Check Out The ‘WAP’ Performance By Cardi B And Megan Thee Stallion At Wireless 2022

Cardi B welcomed Megan Thee Stallion to perform their No. 1 single together, ‘WAP,’ during her Finsbury Park edition of Wireless Festival concert this year.

This will be Cardi and Megan’s debut joint performance of ‘WAP’ in the UK. The song debuted in August 2020 and has since earned a whopping 19 Platinum certifications in five different countries (as well as a Gold certificate in France). Cardi’s two headlining performances at Wireless are part of her first trip to the UK since the song’s release, whereas Megan has been there three times in the past two years.

On 8th July, they performed the song at Wireless to a huge applause from Cardi’s sea of admirers, capping it off with a confetti explosion.

In the meantime, Chinese social media and messaging platform, WeChat censored Megan’s performance of ‘WAP’ at this year’s Coachella. Users were greeted by the visual of the platform’s censors’ failed attempt to block out elements of Megan’s performance, when they tuned in to the livestream of her act, which was illegally broadcast in China.

The song ‘WAP’ will be on Cardi’s upcoming second studio album, which has not yet been officially announced but is anticipated to drop in 2022. She responded to the criticism she received after revealing that ‘WAP’ and last year’s ‘Up’ would be included on the album. She tweeted in response to people who claimed she would only include the two songs to benefit from chart certifications- “Imagine me not putting my OWN records on my album.”

The song ‘Hot Shit,’ which Cardi released at the beginning of July with Ye and Lil Durk, will also be included on her upcoming album. The album’s official release date hasn’t been made public, but Cardi said in May that it will happen this year.
