Cardi B's single "WAP" featuring Megan Thee Stallion has debuted top of the Billboard charts.

The achievement means that Cardi has landed her fourth number one and Megan Thee Stallion her second.

According to Billboard, the song racked up 93 million U.S. streams in the week ending Aug. 13, the most for any track ever in its first week of release.

Speaking to i-D magazine, Cardi B revealed the challenges of shooting a music video during a global pandemic.

“We had to spend $100,000 dollars just on testing,” she told i-D in a recent interview. “Everybody on the shoot had to get tested for coronavirus.” She continued, “We had a tiger and a leopard there, but we didn’t film with them in there because of safety and because of the pandemic. We spliced those scenes together,” she added.

The song has received criticism from some who say the track is too raunchy -- but it seems that millions of listeners disagree.
