Content creation is a competitive game. The internet has provided multiple platforms for billions of people to post their opinions, creations and passions, so getting noticed is difficult.
That is why local YouTuber, Delecia K, was right to be ecstatic when she found out that none other than Cardi B had seen something she'd done. Delecia's content is centred around beauty, with many of her posts focusing on makeup and hair looks with tips and tricks of how to achieve them.
One particular look was inspired by the music video for the global hit song WAP by Cardi B. Delecia recreated a purple and green ensemble that Cardi wears in the video. The rapper came across Delecia's recreation and gave her a shoutout on Instagram Live.
Cardi B currently has 77.4 million Instagram followers so it's no wonder Delecia was excited about hearing the news. The blogger took to her Twitter account to gush about the exchange.
In other WAP and Cardi-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on how fans should not expect the song to be winning any Grammy awards any time soon.
Fans of Cardi B's hit-single WAP feat Megan Thee Stallion were disappointed to learn that the song would not be taking home any trophies at the 2021 Grammys. The track has been a global hit but has no chance of winning a Grammy because Cardi and her team did not submit it for consideration.
Some interpreted the news as a complete mistake and thought that Cardi B had accidentally missed the submission window and cost her work a nomination. That would have been a tragedy since the song broke a streaming record in its first week of being released and is undoubtedly one of the hits of the year.
But, as with many moves in the music industry, it seems keeping it out of the Grammy-race was a strategy. Variety.com reported that the rapper decided to instead submit WAP for consideration in the 2022 Grammy Awards season.
The decision was supposedly meant to coincide with the release of a new album that Cardi will be dropping around the same time and build hype for that.
