Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B’s “WAP” Becomes First Female Rap Collaboration to Reach UK Number One

After four weeks blasting over our radios, Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B’s single “WAP” has finally reached number one in this week’s UK Official Singles Chart. Thanks to 65,000 charts sales and 8.5 million streams, “WAP” jumped to number one after spending two weeks in the second spot. And it’s not just a number one track they’re celebrating, the top spot also marks the first female rap collaboration to ever reach the UK’s number one.

Their UK chart-hitting success comes after criticism that the track was too explicit and overly sexual. However, with the criticism came huge celebration and support for The Stallion and Cardi using the song and accompanying music video as a way to reclaim their sexuality as Black women and spearheading a new wave of female empowerment.

Since dominating the charts, “WAP” has been a source of inspiration for many; reimagined as a classical masterpiece as well as an epic workout.

Aside from being an incredible track full of some of the best famous cameos, the video also gave us so much hair and makeup inspiration that we’ll be talking about it well beyond 2020. Congrats to the epic duo that is Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B.
