Three-plus years since they set the internet ablaze with “WAP,” Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B turn up the heat once more courtesy of their “Bongos” collaboration.
Reflecting over-the-top opulence, the rappers’ latest music video follows the superstar artists as they spit verses from a mind-bending living room setting to the beach while flanked by dancers draped in a variety of colors. “This pussy tight like a nun/Better chew it up like it’s gum/Then wipe your mouth when you done,” dictates Cardi B, followed by Megan who replies “This ass sit like a stallion, all these wannabes my lil’ ponies/These hoes camped out in the comments, always talkin’ like they know me,” before declaring, “Eat whoever in my way, Ms. Pacman.”
Earlier this week, Cardi B took to her social media accounts with the title, single artwork, and release date for “Bongos,” and in a recent interview with Hot 97, the rapper revealed that the song had been in the works for a while.
“This song has been part of a plan for a minute now,” explained the rapper star born ? “It’s just one of those records where you need somebody. And even on those parts, where she’s at, I did verses to it, but then it just feels like a long ass song.” “She always sends verses and I chop it up and it just goes really well. She’s my work wife.”
“Bongos” marks Megan’s first release in more than a year after she shared her second studio LP before announcing in October that she’d be stepping away from her relentless schedule after her Saturday Night Live gig. “Hotties I’m really sorry but after SNL I really gotta take a break I’m so tired, physically and emotionally,” she wrote on Twitter at the time.
As for Cardi B, “Bongos” is the latest in an ever-growing list of back-to-back singles after her “Put It On Da Floor Again” summer hit with Latto, “Point Me 2” with FendiDa Rappa, and her cameo performance on her husband Offset’s one-off single “Jealousy.”
