< Back to question What's the problem with 'WAP'? Show more Show less

In August 2020, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion broke streaming world records with their rap duet "WAP". Its critics point to its allegedly raunchy video and lyrics, calling its proud descriptions of female arousal as morally corrupt, anti-feminist and grotesque. Others say that lyrics such as “I said certified freak, seven days a week” are liberating; that they reclaim female sexual agency and empower marginalised groups.

There is no problem with WAP Show more Show less

WAP redresses existing power imbalances in our societies.

WAP is a feminist battlecry

WAP legitimises the work of female sex workers, who have long been seen as victims in the West. By showing that women can choose to sexualise and commodify themselves, the song empowers these groups.
