Cardi B's "WAP" video was a star-studded affair, but the rapper says that she really wanted singer Lizzo to be a part of the 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 raunchy video faced some backlash from viewers who felt the female rappers should not have released such a sexually charged song -- but it reached the top spot on Billboard, even holding off rapper, Drake. The single was knocked down to number two this week by BTS.
