Why “WAP” is criticized?
Cardi B defends her latest song “WAP” which was trolled by critics because of its explicit lyrics. The song boldly highlights female sexuality and expressions. Cardi has always made her stand clear on feminity. The 27 years old rapper believes that a woman can do the same things as a man. She also hates the stigma and taboo around female body parts and tries to change it by her songs. Her fearless and bold personality does not suit everybody. Despite being criticized for her trending song, “WAP”, she remains unaffected.
How Cardi takes her stand?
On an Australian radio show, Cardi said that “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 does no find her song vulgar. However, she did mention that her new song “WAP” is for adults only. The video was also slammed for its racist word ‘nigga‘ which was used to refer black people. The mother of the 2-year child admitted that she would not want her child to listen to this. It is certainly not for the kids but for the netizens who are mature enough to understand. Some people went way too far by calling it a pornographic content. One artist criticizes her by saying that she uses obscene gestures in her music video. Later, he faced several backlashes from Cardi B fans and apologized to her.
Cardi B’s “WAP” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, was released on August 7, 2020. It soon became a sensational hit and is currently at Number 1 on Billboard Hot 100. There were some harsh tweets on Twitter, but Cardi manages to maintain her cool. She said that she never paid attention to people who try to defame her. In the US, it crossed more than 93 million streams within a week. In an interview, she said “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.”
