There’s no doubt that WAP is one of the biggest hits of last year.
WAP had people dancing at a time where actual dance floors are a strict no-no. The song is a fun, lively track that gave life to what was an extraordinarily boring summer.
However, you’d probably stick your AirPods in if your children were around, with the majority of its lyrics not exactly being appropriate for baby ears. As it turns out, Cardi B is very much the same in this regard.
A debate began after a New Year’s Eve Instagram Live video, which saw Cardi B and her fellow WAP rapper Megan Thee Stallion dancing and singing away to WAP, before suddenly stopping the music when two-year-old Kulture entered the room.
Cardi B’s panicked reaction was maybe not too different from many non-famous moms who had to turn off a late-night episode of Sex & the City after hearing little footsteps.
But the Instagram Live video sparked an unnecessary debate on why Cardi B would make tracks that she wouldn’t have her own kid listen to.
The answer is pretty obvious. Some music is simply intended for adult ears, and just as no adult would willingly choose to add Baby Shark to their music playlist, no child should really be listening to X-rated music.
Cardi B took to Twitter to speak out about the matter:
“Ya needs to stop with this already! I’m not jojosiwa ! I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults. Parents are responsible on what their children listen too or see. I’m a very sexual person but not around my child just like every other par Aent should be,” she tweeted.
“There’s moms who are strippers. Pop p*ssy, twerk all night for entertainment does that mean they do it around their kids ? No! Stop makin this a debate. It’s pretty much common sense,” Cardi B added.
The singer-rapper has every right to make the music she wants, all while enforcing rules on what her child listens to. It’s really as simple as that.
