In August 2020, Cardi B arguably had the hottest song of 2020, in “WAP.” This record also featured Megan Thee Stallion, along with huge cameos in the video for it. These included Kylie Jenner, Normani, Latto, and more. WAP ended up debuting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Now, the plaques keep rolling in for Cardi and WAP. According to Chart Data, it is now 6x platinum in the US. This is after selling 6 million units. WAP appeared at the top spot twice on the Hot 100, as it returned there after BTS’ “Dynamite” held that position for two weeks.
WAP also drew plenty of controversy, as it faced backlash from Republican politicians. Many felt that the record wasn’t appropriate at all, but thankfully, people clapped back, and cited how their former President, Donald Trump. acts with women.
Cardi also recently said on Instagram, that she has a big announcement, coming on Thursday. Many anticipate that this will be news regarding her long-awaited sophomore album.
