Cardi B has hinted that her much-awaited second album may not be released around her birthday on October 11, or even in October at all. In a recent conversation with DJ Whoo Kid, she stated, “I don’t want no sh*t related to work in October.”
However, this doesn’t interfere with her plan to release “Bongos” with Megan Thee Stallion on September 8. This collaboration is significant as it marks three years since their global hit “WAP.” While fans are eagerly awaiting the release, far-right conservatives have expressed their disapproval.
During an episode of DJ Whoo Kid’s podcast, Whoo’s House, Cardi B shared her curiosity about how fans will react to “Bongos” as they might be expecting something similar to “WAP.” She clarified that while the song does touch upon some explicit themes, it is not as graphic as “WAP.”
Cardi B also revealed that the music video for “Bongos” will be “beautiful,” reflecting the hard work and effort she and Megan Thee Stallion have put into it. However, she was quick to dismiss any comparisons to “WAP,” stating that despite the single cover art giving off a “WAP” vibe, the song is different.
On Thursday afternoon, Cardi B shared a video of herself twerking on a couch on her social media platforms. She announced that she would be premiering the trailer for “Bongos” at 6 p.m. EST and later at 11:30 p.m. EST, she would be live on YouTube to premiere “Bongos.” She invited her fans to join her on YouTube live, hinting at an exciting discussion.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are both artists under Warner Music. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
