    American rapper and songwriter Cardi B last week released her new music video WAP with rapper Megan Thee Stallion and reality show star Kylie Jenner. It gained over 26 million views during its first 24 hours on YouTube.

    Cardi B has shared an unusual detail about shooting her latest music video, WAP, saying that she spent $100,000 on COVID-19 testing for the film crew.

    "It was kind of weird shooting the video in the age of corona. Like, we had to spend $100,000 dollars just on testing. Everybody on the shoot had to get tested for coronavirus", Cardi told reporters.

    She also mentioned that they had a tiger and a leopard at the shooting, but "didn’t film with them in there because of safety and because of the pandemic". 

    "One of the scariest parts was the snake scene. I was naked and one of them peed all over me", Cardi said.

    While the song was well-received, thousands of Cardi B's fans have demonstrated their dissatisfaction with reality star Kylie Jenner's cameo.

    One disappointed viewer even filed a petition with Change.org to have Kylie removed. The petition has received almost 47,000 signatures so far.

    The petition reads: "The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone".

    The video now has over 85.3 million views on YouTube.
