Female rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have faced floods of attention and criticism for the sexually explicit nature of the pair’s latest collaborative piece, “WAP,” after its release Aug. 7.

1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list and having the most weekly streams in 2020, some critics — such as artist CeeLo Green and conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro — are less focused on the song’s impressive success and more on its provocative nature.

Having now apologized for his statements, in an interview with Far Out Magazine , Green discussed the female rappers and compared their “salacious gesturing” to artist Nicki Minaj.

In 2018, a collaboration between male rappers Kanye West and Lil Pump called, “I Love It,” also left its mark as No.

Cruz-Lopez said she does not think people’s negative reactions toward sexually explicit songs from female rappers will change anytime soon, but having an open mind about the topic will help.
