By now everyone and their nonna have heard WAP by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, with its pussy-popping bassline and lyrics that make porn look tame, but have you ever seen it interpreted in sign language?
Well, a video of an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is currently going gangbusters online after it was shared to TikTok, and then to the rest of the world.
Despite the amazing viral vid being deleted by the original TikTok poster, the clip still exists all over Twitter, and we have it for you right here.
In the clip, interpreter @kelly4access does an incredible job of turning the rather explicit lyrics of WAP into clear and concise sign language interpretations during a live Megan Thee Stallion concert.
Please, watch for yourself and bask in the talent.

What’s more amazing however is the fact that @kelly4access has used her newfound burst of internet fame to amplify the work of Deaf ASL teachers and interpreters of colour. What a fkn queen.
“If you’re new to my page you’ll quickly see this is a space meant to amplify the work of Deaf creators and to provide access to social media content for the Deaf community,” Kelly wrote to Instagram.
“I’m a hearing interpreter so I do not teach.”
“Support Deaf creators. And if you’re still wondering why Deaf or hard of hearing people go to concerts follow these pages and learn something new. Seeing an interpreter at a concert shouldn’t be shocking. Seeing a deaf interpreter on tour with every artist should be the norm!”
Back in 2020, @kelly4access shared her very own interpretation of the WAP music video, gallivanting through the WAP house and giving the spicy lyrics new life with a sign language interpretation.
No doubt this vid caught the eye of one Megan Thee Stallion, because now it looks like @kelly4access is working right by her side.
The vid honestly slaps, and you should give it a watch.
I’ve honestly watched the viral video on repeat heaps of times, it’s just so amazing to watch how WAP is interpreted by a professional.
Be sure to follow and support ASL interpreters if you were a fan, and be sure to keep all stupid questions to yourself.
