Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are celebrating the success of their single ‘WAP’ by giving away a million dollars to “powerful women”.

The sexually explicit song, of course, went to number one in the US and number four in the UK, despite (and probably helped by) a load of right wing commentators saying they didn’t like it.

“Y’all made ‘WAP’ amazing”, Cardi B told her followers on Twitter yesterday. “We’re partnering with Twitter and Cash App to give away a total of $1 million dollars to celebrate all you powerful women out there. Tell us why you or a woman you know can use a piece of the $”.

Sure it reads like a spam email, but the two musicians have subsequently retweeted numerous women posting about the $500 they have received. Now we just need conservatives to decide how they’re going to see this as offensive and maybe there’ll be some more wealth to redistribute.
