When Cardi B excitingly announced that her first single of 2020 ‘WAP’ featuring Megan Thee Stallion was impromptuly coming, everyone immediately started questioning what the acronym could stand for. With people already guessing it could be ‘Women Are Powerful’, they were quickly corrected in the opening lines of the song where she declares “Yeah, you fuckin’ with some wet-ass pussy”. She then goes on to say ‘Wet As Pussy’ another sixteen times.
‘WAP’ is super playful from the get-go, and just gets even more raucous and sexually charged as you get deeper into the song. With lyrics like “Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet-ass pussy” and “When I ride the dick, I’ma spell my name, ah” sprinkled throughout the track, you will be left with so many memorable moments. But the one that takes the cake, literally, is; “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”.
Spitting over a hard hip-hop beat, Cardi and Megan bring a lot of attitude and sassiness to the song. With the lyrics speaking for themselves, there is a natural fun and cheeky element to it which has you immediately vibing along.
This playful and sexually charged song is a hilariously strong lead single into what is expected to be the beginning of a new era for the New York rapper. Can we please have more Cardi B in our life? Thank you!
