  • In a video posted to TikTok, Andrew Lloyd Webber gave us his rendition of Cardi B's WAP.
  • The composer remixed the popular song with the Phantom of the Opera melody.
  • WAP continues to take social media by storm as fans release dance videos and their own versions of the track.

Seems not even Andrew Lloyd Webber can escape the viral sensation that is Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's WAP.

The song, which received a lot of backlash for its risqué video and lyrics, is still making the rounds on social media, with everyone either dancing to it or sharing their rendition of the track.

Legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber decided to get in on the action as well, bringing us: "The Phantom of the WAPera."

In a video shared on TikTok (and later posted on Instagram by fans), Andrew is seen dancing to WAP before sitting down at a piano and playing the classic Phantom of the Opera melody along with the song.

You may be onto something there, Mr Webber. WAP: The Musical, perhaps?
