**Caution: the video below contains explicit lyrics**
Yes, that is indeed the sensation of your eardrums retracting in terror.
It was even turned into a satirical laugh-a-thon when Ben Shapiro’s intriguing take-down of the tune earned itself its own backbeat remix.
Such digital workings have had the blessing of Cardi herself, but we can only assume she’s not had a chance to pass her judgement on the latest musical delight.
Punters cottoned onto the WAP X Rockstar remix earlier this week, with the YouTube track created by William Maranci gaining traction.
Now, let us make it perfectly clear, while we may be bagging out this collaboration til our throats are dry, it works. Sort of. And that kills us.
The creator of this new earworm has expertly mashed up the lyrics to create the chorus of ‘now we all just wanna be big WAP-stars’ and has made Chad Kroeger lead into ‘wet a** p***y’ more times than is necessary, but if you ignore the haphazard lyrics, it’s an x-rated team-up we didn’t ask for, but what we clearly deserve.
If you don’t have the stomach to listen to the whole thing, but are just a little curious as to what we’re on about, we’re talking lyrics including: ‘I’m gonna trade this life for wet-as p**sy I’d even cut my p**sy and change my a*s.
‘Cause we all just wanna be big WAP-stars and live in hilltop WAP, drivin’ wet-a*s p**sies.
‘The girls come easy and the macaroni come cheap. Wet a*s p**sy make that pull out game weak.’
We will allow a special round of applause to the inclusion of Cardi’s now-famous ‘CORONAVIRUS!’ meme in there.
You can only admire the dumpster fire that is the comments section under the video, which so far has had more than 15,000 views (and is not Maranci’s only WAP remix – with a rather delightful Bohemian Rhapsody mashup on his account working perfectly, we have to say).
One fan was asking for trouble as they wrote: ‘Let’s see Ben Shapiro react to this.’
Another was picking up what we were putting down as they added of their division: ‘Make no mistake, this is one of the sh**tiest ideas I’ve ever heard of, but the execution is exactly halfway between torture chamber and perfection.’
And one summed up the vibe perfectly: ‘”I wanna be black like Elvis” followed by dead silence killed me.’
Only recently it was teased Nickelback was poised for a 2020 comeback and we can only assume this is exactly what they were on about.
Because, let’s be honest, is any of their actual tunes going to garner as much attention as this WAP remake?
We jest, we jest – you’re alright Nickelback.
