Lewis Capaldi appears to have finally learned the meaning of the word kegel – all thanks to smash hit “WAP” track by rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. The 23-year-old singer-songwriter is currently making headlines for discovering that a kegel is a pelvic floor exercise. Clearly, the sexually-charged “WAP” lyrics are also proving educational to some.
Lewis has been thanking 27-year-old rapper Cardi for teaching him the word’s true meaning after himself reciting parts of the “WAP” lyrics. Check it out below.
Click here for the video. Scroll for a summary. The selfie footage showed the Scottish singer repeating the following lyrics to lead into his discovery.
“Spit in my mouth, look in my eyes, I do a kegel while it’s inside.”
The “Someone You Loved” hitmaker then revealed:
“I thought a kegel is what a horse did when it kicked back but apparently it’s clench and releasing exercises to help something with the vagina.”
Seemingly grateful to have garnered a little knowledge from “Press” rapper Cardi and “Savage” rapper Megan, Lewis then gave out some thanks.
Lewis continued to say: “It’s clench and releasing exercises to strengthen or tighten the pelvic floor,” adding: “Some women do them for their vaginas… to tighten them. Big thanks to Cardi B.”
Lewis is not the only the celebrity to have publicly shared a reaction to the track racking up a record-breaking 93 million streams in its first week. The Billboard no. 1 hit has garnered reactions from LL Cool J, defending the song, Halsey, likewise backing it, and “Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino – he recreated the video.
Quarantine has brought the “Tiger King” phase, the no toilet roll phase, the banana bread phase, and, seemingly the “WAP” phase. The video also including a high-profile cameo from 23-year-old makeup mogul Kylie Jenner and stars including Normani and Rubi Rose was released on August 7, giving Cardi her fourth no.1 U.S. single and Megan her second.
Cardi has made headlines for defending the presence of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kylie in the video, also fronting media outlets for revealing which three words she would never rap.
Cardi, happy to rap about “parking it” in “this little garage” – and far more explicit – has now revealed which three words gross her out. Likewise, the ones you won’t find her rapping.
“I mean, ugh, “discharge” is kind of gross,’ she said on the “Kyle and O Radio Show.” “A cringy word to me is “moist”. I just hate it. ‘And I hate the word “horchata”. It’s a Mexican drink. It’s really good, but I just hate that word,” she added.
