Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion drops “Bongos”


Its another Friday release day, with several artistes looking to drop or having dropped new songs on various streaming platforms today.

Rapper Cardi B dropped her long-awaited track “Bongos”, featuring Meg Thee Stallion. The track has apparently been in the works for some time, with Cardi doing heavy promotion ahead of the song’s release.

In an interview with Hot 97 earlier this week, Cardi said that the song needed someone, and she chose Meg, “It’s just one of those records where you need somebody…she always sends verses and I chop it up and it just goes really well. She’s my work wife.

The video has so far amassed 2 million views on YouTube so far, with critics calling the song “WAP part 2”, with a Latin twist.

According to Variety, the song is Megan’s first release since her 2022 sophomore effort “Traumazine,” which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and boasted radio hits “Sweetest Pie” with Dua Lipa and “Pressurelicious” featuring Future.

The very colourful video showcases both rappers provocatively clad in tantalising swimwear, gyrating by the pool, beach, and even a freezer.

Fans are crazy about the visual aspects and fashion choices for the video, and overall, social media users seem to love the collab.

According to Rolling Stone, this is another entry in her back-to-back heater team-ups this year. The rapper scored a summer hit with Latto on “Put It On Da Floor Again” and joined FendiDa Rappa on “Point Me 2.” In July, she appeared on her husband Offset’s one-off single “Jealousy.”

Is this a sign that an album is coming soon? Cardi B and Meg fans can only hope.
