramírez de Arellano called the song “a joyful role reversal” and “the triumph of delicious filth”, writing, “with rapid-fire flow and endlessly quotable one-liners, the two hip hop stars create a female sex-positive anthem as they trade lyrics and grab back the genre’s sexual narratives from ‘hard’ male rappers”. She added that “[it] is as honest and tasteful” as a song can get when it is about something like the explicitness of female pleasure and female desire, “that men still consider too vulgar for words”.

For The Guardian, Dream McClinton wrote, “the hit collaboration between the two rappers has become a belated song of the summer, empowering women and enraging prudes along the way… [it] should be celebrated, not scolded”. In NPR, cultural critic Taylor Crumpton deemed both rappers “women leading the genre into [a] new era of unification between women rappers” with “an already iconic song about women sexuality”. She praised the message, describing it as “if you need to come, step to me, you have to be able to fill my sexual needs, and these are what they are”.

Cardi B WAP Music video

The song’s video, directed by Colin Tilley, was released simultaneously with the song and uses the alternate clean version of the song. It was shot in July 2020 in West Hollywood, California. Cardi said that over $100,000 was spent getting COVID-19 testing for everyone on set. Garnering over 26 million views in its first day, Cardi B WAP broke the record for the biggest 24-hour debut for an all-female collaboration on YouTube.

Days after the video’s release, Cardi created an OnlyFans account to share behind-the-scenes footage from the video, along with other exclusive non-explicit content.

Cardi B WAP Cover versions

On August 10, rapper Safaree released a “refix” of the song called “B.A.D” (an acronym for Big Ass Dick). The cover art features Cardi and Megan on both ends, with a woman (assumed to be his wife Erica Mena) performing simulated oral sex on him in the center. In it, he brags about the size of his penis while also referencing his leaked nudes from February 2018. Cardi herself reacted to the remix via Twitter, writing “Omgggggg @IAMSAFAREE you are too naughty”.

The remix was widely panned by fans on social media. Many found the remix to be poorly-timed, considering how soon after the song’s original release it came. The same day, dancehall singer Vybz Kartel released a freestyle remix while in prison, which was met with enthusiasm from Cardi B WAP.

Rapper Plies teased a “P-Mix” to the song on August 13, which he released on August 14. His remix was met with positive reception. Country singer Margo Price performed a “mellow” acoustic rendition of “WAP” on August 14, 2020 on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, as part of a segment on double standards about sex in music. Rolling Stone‘s Claire Shaffer said of the cover, “Price puts her genuine all into the song, and it comes out sounding like a legitimate country ode to ‘wet ass pussy.'”

Also on August 14, rapper Queen Key released a remix to the song entitled “BAP” (an acronym for “Blessed Ass Pussy”) along with a music video directed by Lawrence Mahone. Lounge singer Richard Cheese released an uncensored lounge version of Cardi B WAP as a single on August 19, 2020. Also that day, rapper R.A. the Rugged Man released a remix entitled “Wet Ass P-Word”. Rapper Qveen Herby released a cover version of the song as a promotional single on August 20.

Cardi B WAP Lyrics

[Intro: Cardi B, Al “T” McLaran & Megan Thee Stallion]
Whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house (Hol’ up)

I said certified freak, seven days a week
Wet-ass pussy, make that pullout game weak, woo (Ah)

[Chorus: Cardi B]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, you fuckin’ with some wet-ass pussy
Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet-ass pussy
Give me everything you got for this wet-ass pussy

[Verse 1: Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion]
Beat it up, nigga, catch a charge
Extra large and extra hard
Put this pussy right in your face
Swipe your nose like a credit card
Hop on top, I wanna ride
I do a kegel while it’s inside
Spit in my mouth, look in my eyes
This pussy is wet, come take a dive
Tie me up like I’m surprised
Let’s roleplay, I’ll wear a disguise
I want you to park that big Mack truck right in this little garage
Make it cream, make me scream
Out in public, make a scene
I don’t cook, I don’t clean
But let me tell you how I got this ring (Ayy, ayy)

[Verse 2: Megan Thee Stallion]
Gobble me, swallow me, drip down the side of me (Yeah)
Quick, jump out ‘fore you let it get inside of me (Yeah)
I tell him where to put it, never tell him where I’m ’bout to be (Huh)
I’ll run down on him ‘fore I have a nigga runnin’ me (Pow, pow, pow)
Talk your shit, bite your lip (Yeah)
Ask for a car while you ride that dick (While you ride that dick)
You really ain’t never gotta fuck him for a thang (Yeah)
He already made his mind up ‘fore he came (Ayy, ah)
Now get your boots and your coat for this wet-ass pussy (Ah, ah, ah)
He bought a phone just for pictures of this wet-ass pussy (Click, click, click)
Pay my tuition just to kiss me on this wet-ass pussy (Mwah, mwah, mwah)
Now make it rain if you wanna see some wet-ass pussy (Yeah, yeah)

[Verse 3: Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion]
Look, I need a hard hitter, need a deep stroker
Need a Henny drinker, need a weed smoker
Not a garter snake, I need a king cobra
With a hook in it, hope it lean over
He got some money, then that’s where I’m headed
Pussy A1 just like his credit
He got a beard, well, I’m tryna wet it
I let him taste it, now he diabetic
I don’t wanna spit, I wanna gulp
I wanna gag, I wanna choke
I want you to touch that lil’ dangly thing that swing in the back of my throat
My head game is fire, punani Dasani
It’s goin’ in dry and it’s comin’ out soggy
I ride on that thing like the cops is behind me (Yeah, ah)
I spit on his mic and now he tryna sign me, woo

[Verse 4: Megan Thee Stallion]
Your honor, I’m a freak bitch, handcuffs, leashes
Switch my wig, make him feel like he cheatin’
Put him on his knees, give him somethin’ to believe in
Never lost a fight, but I’m lookin’ for a beatin’ (Ah)
In the food chain, I’m the one that eat ya
If he ate my ass, he’s a bottom-feeder
Big D stand for big demeanor
I could make ya bust before I ever meet ya
If it don’t hang, then he can’t bang
You can’t hurt my feelings, but I like pain
If he fuck me and ask “Whose is it?”
When I ride the dick, I’ma spell my name, ah

[Chorus: Cardi B]
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, you fuckin’ with some wet-ass pussy
Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet-ass pussy
Give me everything you got for this wet-ass pussy
Now from the top, make it drop, that’s some wet-ass pussy
Now get a bucket and a mop, that’s some wet-ass pussy
I’m talkin’ wap, wap, wap, that’s some wet-ass pussy
Macaroni in a pot, that’s some wet-ass pussy, huh

[Outro: Al “T” McLaran]
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
