Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘WAP’ Just Made Music History Made Only By The Likes Of Barbra Streisand And Christina Aguilera

Updated August 17, 2020.

Cardi B’ and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” video has shot to No. 1. on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. The song is Cardi B’s fourth to top the list and the second for Megan.

The big news marks another historic moment in a year loaded with powerful women-led collaborations.

According to Billboard, “Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion combine for the ninth Hot 100 No. 1 credited to two or more women (and no other billed acts), and the fourth this year. Prior to 2020, five such songs had led over 40-plus years.” In 2020 four women-led collaborations have reached the number 1 spot. This past year, the women collabs to reach the top of the chart have also included “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, (June 6, 2020), “Savage” by Megan Thee Stallion feat. Beyoncé (May 30, 2020), and “Say So” by Doja Cat feat. Nicki Minaj (May 16, 2020).

The last female collabs to hit the top no.1 were 2014’s “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, Rihanna and Britney Spears’ 2011 hit “S&M”
“Lady Marmalade” by Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya & P!nk, in 2001,
“The Boy Is Mine” by Brandy & Monica in 1998 and “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” by Barbra Streisand & Donna Summer in 1979.

Clearly, female collaboration are thriving in quarantine.

Cardi B and Megan’s big moment in musical history will give you all of the thirst vibes you need.

They did that. The music video is everything we didn’t know we needed to make quarantine better. The rappers gave a very exciting performance as they delivered a music video we will not soon forget to the first song Cardi B has released in nine months. They even had some notable cameos like Normani Kordei and Rosalia. But fans want to know why Kylie Jenner had to be involved.

After all, Kylie Jenner’s cameo is just walking through a hallway.

The cameo is a very random placement but might just be the best way to grab some attention. Normani Kordei, Rosalia, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, and Mulatto also appeared in the video and were given far smaller parts. People are just really confused.

Though, on Twitter user pointed out that Jenner is doing exactly what you’d expect. People always give her attention when she shows up somewhere and that attention will help the video. Cardi B isn’t one to overlook things so she likely knew you’d be upset and have to figure out why Jenner was added to the project.

Earlier this month, the rappers confirmed that they were dropping a new collaboration that we didn’t see coming and fans were quick to go crazy.

“WAP” is the first lead track from Cardi since she dropped “Press” in 2019.

Earlier this year in March, Megan dropped her album “Suga.”

“WAP” drops this Friday and by the looks of the song’s cover art, it’s gonna be quite the hit. Or at least be very taste? Megan and Cardi can be seen posing for the cover art wearing matching “WAP” gold hoops and with their hair woven in together into one bun. To top it off, their tongues are sticking out like they’re ready to rock.

The latest pairing is a follow up to Megan’s recent power couple collab for “Savage” with Beyoncé. It also her newest song since her recent recovery from a gunshot wound.

The new song is proof that Megan, who revealed that she was shot in both of her feet, can stand on her own no matter what.

Speaking about the shooting, which happened on July 12, Megan said “I see… a lot of people that have been very supportive and sending prayers, and I just really appreciate that” she said during the live stream. “I saw the hotties doing a lot of things, like writing letters on Tumblr and DMing me all the time, and I just want to say thank y’all so much, because y’all have really been the ones helping me get through this.”

“I was shot in both of my feet,” she explained. “I had to get surgery to get the bullets taken out. And it was super scary… Thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones; they didn’t break tendons. I know my momma or my daddy, my granny, had to be looking out for me with that one because where the bullets hit at it missed everything.”

Of course, Cardi B and Megan fans were quick to flip.

Literally we’re all pumped.

Girl groups are uniting.

And we’re all ready for it to reach #1.

And we all have questions about what WAP is supposed to mean?

It’s all a mystery but we’re here for the guesses.

“WAP” drops this week on August 7, this Friday.
