Are City Girls feuding with Cardi B after she dropped 'WAP'? Fans wonder why they didn't feature in music video
They said that they openly supported Cardi plenty of times but apparently, Cardi did not support them when they dropped their music
As soon as rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's much-awaited track 'WAP' dropped on August 7, it took the Internet by storm. The steamy song which is trending at number one on US YouTube charts was also released with limited edition signed 'WAP' vinyl on Cardi’s site. The channel has a whooping 12.9M subscribers who were eagerly waiting for the video to drop since Cardi announced her collaboration with Megan months back.
The video that dropped on August 7 shows Cardi B giving her fans a sneak peak into her world that exudes sultry, racy and titillating visuals. The song starts with a water fountain sculpture of the two rappers donning the same look seen in the teaser photo shared previously, as well as some high-quality visuals which include a golden snake and a mansion bathed in pastel colors. The video is already setting some very high expectations.
In a live Youtube conversation before dropping the new visual, the pair discussed the making of the clip and appreciated each other. They expressed anxiety before the video was officially out. Cardi also addressed how she drew flak on social media for taking time between releases. The video is very sensual and filled with erotic imageries which is why it was censored making Cardi call it "nasty a** sh*t."
Soon after the video was out, as expected, fans went crazy but rap duo City Girls Yung Miami and JT seemed a bit salty. A tweet mentioned how the Miami-based duo responded to fans asking why they didn't support Cardi’s new creation. They said that they openly supported Cardi plenty of times but apparently, Cardi did not support them when they dropped their music. "CityGirls respond to fan asking why they didn’t support CardiB’s #WAP. Video: 'B***hes always down the city girls' throat about support but a b***h ain't support us when we dropped...I openly supported Cardi plenty of times but what y’all not finna do is bully a b***h NEXT'," tweeted a user.

City Girls reached 100 million streams worldwide on August 7, the same day that Cardi bombarded the internet with 'WAP'. Their twitter handle often celebrates such milestones with fans. On July 31, they released the fifth and final episode of a docu-series produced by Quality Films that features honest footage captured throughout JT and Yung Miami’s turbulent lives and careers.

At the same time, others were tired of the internet pitting the women against each other. "I'm literally so tired of you guys pitting women against each other, they literally don’t owe you anything," one tweeted.

Another said, "'WAP' entered top10 Itunes within an HOUR. Trollz did it within 10 MINUTES. Embarrassing.”

Some feel that City Girls did not say anything and that its just rumors circulating to pit them against each other for celebrity gossip. They didn't say anything, people are just calling them out for not posting anything about cardi's new music, as if they had to say anything, get it?" tweeted one.

City Girls came to the limelight after guest spotting on Drake's chart-topping hit, 'In My Feelings'. They have released the platinum-certified Top 40 singles 'Twerk' (featuring Cardi B) and 'Act Up', both of which were included on their debut studio album, 'Girl Code'. Their second studio album, 'City on Lock', was released on June 20, 2020. Since they previously collaborated with Cardi on ‘Twerk’, people began wondering what is the point of debate now as both have shared a bonhomie before. "didn't they collab with her and shade Nicki too what's wrong with them," tweeted one.

While rumors continue to run rife, is there really a rift in their relations with Cardi over 'WAP' is yet to be confirmed.
