Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘WAP’ Has Made ARIA Chart History

The world continues to be dominated by ‘WAP’ discourse thanks to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s mega-hit, and now the song has made history all the way over here in Australia.

The song, unsurprisingly, currently sits atop the ARIA Singles Chart, marking the first time either artist has earned a #1 single in Australia.

Additionally, it is the first female-led hip-hop song to top the chart in a staggering 28 years. The last female-led hip-hop song to do it was Salt-N-Pepa’s ‘Let’s Talk About Sex’ all the way back in 1992.

On top of that, it is the first all-female hip-hop collaborative track to ever top the ARIA Singles Chart. In comparison, it is the third all-female hip-hop collab to top the charts in America ever, following Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Say So (Remix)’ and Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s ‘Savage (Remix)’. Both of those songs were also released this year.

The song has reached all corners of pop culture, becoming somewhat of a hot conversation point among both the Democratic and Republican political parties in America. Even quarantine figurehead Carole Baskin chimed in for the video, to which Cardi promptly responded: ‘Girl you killed your goddamn husband’.
