WAP - Dancing Lasha Tumbai Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Verka Serduchka Mashup

It’s the sexually explicit rap track that’s taking the global music charts by storm. But as well as topping countdowns in the U.S., Britain, Australia, Ireland and elsewhere, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s “WAP” has become a mashup favourite on social media. And now the “WAP” mashup to end all “WAP” mashups has arrived — Cardi and Megan, meet Verka Serduchka!

“WAP”/”Dancing Lasha Tumbai” mashup — Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and Verka Serduchka

The rearrangement — created by the English drag queen ikarly — sees Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s rap verses laid over the iconic eurodance beats of Ukraine’s Eurovision 2007 entry “Dancing Lasha Tumbai”.

While Verka has shared the screen with Hollywood actors Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statham, few would have thought to link her family-friendly cult classic with a song that’s tied conservative commentators up in knots.

Yet something clicked, and the two-minute clip is quickly going viral on Twitter, particularly among the Eurovision fandom.

At the time of writing, it was approaching 60,000 views and had been either liked or retweeted over 4,000 times.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK alum Gothy Kendoll summed up the feelings of many, simply writing “oh. my. god.”.

Content warning: The “WAP” lyrics are very much NSFW.

“Dancing Lasha Tumbai” — an enduring Eurovision favourite

Despite its seemingly throwaway nature, Verka Serduchka’s “Dancing Lasha Tumbai” has gone on to become one of the most beloved entries in Eurovision history.

The infectious number became a massive hit throughout Europe following its second-place finish in the 2007 contest. Its popularity has endured in the years since, with Verka regularly returning to make cameos at the contest, including in 2014, 2017 and 2019.

Things were taken to the next level during the 2019 contest, when Verka stood in the wings and let Greek popstar Eleni Foureira put her own spin on the number during the “Switch Song” interval act.

In the summer of 2020, “Dancing Lasha Tumbai” was crowned the “new” winner of 2007 during a #EurovisionAgain rewatch.

Ok but where is the studio version of Eleni Foureira’s version of Dancing Lasha Tumbai? It’s way overdue.

One of the major reasons that I love Eurovision (and national selection) songs is because they are, in general, no profanity and vulgarity. There have obviously been songs with sexualized themes (e.g., Eye Cue’s ‘Lost and found’, After Dark’s ‘Ah nar ni tar saken i egna hander’, Ida Maria’s ‘Scandilove’, etc.), but it’s always in good taste, harmless, and never so hardcore to the point of being simply unlistenable, like whatever the hell this “(CR)WAP”/”Dancing lasha tumbai” mashup is! After hearing this mix, I need to spend the rest of the day listening to Ralph Siegel’s Eurovision entries, so that… Read more »

You are making some very good points there.

What he is doing is shaming people for being comfortable with their body and sexuality, which any artist is free to do.

Oh no, Ashton… That really was not my intention. I am extremely sorry for offending you and anyone else here. If I may explain myself… I just found the lyrics of the song was just such a shock to my system. I’m extremely conservative, and have not spoken a curse/swear word ever in my life. So hearing those words used in this song, was just overwhelming and startling, especially in the context of the very PC Eurovision-related songs generally showcased on this site. Once again, I apologize to you and the rest of the Wiwiblogg’s readers for my naivety and… Read more »

Whoa it’s ok, I understand it isn’t for everyone. You don’t have to like the song and that’s perfectly fine. Thank you for this, though, but you don’t have to go so far as to not comment again, don’t let a differing opinion stop you from expressing yours. Have a very good day 🙂

OMG Africavision. If you read this: please reconsider. You make such well written comments with reasearch and good analysis in a polite manner. You have the right to having an opinion. Don’t take it on you if someone does not like it. You do you 🙂 Even if you don’t come back 🙁

Don’t feel bad Africavision, you’re totally entitled to express your opinions and you do it so well. This mash up made me chuckle but I’ll admit I’m a bit of a prude when it comes to sexually explicit lyrics, it’s just not for me. Perhaps I’ll follow your sweet advice and clear
my mind by listening to Ralph Siegel, that made me chuckle too.

How bad do things have to be for “Dancing Lasha Tumbai” to be the part of a mashup that has more musical merit?

Edit: I know you guys have your reasons for not covering the JESC NF season but THIS is what you’d rather be reporting on? Really?

just saying WAP is a bop and has a lot of musical merit, which isn’t rly up to you to judge

What I really don’t understand is that Wiwibloggs isn’t covering the Junior Eurovision Song Contest now (nor did they in 2018, when Daneliya was a participant), yet these days we are inundated with Daneliya’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ articles. Surely, JESC stories are more important on a Eurovision site than AGT articles. It really sucks for me, as I love watching AGT, but here, in South Africa, it will only be shown on our TV screens in many months from now, and now I already know that Daneliya doesn’t win. As a huge JESC fan, I would’ve rooted for her, but… Read more »

You can’t be a huge fan of Daneliya if you don’t follow what she’s up to. Any true fan would know the news regardless of whether wiwibloggs writes about it or not.

I said that I am a huge JESC fan, not that I am a huge Daneliya fan alone. It would be physically impossible for any JESC fan to religiously follow the progress of all 266 of the past JESC artists.

I believe it’s the duty of Wiwibloggs to report Eurovision news, AND provide updates on Eurovision-related stuff. Sure, they don’t report much on Junior Eurovision, but some surface level Eurovision stans reading this blog would just probably launch into a “omg nobody cares” if there were JESC NF news. But Wiwi will give coverage towards JESC most important aspects, don’t worry, they didn’t forget. It’s just that they prioritize Eurovision as THE contest to write on. And AGT is like the biggest TV reality competition so of course it’s exciting that (J)ESC stars go on there, and Daneliya is a… Read more »
