Cardi B has teamed up with Megan Thee Stallion for a new song, ‘Bongos’. Their first collaborative single since 2020’s ‘WAP’, the track arrives with a video directed by Tanu Muino. Check it out below.
Cardi B discussed ‘Bongos’ in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid on his Whoo’s House SiriusXM show, saying, “I wonder how people are gonna react to this vibe because they’re really like expecting ‘WAP,’ like, ‘oh, here they go again talking this and that… We are talking a little, you know, about some pussy, but not like ‘WAP’-type of stuff.”
“The part where Megan is kind of at in the song, because we chopped the song a lot, like the part where like she’s at, it be like ‘Bong, bong, bong’, and I was planning for that to be the hook, but it just sounded so incomplete,” she explained. “Then, we just like, ‘This song needs a feature,’ so it’s like a lot of people wanted it to go the Spanish route with it and I’m like, ‘I could see that.’ I could see that, definitely. Of course, like you could feel it, but I was like, ‘I feel like I hear Megan on this.’ It’s like, ‘Really? You don’t think that It’s more like of the Latin part,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, but I hear her on this. Like, I know it. I know I could hear her on this.'”
Of working with Megan Thee Stallion, she added: “It feels good [to get back into the game]… it makes me feel good that she trusts me. I’mma give my all. Not only am I doing this for myself, [but] ‘I want you to trust me.’ We trust each other.”
‘Bongos’ follows Cardi B’s 2022 single ‘Hot Shit’. Her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, was released in 2018.
