Thanks to everyone who showed “Bodak Yellow” such a lot of support and buy it even so long after the premiere. That’s why it became a diamond, because you still listen to it. “WAP” is also rocking – 5x platinum in 7 months and with almost no radio play, because of how vulgar this single is, makes me really happy because I released this song at a time when I doubted myself the most . Beloved, I am shocked. ” – she wrote and made available archival recordings from the recording studio during the creation of “Bodak Yellow”.
