Megan Thee Stallion Thanks Republicans for Their “WAP” Criticism

When Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B released “WAP” in late summer, the collaboration instantly became a pop culture phenomenon. The song debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and featured a star-studded music video. Soon after, dance challenges flooded TikTok feeds everywhere, and sorry was the city block that didn’t have this song blasting outside of a nearby window or a passing car.

So widespread was the “WAP” effect that the conservative critics who decried its sexually explicit prose were nearly drowned out. Nearly. But now, Megan is taking the time to thank those very critics for all the press they gave her.

When asked about receiving “heat from some cultural conservatives” during a virtual interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Megan said, “I feel like that was a little weird. I know the Republicans have been having a bad year and they probably needed to take their frustration out somewhere.”

She went on to express her gratitude. “But I want to tell them, ‘Thank you for the streams because, without you, I don’t know if we would’ve been here.'” She laughed before quickly adding, “But, no. Them people crazy.”

Cardi also previously countered the conservative criticism of “WAP,” which has been pegged the best song of the year by outlets like Rolling Stone and Pitchfork. Speaking to Billboard, she said, “I want to show people that you can do positive things, but you can also be yourself. I’m a very sexual person. I love sex, and I like to rap about it. I like to do it. I admire my husband’s penis. I love pussy, and I love my body, and I want to be able to express that. I’m just a naughty girl, and I’m not hurting nobody because I love my pussy and want to rap about it.”
