Cardi B revealed that she really wanted Lizzo to appear in the infamous “WAP” video.
“I’m cool with Lizzo and everything. Like, we’ve been sending DMs to each other and all that. But she was on vacation and she wasn’t in town. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh,’ because I had a whole vision about how I want to see Lizzo and everything,” she told Hot 97.
“It was so important to me to include different women that are different races and come from different backgrounds, but are so powerful and influential.”
The song and its video — which made headlines when it debuted in August because of its risque lyrics — featured Megan Thee Stallion, Kylie Jenner, Normani and Doja Cat.
