“Wear a mask please”: parody of Cardi B rap song

“A group of students at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health got an unexpected surprise when popular rapper Cardi B signed off on their hilarious parody of ‘WAP’ reminding everyone to mask-up during the current COVID-19 surge in the run-up to the Christmas and New Year’s holidays,” according to Billboard magazine.

“’Sksksksk,’ Cardi tweeted upon seeing the clip, in which the students sing ‘Safe and chic, seven days a week/ Wear a mask, please/ Make that COVID curve weak’ in the re-named public safety plea ‘Wear a Mask Please’ (‘WAmP’). Repurposing the original’s NSFW refrain into ‘There’s a mask on this mouth,’ the remake credited to Birdi Jay and Thee Mental Notes features a giant bird wearing a mask and images of medical students following proper CDC protocol to slow the spread of the deadly virus.”

  1. I am well past please. Wear a mask or go to a holding cell with your fellow non maskers. Stay there for 96 hours, automatic go to the end of the line for hospital care.
