The 63rd annual Grammys saw a whole host of artists recognized for their contribution to the music industry.
However, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s performance left a lot of people outraged…
Including Candace Owens who made some bold claims about the meaning behind the song “WAP.”
And of course, there has been a mixed reaction about the comments online.
The news became a hot topic after Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion performed a “clean” version of the hit track at the Grammys.
But, evidently, it wasn’t clean enough for some viewers, who have been left completely outraged as a result.
Keep scrolling to find out exactly what Candace Owens had to say about the issue…
Now, as you may be aware, “WAP” isn’t exactly the family-friendly track of the decade.
Cardi B and Meghan Thee Stallion’s hit collaboration has been taking the world by storm ever since its release in August last year.
The song is riddled with sexual connotations and innuendos from start to finish.
We all know the lyrics at this point.
The rest of the song weighs in on some pretty explicit sexual activity, which I’m not going to write about here – for obvious reasons.
The music video was released, and it blew us all away.
Because Cardi “wanted different types of bad b****es in my video. Black, white, Latin, mix.”
One segment of the video shows the reality star walking seductively through the house in a revealing leopard print bodysuit – this then resulted in a petition being launched to get her removed from the video.
In the days following its release, Cardi excitedly took to Instagram to share that the song had reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and had the most streams in the first opening week in music history.
And the powerhouse collaboration alone has amassed more than ninety million streams.
With women from all over the world claiming to feel “empowered” by its lyrics.
Some people aren’t too impressed with the track, slamming it as “inappropriate” and “damaging to feminism.”
But one thing that most people can agree on is that “WAP” is not appropriate for family listening.
Many have expressed their concern surrounding the effect this song will have upon young and vulnerable ears…
So, after seeing the duo perform the track at the 2021 Grammys, people were less than impressed.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion performed the song live for the first time during the 63rd annual event.
For their set, the stage was decked out with poles, huge stiletto shoes, and a giant bed – did we expect anything less?
Megan kicked off their joint performance with a cabaret-style medley of “Body” and her now Grammy-winning smash “Savage”…
Before the opening notes of “WAP” started.
Admittedly, it was a “clean” version of the song, with certain words omitted out from the verses.
However, viewers have still been left outraged by the sexual nature of the choreography, with many claiming that it was way too explicit for a primetime show.
