“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 Sukihana, Rubi 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 Montana, Post Malone and Rvssian, released in September 2019.

The 26-year-old Brazilian superstar has signed with Brandon Silverstein’s S10 Entertainment for worldwide management, joining a roster that includes Normani and Jacob Banks.
“Anitta is a global superstar who continues to push the envelope musically,” said Silverstein in a statement. “At S10, we’re excited to continue to both build her international platform and extend her influence throughout North America.

“After five years taking care of my own career, I’ve decided to pass the baton,” Anitta wrote on Instagramto her more than 40 million followers in a lengthy Portuguese-language post typical of her openness with her fans.
“After searching for a long time, I found the American version of my head. Truth is, the mix of my head and and my brother’s was always the perfect balance for our crazy ideas. Brandon comes to our Anitta family, like everyone else has, learning humbly about us, with a lot of respect for everything we’ve built and eager to win.”
Anitta was previously managed by Shots Studiooutside Brazil and has parted ways amicably with company heads John and Sam Shahidi, who were among those posting congrats on Instagram.
She’s currently working on a new album and continues to tour internationally. Her docuseries, Vai Anitta, can be seen on Netflix.
The 27-year-old Colombian singerhas unveiled a star-studded remix of “Body Count” featuring Normani and Kehlani.
The strummy sing-along to self-love finds Reyez among the company of women in no need of the companionship of a mediocre man. Normani flexes a silky double-time flow as she demands “some f-cking respect” and Kehlani — who continues her months-long winning streak of featured verses — sings about finding her self-love in the company of another woman.
Produced by legendary R&B hitmaker Babyface and the Rascals, the remix will feature on her sophomore EP Being Human In Public, which has already spawned “Apple Juice” and “Sola.”
Earlier this month, Reyez gave a debut performance at the MTV VMAs and made a cameo on the Calvin Harris–Sam Smith jam “Promises.”
Reyez will be a fixture at music festivals nationwide during the summer, including this weekend’s Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn and Jay-Z‘s Made in America Festival over Labor Day weekend.
Being Human in Public is due out sometime this fall on FMLY/Island.
