The music video for the thumping new track takes place in and around a luxurious mansion that has a fountain out front featuring a bootylicious fountain. 

“I just want to let y’all know, I wanna give y’all the heads up, the music video is going to be the censored version of the song, because the song is so nasty that YouTube was like, ‘Hold on, wait a minute, someone might be too Goddamn nasty,” Cardi B revealed on Instagram prior to the release, encouraging fans to listen to the full “nasty” version on streaming services.

The girl power-fueled video for “WAP” features cameos by the likes of Spanish singing sensation Rosalia, in full body red latex and a Spanish matador’s montera hat with the braids to match her hair color, Kylie Jenner and Normani to rising artists like SukihanaRubi Rose and Mulatto.

“I wanted a lot of different females, not just female rappers. I wanted different…A lot of different people. And y’all going to see it on the music video as well, from models to influencers and everything,” she told Zane Lowe in an Apple Music interview about the visual. “And I really wanted the video to be very sexy, very clean, very nice, very cut. All right, we need some female artists, rappers. And I’m like, ‘These are the girls that I personally like. That I like they music. That I really feel they are going to go mainstream, to me.’ All the girls right here, there’s different things that I like about them.”

“WAP” is Cardi B’s first music release of the year. It follows “South of the Border,” her collaboration with Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello, released in July 2019; “Yes,” her collaboration with Fat Joe and Anuel AA, released in September 2019; and “Writing on the Wall,” her collaboration with French MontanaPost Malone and Rvssian, released in September 2019.

Cardi B Hard at Work on New Album, Jokes She’ll Name It “Tiger Woods”

Cardi B’s next album could be a real eagle, or at least a birdie… 

The 26-year-old half-Dominican American rap sensation  teased fans about her sophomore album plans during an Instagram Live session Thursday morning.

Cardi B

“Everything that I’m working on right now is straight to my album. Straight to my album,” she said, while having her eyeliner done in the car. “And I think I’m gonna name my album Tiger Woods. I think I’ma name my album Tiger Woods ‘cause remember when everybody was talking shit on Tiger Woods and then he fucking came and won that green jacket? That’s what I’ma name my album.”

Cardi B is referring to the star golfer who won his first major tournament since 2008 earlier this year at the Masters, after extramarital affairs and a slew of knee and back injuries nearly derailed his entire career. 

Cardi B has remained hard at work completing the anticipated follow-up to her Grammy-winning hit Invasion of Privacy

She released one single this year, “Press,” but has delivered on several features alongside Ed Sheeran and Camila CabelloPost Maloneand French MontanaBruno Mars, and Lil Nas X.

Paulo Londra Releases New Single “Party” with A Boogie wit da Hoodie

Paulo Londra is ready to party

The 21-year-old Argentinian rapper has released his latest single “Party,” a collaboration with rapper A Boogie wit da Hoodie.

Paulo Londra

The nearly-four minute track, produced by Ovy on the Drums, combines Londra’s raspy voice and A Boogie’s witty rhyming over a mambo-infused trap melody with flairs of Spanish guitar rhythms. 

“Party” is a Spanglish joint where both the Argentine artist and New York-based rapper sing about their crazy party ways, sending a message to the haters who are trying to kill their vibe. 

“Don’t let this stop / Because I’m out partying with my people / No one can stop us now / Just jump now, don’t stop and olé!” belts Londra on the catchy chorus. 

Giving honor to the track, the music video shows both artists drinking, gambling, and having a great time with friends at a house party. 

“To have A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie on board makes me very happy. He gives the track an incredible touch and flow,” said Londra in an official statement. 

“I was mad excited when I got the call from Paulo Londra. I’ve been a big fan for a minute and I’m glad to be a part of this song,” A Boogie added of their first-ever collaboration. 

Earlier this year, Londra joined forces with Ed Sheeran on “Nothing on You,” part of Sheeran’s collaborative No. 6 album. On September 24, Londra was nominated for best new artist at the 2019 Latin Grammy Awards

The theatrical poster revealed that not only will Cabello, Sheeran and Cardi B be starring in the video, but they’ll also be joined by model Alexis Ren and actor Paul Karmiryan.

The five stars are posed in front of a beach background, with two cars and the lyric “Jump in that water, be free…” placed in front of them.


“South of the Border,” from Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Projectwas released July 12.

Nothing on You Ed Sheeran Paulo Londra

Sheeran, Londra and Dave each have their time to shine in the video in between drone shots of nighttime London, coming together to casually ride the streets as if they were old buddies.

The single is the latest single off Sheeran’s new album No.6 Collaborations Project .

The video was directed by SBTV, the online broadcasting channel that presented Sheeran as an emerging artist in his first live session of “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” back in 2010.

It’s Londra’s most high-profile collaboration to date. He’d previously joined voices with Piso 21 on “Te Amo” and with Becky G on “Cuando Te Besé.”

Bruno Mars Charts First-Ever Single on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart

He may be more of an R&B/funk singer, but Bruno Marsis making his mark in the rock world…

The 33-year-old part-Puerto Rican Grammy-winning singer’s rockin’ collaboration with Ed Sheeran and Chris Stapleton “Blow” debuts at No. 3 on Billboard‘s Hot Rock Songs chart dated July 20. 

Bruno Mars

It’s Mars’ first-ever appearance on the rock chart.

The closing track from Sheeran’s album No.6 Collaborations Project, released on July 12, opens with 7.5 million U.S. streams, 1.5 million in radio reach and 26,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music.

The sales sum also sparks the cut’s No. 1 debut on the Rock Digital Song Sales chart, marking each artist’s first leader. Sheeran is the only member of the trio with a prior history on the tally, having reached a previous No. 3 best with “Lego House” in 2013.

“Blow” also bows at No. 40 on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, a first for Sheeran and Mars.

On the all-format, streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100 (the same formula employed by Hot Rock Songs), “Blow” begins at No. 60.

Cabello previously revealed that Cardi B’s contribution to the song “is literally my favorite thing.”

“South of the Border” is one of the 15 collaborative tracks on Sheeran’s No. 6 Collaborations Project, which was released on Friday.

“My momma said go listen to SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Me for brighter underarms,” Cardi B teased on social media on Saturday, the day after Sheeran’s latest project dropped, along with a collage of childhood photos of the trio.

Ed Sheeran & Bruno Mars

The tongue-in-cheek music video for the unexpectedly hard-rocking track was directed by Mars and doesn’t feature any of the performers, whose roles are played by glammed up female doppelgangers. 

Cementing its rock vibe, the clip was shot at The Viper Roomin Los Angeles.

The all-girl band, fronted by America’s Next Top Model’s Cherish Waters(Sheeran), model Jordan Kelly DeBarge(Bruno Mars), and actress Cheyenne Haynes (Stapleton) lip-syncs and rocks along to the song on-stage.

 “Blow” is the latest track released from Sheeran’s forthcoming No. 6 Collaborations Projectalbum, which comes out Friday.
