BLACKPINK‘s Rosé just danced to “WAP” on her TikTok channel… and her performance just can’t be described in words. Read on to see her rendition for yourself!
Not long after launching her channel, Rosé uploaded a new episode of her TikTok mini-series, Pajama News. Alongside being showered with love and praise in the video’s comments, Rosé received a very unexpected reply from one fan by the name of @kstarvt: “Do the WAP bestie.”
Pajama news 🗞 | Date. 03.14.2021
The fan was referring to “WAP”—the controversial yet highly acclaimed Billboard Hot 100 song by American rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Not long after its release, “WAP” became a hit on TikTok. Choreographer Brian Esperon created a viral, floor-caressing dance routine to the song dubbed the #WAPChallenge, which reached 1.5 billion views in just one month.
Naturally, despite the fan’s request reaching almost 50,000 likes to date, no one expected Rosé to actually attempt the challenge—until a few days ago, when the soloist and BLACKPINK star shocked everyone by responding to the comment. “Maybe…” she replied, “Maaaayybeee if I reach 10M 😉.”
Rosé’s own comment quickly shot to over 80,000 likes. At the time, she was still half a million followers away from her 10 million goal. Of course, given her popularity, it didn’t take long for that milestone to arrive.
Just four days later, Rosé’s TikTok account officially reached 10 million followers, leading fans to trend the hashtag “#WAPSÉ” worldwide on Twitter alongside the likes of “Happy Easter” and “Blessed Sunday”.
Even then, many BLINKs weren’t sure Rosé would actually go through with the challenge, but this star isn’t one to back away from a promise. Lo and behold, hours after reaching 10 million followers, Rosé uploaded a new video to her TikTok account captioned, “#10M !! Here you go.”
10M!! Here you go🙄
Unsurprisingly, Rosé’s more-adorable-than-sexy rendition of “WAP” had BLINKs across social media screaming—and who could blame them?!
Ya’ll just made a church girl do the wap on Easter 💀💀💀

In less than an hour, the video surpassed 1 million views, and that number is climbing higher every minute. In the replies, Rosé commented, “I keep my promises,” followed by an eye-roll emoji—but judging by her smile in the clip, it seems like she really enjoyed herself.
Rosé’s close friend Ladies Code‘s Ashley was quick to comment “LOVE ITTTTTT” on the video, as did numerous fans. Given that BLACKPINK collaborated with Cardi B on their song “Bet You Wanna” last year, it’s likely only a matter of time before the OG artist gets a kick out of Rosé’s cover herself. In the meantime, BLINKs will definitely be watching this one on repeat.
