However, despite all this success, the song has faced serious criticism due to its graphic nature! In fact, Cardi does not let her own daughter listen to WAP, saying that it is an adult song and as a parent, she has a responsibility towards her daughter. Nevertheless, this does not mean that Cardi will sit back and let people criticize her work.

In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the rapper claimed that most of the criticism of her song comes from Republicans! She pointed out that it was not the elected officials who opposed the song but rather social media influencers who have a ‘right-leaning’ following. Cardi explained that the song comes off as vulgar to religious and conservative people but not to her. She grew up listening to such songs and for her, these are pretty normal! 


Well, everyone has their own opinion on art. WAP is definitely a song that will not fit right with everyone and criticism can be expected to continue flooding in. However, Cardi has indicated that she will openly defend her song and reply to all the haters! What do you think about WAP?
