Since it's release Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" video has been the most talked-about topic in the music industry. Whether it's Kylie Jenner's cameo or criticisms regarding the raunchiness of the record, everyone has chimed in on the track.
The new topic surrounding the video is the six-figure amount that was spent on COVID testing, alone. In a new interview with i-D Magazine, Cardi B revealed that her budget for coronavirus testing cost $100,000.
"We had to spend $100,000 dollars just on testing," said Cardi. "Everybody on the shoot had to get tested for coronavirus. 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."
"WAP" is currently on pace to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 next week.
