American female rapper Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B has reached another milestone with her hottest racy music video “WAP” featuring vocals from fellow American rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

“WAP” which stands for “Wet-Ass Pu**y is a lead single of Cardi B’s second album and her first original release for 2020.

“WAP” is now the most viewed female collaboration in its first 24 hours in YouTube HISTORY with over 30 MILLION views at the time of writing this, surpassing Lady Gaga & BLACKPINK’s “Sour Candy”.

The video is currently trending on number one spot barely 24 hours after it was released on YouTube.

Although Cardi and Megan fans were all thrilled with the song but it was widely criticized for the following reasons:

1. For its provocative lyricism

The song is sexually sensitive and was heavily criticized for its provocative lyrics, infact is purely not meant for kid’s consumption.

Reacting to the song James P. Bradley, a Republican running for a Congressional seat in California, took to Twitter to criticize Cardi and Megan for their provocative lyricism.

He also wrote that he “accidentally” heard the song. “Their new ‘song’ The #WAP (which i heard accidentally) made me want to pour holy water in my ears and I feel sorry for future girls if this is their role model!” Bradley tweeted.

2. Fans are not happy with Kyle Jenner appearance.

About one minute and 45 seconds into the video, Jenner, clad in an animal-print outfit, stares down the camera while walking down an ornate hallway.

Cardi and Megan's video is out - with a cameo from Kylie

Kylie, 22, dominated the lengths of the colourful hallway before opening a door when the scene switches to Cardi casually doing the splits on two chairs.

Many fans, it seems, were not exactly thrilled — so much so that a Change.org petition to remove Jenner from the video has already received more than 34,000 signatures in less than 24 hours. The problem many have with Jenner’s appearance is rooted in her history of what’s been coined as “blackfishing,” an attempt at mimicking the look and style of Black women.

‘The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone,’ the creator of the petition wrote.
