Megan Thee Stallion Has a Message for All the Conservatives Who Hate ‘WAP’


Megan Thee Stallion isn’t sweating the conservatives who have a problem with “WAP,” her hit song with Cardi B. The track (which abbreviates “wet ass pussy”) is a celebration of female sexual liberation, but, of course, some people just saw it as vulgar. 

To those folks, Megan has a simple message: “Thank you for the streams!”

“First of all, I wanna say thank you to Cardi for even putting me on the song,” Megan told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show December 9. “But, I mean, I felt like [the backlash] was really, like, a little weird. I know the Republicans have been having a bad year, and they probably needed to take their frustration out somewhere.”

She continued, “But I wanna tell them thank you for the streams! Because without you, I don’t know if we would’ve been here! But no, them people crazy—why you worried about my WAP?”

Cardi B has a similar take on the song’s detractors. “The people that the song bothers are usually conservatives or really religious people, but my thing is I grew up listening to this type of music,” she said in August on the Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show. “Other people might think it’s strange and vulgar, but to me it’s almost like really normal, you know what I’m saying?”

She continued, “You wanna know something? It’s what people wanna hear. If people didn’t wanna hear it, if they were so afraid to hear it, it wouldn’t be doing as good.” 

“Good” is an understatement. “WAP” debuted at number one on Billboard‘s Hot 100 and is still holding court in the top 40. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are truly too successful to be stressed.
