1979 - September - While it was not the first single to include rapping, "Rapper's Delight" is credited for introducing hip hop music to a wide audience, reaching the top 40 in the United States, as well as the top three in the United Kingdom and number-one in Canada. It was a prototype for various types of rap music, incorporating themes such as boasting, dance, honesty and sex, with the charisma and enthusiasm of James Brown. The track interpolates Chic's "Good Times", resulting in Chic's Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards suing Sugar Hill Records for copyright infringement; a settlement was reached that gave the two songwriting credits. The track was recorded in a single take.
2020 - August - Released through Atlantic Records as the lead single from Cardi's upcoming second studio album featuring vocals from Megan Thee Stallion, "WAP" received widespread critical acclaim for its sex-positive message, while some conservative commentators criticized its explicit nature. It debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Cardi B her fourth number-one single in the US, extending her record as the female rapper with the most number-one singles in Hot 100 history. It was Megan Thee Stallion's second Hot 100 chart-topper. The song broke the record for the largest opening streaming week for a song in US history and debuted atop the Billboard Digital Song Sales, Streaming Songs, Hot Rap Songs, and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs charts. Cardi B became the only female rapper to achieve Hot 100 number-one singles in two different decades (2010s and 2020s). The single spent a total of four weeks atop the chart, while also spending multiple weeks at number one in Australia, Canada, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. "WAP" is the first number one single on the inaugural Billboard Global 200, topping the chart for three weeks.
2020 - September - Since it's was obvious that a WAP mashup is required of all mashup producers working in 2020, Pimpdaddysupreme goes for MAXIMUM PUN and starts work on "WAPPER'S DELIGHT". Honestly surprised that no one had already taken it. Distracted by Twitch streaming on Bootie Mashup and hosting Masters Of Mash, he neglect to finish it until the weekend of Black Friday. This song was finally released as a Cyber Monday exclusive on November 30th, 2020 for download and streaming on sowndhaus.audio.
