Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are back with a scorching summer sensation in their latest collaboration, “Bongos.” Following the explosive success of “WAP” in 2020, the dynamic duo has returned with a vacation-themed music video that sizzles with Latin-infused beats.
Set against a tropical beach paradise backdrop, Cardi and Megan dazzle in extravagant accessories and custom outfits. With a pulsating bassline as their canvas, they deliver infectious verses, and their voices harmonize seamlessly in the unforgettable chorus, “I’m a throw it back like it’s Thursday / I got cake, I’m lit, it’s my birthday.”
For Megan, “Bongos” marks her return to the music scene since her 2022 sophomore album, “Traumazine,” which soared to No. 4 on the Billboard 200. Her journey to this point includes a highly publicized 2020 incident where she was shot in the foot, leading to rapper Tory Lanez’s 10-year prison sentence.
Cardi B, known for chart-topping success, playfully confounds expectations with the single’s cover art, intentionally reminiscent of “WAP.” However, it’s a fresh and unique musical direction.
While Cardi’s last full-length album was “Invasion of Privacy” in 2018, she recently hinted at a new solo musical venture in an interview with Vogue Mexico. “Bongos” reaffirms their unstoppable synergy, promising more electrifying music from these two trailblazing artists.
