On Friday, Cardi B released her first single featuring Megan Thee Stallion after a nine-month hiatus.
The song, titled” WAP,” was accompanied by a new music video, which garnered more than 59 million views on Youtube.
In addition to the two rappers, the video featured cameos from Normani, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Mulatto, Kylie Jenner, and Rosalía.
While the project received much love from fans, it also endured massive criticism surrounding Jenner’s appearance. Most argued that her contribution to the video did not equate to Normani’s.
Danielle Young, a journalist for Essence magazine, tweeted, “Normani did ALL this, and Kylie walked down the hall and opened the door. If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”
According to, the widely liked tweet prompted Cardi’s response in a now-deleted tweet, which said, “Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f–king a– off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat&hook it what makes you want to shake your a–.”
The grammy-winning rapper also explained why she added Jenner in the first place, saying,” Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid[‘s] b-day party.” As she continued, she explained that Offset, and Stormi’s dad, Travis Scott, are “real close,” and that Kylie’s mom, Kris Jenner, has “been giving me advice on certain things.” She also said that the video was not about race.
“Not everything is about race,” she tweeted. “There’s issues out here in the world that it is about race that I preach all the time about . This is not about f–kin race.”
