Andrew Lloyd Webber blesses us with 'Phantom of the WAPera' and no one was ready

The world is obsessed with Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s WAP and Andrew Lloyd Webber has proven he’s no different.

The iconic composer paid homage to the rappers’ anthem, giving it a theatre makeover and creating ‘Phantom of the WAPera.’

Sharing a video on TikTok, the 72-year-old could be seen vibing to the ‘I don’t cook, I don’t clean’ part of the song, before doing what he does best and playing the titular piece from the 1986 musical over Cardi and Megan’s hit.

Safe to say the end result is a little unnerving, but we’re into it.

‘Phantom of the WAPera ft. the man himself – TeamALW,’ the caption read.

Fans are obsessed, with one comment, liked by Andrew, reading: ‘This isn’t real. I’m amazed. This is beautiful.’

‘Yea ima need a full version please chief,’ another added, while one more said: ‘The hero we needed AND the hero we deserved.’

Elsewhere, the stage legend has signed up for an experimental coronavirus trial in the hopes of speeding up the reopening of theatres.

Writing to his 209,000 Twitter followers, the 72-year-old confirmed: ‘I am excited that tomorrow I am going to be vaccinated for the Oxford Covid 19 trial.

‘I’ll do anything to prove that theatres can re-open safely.’

Meanwhile, Cardi and Megan have seen huge success with their hit WAP, earning a Billboard number one and prompting an iconic dance challenge.

In fact, the likes of Jason Derulo and his girlfriend Jena Frumes, James Charles and Addison Rae have taken part in the WAP challenge, putting us all to shame with the dance that requires a huge amount of skill.

First discovering the song’s success just after she’d woken up, Cardi was seen celebrating in an iconic video in her pyjamas.

Rocking her silk bonnet and pajamas, Cardi wrote: ‘Number f**kin one !!!!!NUMBER 1 !!!My 4th number 1 on billboard hot 100….I’m just so thankful I want to hug the LORD !!

‘Thank you soo much @theestallion .I don’t even know how to thank you ,I wish I can give you a big ass hug !!! Thank you to my fans Megan fans,Thank you the world for listening .

‘Im just soooo thankful I can’t even type it .Imma get like a bad b***h and tell ya later.Love ya WAAAAAAAPP.’
