5 July 2021 - Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion - WAP

The most infamous song of 2020 is finally here on Wicked Guilty Pleasures.  

The song itself was a huge hit worldwide, both commercially and critically, but let's look at it a little closer.

It is a collaboration between two women who rap, a field largely dominated by men.  It is, in fact, arguably the biggest hit by two collaborating rap artists.

It is a very explicit song, almost to the point of absurdity.  And, it is unapologetically so - neither of these women care if you're offended.

And the song is a true collaboration.  As much as their music demands a bit of bravado, neither upstages the other.  

Plus, the use of tigers in the video sparked a feud with Carole Baskin.... so, there's that.  

I have to admit something.

I wasn't a huge fan of this song until I heard this mashup with "We Appreciate Power" by Grimes.  Completely different song. Brilliant choice both titular (look at what that title spells) and musically.
