Bronx-born Cardi B made a big splash last night (August 7, 2020) with the release of her visual for “WAP,” a song that features Megan thee Stallion and includes cameos by Kylie Jenner, Normani, Rosalía along with rising female rappers Mulatto, Rubi Rose and SukiHana.
Braggadocio lyrics driving home (literally) Cardi (real name Belcalis Almánzar )and Megan’s (real name Megan Pete) sexual skill sets act as the perfect soundtrack for a lavish mansion filled with scantily dressed, drop dead gorgeous women.
The visual was directed by Colin Tilley with creative direction by Kollin Carter and Patientce Foster. EJ King provided fashion styling while Tokyo Stylez (that chain link pony!) provided the lead on hair. Erika La’ Pearl took care of makeup.
The single is Cardi’s first since releasing “Press” in May 2019. She’s currently at work on her sophomore album and as of yet hasn’t providing timing for its release.
Cardi’s smash debut album Invasion of Privacy currently sits at 92 on the Billboard 200 where it’s spent 121 weeks on the chart.
Prior to the video premiere at midnight, Cardi and Megan went live on YouTube to chat with their fans. Check out both visuals below.
