The “Savage” rapper, 25, and the “Bodak Yellow” rapper, 27, respectively, collaborated for new track “WAP” and an accompanying music video.

About Stallion
A stallion is a male horse that has not been gelded (castrated).
Stallions follow the conformation and phenotype of their breed, but within that standard, the presence of hormones such as testosterone may give stallions a thicker, “cresty” neck, as well as a somewhat more muscular physique as compared to female horses, known as mares, and castrated males, called geldings.
Temperament varies widely based on genetics, and training, but because of their instincts as herd animals, they may be prone to aggressive behavior, particularly toward other stallions, and thus require careful management by knowledgeable handlers. However, with proper training and management, stallions are effective equine athletes at the highest levels of many disciplines, including horse racing, horse shows, and international Olympic competition.
The term “stallion” dates from the era of Henry VII, who passed a number of laws relating to the breeding and export of horses in an attempt to improve the British stock, under which it was forbidden to allow uncastrated male horses to be turned out in fields or on the commons; they had to be “kept within bounds and tied in stalls.” (The term “stallion” for an uncastrated male horse dates from this time; stallion = stalled one.) “Stallion” is also used to refer to males of other equids, including zebras and donkeys.

About 'WAP'

“WAP” marks Cardi B’s first new song in nine months and the first new music from Megan Thee Stallion since she was shot in July.

On Instagram at the time, she wrote, “I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me.” She added that she expected to make a full recovery after police officers drove her to the hospital where she underwent surgery to remove the bullets.

During an Instagram Live Friday following the song’s release, Stallion spoke about the shooting. 

“I felt very betrayed by all my friends. I felt very shocked, very scared. But the one thing that y’all need to know about me is I’m not a person who is able to be down for a long time,” she said. “I don’t like to be victimized.”

‘WAP’ song

The provocative, NSFW song focuses on sexual female empowerment.

“Talk your (expletive), bite your lip / Ask for a car while you ride that (expletive)” Stallion says.

Cardi adds, “Let’s roleplay, I’ll wear a disguise / I want you to park that big Mack truck right in this little garage… I don’t cook, I don’t clean / But let me tell you, I got this ring”

As of Friday, the song reached No. 1 on the iTunes chart in the United States.
