The pair basically saved 2020 with their iconic collaboration, and set tongues wagging with that iconic video – complete with cameos from Kylie Jenner, Rosalia and Normani.
They have now earned the number one most-read lyrics in the world, on Apple Music.
People were just desperate to know what WAP meant, and we can’t say we blame them…
The music streaming service has announced the top 100 most-read lyrics around the world, with the banger topping the list.
They also revealed that Dance Monkey, by Tones And I was the top song of 2020 in the UK, while Roddy Ricch’s The Box was the biggest global song.
WAP raised all kinds of eyebrows when it was released – due to those explicit lyrics that Apple Music listeners now know all about.
It topped the chart in the UK for three weeks, and broke records within its first week of release, amassing 93 million streams – more than any other track in history.
Not too shabby.
However, despite all the acclaim, fans were shook when it wasn’t on the list of Grammys nominations.
Hitting back at the confusion, Cardi explained that she wasn’t that fussed because she didn’t actually submit it for a nod, so we can all calm right down.
Chatting on Instagram, she said: ‘I never pressed for a Grammy, but y’all are not gonna take away something that I know that I worked my ass off that I deserve.
‘If I was pressed for a Grammy I would have submitted WAP for this year. I didn’t submit. I didn’t want to be submitted to award shows until I put out my album because I think my album is so good, and it means something and I worked on it a lot.
‘I’ve been working on it for almost two years.
‘Some songs are so emotional to me because I did them during quarantine. I’m not pressed or nothing, I’m not gonna keep doing this s**t constantly because y’all are upset. Y’all cannot take my success.’
Bring on Cardi’s new album.
