Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion announce a forthcoming single, WAP

The new track is due out later this week

Cardi B has shared the title and release date for a new track, “WAP”, featuring Megan Thee Stallion and announced by the pair via simultaneous Instagram posts. 

The collaboration, which will be Cardi’s first original release as a lead artist in 2020 – not counting “Coronavirus”, of course – is coming this Friday, August 7. Alongside the announcement of the single’s release date, the rappers unveiled the accompanying artwork (below).

For Megan Thee Stallion, the appearance on the track serves as a follow-up to her debut album Suga, which was released in March earlier this year (though she has also, since then, released a remix of the hit Suga song “Savage”, featuring none other than Beyoncé).

More recently, Megan suffered gunshot wounds during a July 12 altercation in a car in the Hollywood Hills. Subsequently, she’s opened up about the incident – and addressed the false narratives and memes that surrounded the shooting – in an emotional video posted to social media.

“I see a lot of people painting fake ass narratives and making up stories and all this other wack ass shit, but I also see a lot of people being very supportive and sending prayers and I just really appreciate that,” she says. “I was shot in both of my feet, and I had to get surgery to get the shit taken out, get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary.”
