What Cardi B And Megan Thee Stallion's WAP Video Reveals About Their Relationship Style, Per An Expert

When Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion dropped their video for "WAP" on Aug. 7, 2020, many fans were enthralled and enticed by the meaning behind the song as well as the relationship between the two rappers. Beyond that, it left plenty of people wanting to know more about what the video says about Cardi and Megan's readiness and willingness to "[celebrate] women's sexuality by pushing it all the way to the edge, in our face, and daring us to accept it too," according to Nicole Moore, a life coach and relationship expert. 

Moore gave Nicki Swift some exclusive insight into the message that was being delivered from the stars who are both undeniably "unashamed and unabashed in their sexual desire."

The life coach and relationship expert pointed out that one "message is clear" in the video: "I can be a powerful, rich woman, fully embracing and unashamed of my sexuality. I can revel in my body and enjoy sex with you while at the same time never forgetting that as the woman, I'm actually the one who is in control." However, there's also an attitude along the lines of: "I may be pleasing you with my body but I am the one that gets the most pleasure, not just physically but out of knowing how much power I have over you."

Are you already beyond intrigued? Then keep reading because Moore let us in on so much more about what "WAP" really says about Cardi and Megan's relationship style.

WAP is all about that female BDE

"WAP is the female equivalent of big d**k energy," life coach and relationship expert Nicole Moore told Nicki Swift. Seriously, though, did you see the strategically placed phallic snakes?! "For ages, men have been allowed to brag about their sexual abilities (real or in many cases imagined) as if it's no big thing and we're supposed to find it charming," Moore explained. On the other hand, Moore notes that "when a woman has dared to speak about her sexuality, she's automatically been labeled a sl*t."

Moore explains that the "genius of this video is that Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion usurp the term 'h**s' and use it as a form of empowerment." They won't be shamed for what they want and what they do, and instead, "they proudly rock the term 'h**,' liberating women everywhere to do the same." Frankly, our expert tells us that "[i]f a h** is a woman who simply enjoys her body sexually without the inhibitions society has placed on her, then we should all be 'h**s in this house,'" just like we see in the "WAP" video.

"It's flipping the switch on the idea that women exist solely for male pleasure and declaring to women everywhere that they can be proud of their sexual gifts too," according to Moore, which makes the next detail about Cardi and Megan's relationship style make total sense.

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are alpha women

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are what life coach and relationship expert Nicole Moore deemed "Alpha Female[s]" while speaking with Nicki Swift. When it comes to what their "WAP" video says about their relationship styles, Moore explained that they "like to be in control, the one in power in the relationship and the one who is leading."

Although Moore says that "[o]ne might label this as they are women who embody the more masculine energy in a relationship ... what the video is really speaking to is they want to be the woman in power in the relationship with someone who can bring power, too."

Just take a listen to the song, and when you hear Megan say, "If he f*** me and ask 'Whose is it?' When I ride that dick, I'ma spell my name," Moore tells us that she's "clearly saying, I'm actually the one who is the alpha and in control in the relationship. You might ask me to say your name, and I might do it, but subversively I will show that I am in control." Granted, that doesn't mean that these women aren't willing to take care of those in their lives — they just might not do it in a traditional way.

These women will take care of you, but not how you might expect

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion may be alpha women, but Nicole Moore explained to Nicki Swift that "WAP" reveals that these women are also willing to be giving in relationships, "just not in the traditionally 'feminine' way." What does that mean? Well, Cardi explains it herself in "WAP," telling listeners: "I don't cook, I don't clean." Instead, these ladies will "take care of you ... by letting you have a taste of their powerful energy within."

Beyond that, Moore says that "[i]n a way, they're saying I actually have more to give to you than if I were to be placed in a traditional gender role of being that woman who leans back, lets a man lead, and who cleans and cooks."

If that's not what you're into, Cardi and Megan simply don't care. "From the video, it's clear that [they] favor a show all of who you are, this is who I am, take it or leave it style of relationship," according to Moore. The stars are "being their full selves, not holding anything back and more, they expect that their full selves are more than enough." In fact, the video — which "is about ... feeling fully confident in your value before being with" someone else — shows fans that "[a]t the end of the day, these women are saying, yes I know I'm the s**t and I know you'll see it too."
