It just took three days to the newest music video by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion for “WAP” to reach over 58 million views on Youtube. It could be attributed to the grade of the song or tight outfits or Kylie Jenner. Here it is possible to find the reason why “WAP” music video is so intense!
Watch the video:
“WAP” BREAKS STREAMING RECORD IN THE US
Yes, the Brand New Music Video by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion went via the roofs in America. The video just requires four hours and 23 minutes to break the pole in iTunes graphs there. With “All Genres” and “Rap / HipHop”! “WAP” came in the top list with the peak of the streaming graphs quicker in America. That shows the high quality or for the hype of this video.
SEX STILL SELLS
Yes, the new video for “WAP” is hard at the soft porn limit. Skimpy outfits, fountains with breasts, necklines that you can look into from space, everything is there. That is one reason why “WAP” scores so well on YouTube, but nothing unusual for a Cardi B video either. Some people would still like to assume that Cardi B is clumsy sexualization of their own gender.
Refer TO FEMALE 90S RAP ICONS
But when you simply take two moments to manage this”WAP” video, then you immediately notice: The demonstration of this video, the drapes, the sexy moves – most this includes a certain reason and can be anything but an inexpensive display of the body. This video from the”WAP” film includes just two references to 90s rap icons. The hairstyle can be a homage into Lisa” left eye” Lopez in TLC, the leopard bodysuit is similar to Lil’Kim.
90s rap Celebrity Foxy Brown is Additionally honored from the video by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. On the back of the traditional record “Ill Na Na” you’re able to easily see Foxy Brown at a dark bikini facing a pool-like gloomy background. That can be about the way you watch Cardi B along with Megan posing at the video:
Appearance in 90s outfits
The team around Cardi B also thought about the outfits and left nothing to chance. Here we see singer Normani, for example, wearing a black and white vintage ensemble by Azzedine Alaia. According to Billboard Magazine, supermodel Naomi Campbell wore a similar outfit down the catwalk in the 90s.
THE KYLIE JENNER CONTROVERSY : “WAP”
Kylie Jenner, singer Normani, internet star/singer Rubi Rose, Rosalia, and the rapper Mulatto (who, by the way, used to drive dragster races) are the stars in the video alongside Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.
All are African-Americans or at least people of color. Except for Kylie Jenner. In Travis Scott, she has an Afro-American rapper as husband and child father. Nevertheless, the fans think: Kylie does not fit into this team line-up. The reason: first of all, the somewhat random performance of a door opening. Of course, there were heavy video memes about Kylie’s appearance in the video for “WAP” over the weekend after the release.
65,000 VOTES AGAINST KYLIE JENNER’S APPEARANCE ON “WAP” VIDEO: Online petition
There is even a petition on the internet that demands that Kylie Jenner should be removed from the video. In addition to the somewhat inappropriate door opening, there is a more serious reason for this. The fans accuse Kylie Jenner of enriching herself with black culture and therefore does not fit into the video.
CARDI B IS BEHIND KYLIE JENNER
Cardi B sees neither a culture theft nor a senseless performance in Kylie’s appearance. On Instagram, Cardi once again made it clear that “WAP” is not about skin color, but about strong female personalities.
Kylie Jenner’s birthday was on August 10th, right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the “WAP” video. In addition to a greeting for B-Day, there was again a confirmation for Kylie’s appearance.
