Megan Thee Stallion Hailed By Congresswoman Maxine Waters For ‘WAP’ Track! Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s late collaboration “WAP” took the internet by storm, with conservatives and misogynists criticizing the empowering ballad dedicated to female pleasure. However, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters appears to stand on the right side of history, as she supports Meg and Cardi’s 2020 hit.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Waters praised Megan’s “WAP” after some young People in her life asked her to listen to the song.
“I listen to the young people around me and they may tell me something maybe you ought to pay attention to. But then they told me to look at, was it WAP? Don’t worry, don’t worry, don’t worry. I said, ‘Now that’s audacity. That is audacity.’ And that is the ability for women to take charge of what they want to say,” she said. “I had paid attention to the young gangster rap time, when men were in charge. They said whatever they wanted to say about women, what have you. But women didn’t say, for a long time, what they could say or wanted to say or dared to say. And so I thought ‘that’s audacity.’”
Megan and Waters also discussed matters education and the power of standing up for oneself.
“She’s so inspirational and reminded me to keep doing me and standing firm in what I believe in,” the Houston rapper tweeted about the congresswoman.

“I write all this to say that I’m so incredibly proud of you and how you have used your voice to uplift Black women,” Waters wrote at the time. “I know that Black women and girls everywhere thank you for the way you so fiercely have their back. I want you to know that I have your back, too.”
