Bardi and “WAP” video director Collin Tilley revealed some fun facts about the shoot in a new episode of Vevo Footnotes, released on Thursday (October 29). Among them was the former’s desire to put a spider on her collaborator.
“I like both solos because I just really thought and I knew that it was gonna be so fire,” Cardi said. “A room completely covered with cheetah, a room covered with like, tigers. I originally wanted Megan to have a spider on her head, I don’t know why, I just thought it was gonna be so beautiful.”
Elsewhere in the clip, Cardi revealed she actually sent the record to another woman in music for the hook but it didn’t come out right.
“I just had like an original hook to ‘WAP’ and I didn’t really like it,” she explained. “I sent it to some female artists to see if they could do the hook, they couldn’t really do it and I started playing around again with the hook and was like, ‘You know what? I’m just going to keep it like that.’
She also added she had intentions of making it slightly less x-rated … but she just couldn’t think of an alternative.
“I just felt like the hook also had a lot of ‘wet ass pussy, wet ass pussy,'” Cardi added. “I just felt like ‘pussy, pussy, pussy,’ and I just didn’t like that. But, I don’t know I couldn’t come up with anything else so, whatever.”
The song has since been certified platinum and topped the Billboard 200, so it’s safe to say Cardi made the right choice.
