American rapper Cardi B reveals which words she will NEVER sing on her explicit tracks

Rapper Cardi B reveals the three words she will NEVER sing – as her explicit single WAP ft. Megan Thee Stallion breaks records

She is certainly not shy when it comes to using explicit language, but even Cardi B has her limits.

The Grammy-winning rapper, 27, has revealed there are three words she will never include in her lyrics.

She told Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday that she’s banned the terms ‘moist’, ‘discharge’ and ‘horchata’.

The Bronx rapper’s three-minute single WAP includes more than 40 curse words, and its music video has inspired a raunchy TikTok dance trend.

Radio host Kyle Sandilands told Cardi B that he preferred WAP’s original version, arguing that the radio edit ‘sounds worse’.

Cardi B agreed, saying that she didn’t like the clean version because the lyric ‘wet a** p***y’ is replaced by ‘wet and gushy’.

‘I don’t even like saying it!’ she said. 

Kyle’s co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson chimed in, pointing out that women hate having their vaginas described as ‘gushy’.

Cardi B responded: ‘I would have had to replace it [“wet a** p***y”] with “bounce that big old booty”, because that’s the only thing that rhymed… it was really hard to clean this song up, because I hate the word gushy.’

However, the word ‘gushy’ was eventually used in the song’s clean edit, much to Cardi B’s disappointment.

She then revealed some of the other ‘banned’ words she doesn’t like using. 

‘I mean, ugh, “discharge” is kind of gross,’ she said. ‘A cringy word to me is “moist”. I hate it. And I hate the word “horchata”. It’s a Mexican drink. It’s really good, but I just hate that word,’ she said.

It comes after Cardi B revealed last week that her record label wasn’t exactly happy when she first played them WAP featuring Megan Thee Stallion.

‘When they heard the song, they were like, “We really like it, but that song is so explicit,”‘ she told Australian radio show Ash London Live.   

The hip hop star also claimed she had misgivings about one aspect of the song.

She feared that she was repeating the phrase ‘WAP’, short for ‘wet a** p***y’, too often during the track. 

WAP’s success marks Cardi’s fourth Billboard No. 1, following her 2017 breakout single Bodak Yellow, 2018’s I Like It, and her guest appearance on Maroon 5’s Girls Like You later that year.
