The overwhelming interest in Cardi's comeback track even led to the website adding an official definition for the word. Dictionary.com's pop culture section defines "Wap" as "a slang acronym that stands for wet-ass p*ssy. The acronym was created and popularized by hip-hop artist Cardi B in her hit August 2020 single 'WAP.'"
