Last Year, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion took the music industry by surprise with the success of their chart-topping sex-positive single WAP. Now, one year later, Cardi and Megan celebrated the success of their hit song and tease possible new collaboration.
Taking to Twitter Cardi wrote, “Wow I can’t believe wappity WAP turned one today. It don’t even feel like it. What a record! @theestallion we should do it again sometime.”

The single and music video, debuted last August, as part of Cardi’s upcoming second album. The highly scandalous video featured cameos from famous friends including Kylie Jenner, Normani, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Rosalía, and Mulatto. Taking place in a funhouse-esque mansion, the duo donned sexy lingerie as they showed off their moves.
Even though the single was number one on the Billboard Hot 100, which made it Cardi’s fourth No. 1 single and Megan’s second, the women faced backlashes from conservative audiences who thought it was too scandalous.
While chatting with Apple Music in February, Cardi continued to defend her song. “When ‘WAP’ came out, the people that were criticizing it the most, they were like, ‘This is so nasty, this is so freaky’ — I don’t even think it was religious people, it was really a lot of Republicans,” she said
Megan also came to the defense of her hit song, while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “First of all, I wanna say thank you to Cardi for even putting me on the song. But, I mean, I felt like that 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 said.
Halle Berry also joined in the celebration. Tweeting over the weekend, “Unseen footage from #WAP video. Happy 1-year ladies.” While posting a clip from the music video with a scene of her dancing in the 1997 movie B.A.P.S
