Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are set to release a new collaborative single entitled “Bongos”.
The record comes more than three years after the duo performed together on the hit ‘WAP’.
Released in August 2020, “WAP” was a chart hit, but sparked controversy among right-wing commentators and politicians thanks to its sexually explicit lyrics and accompanying music video.
‘Bongos’ will appear on Friday 8 September.
The single follows the release of Cardi’s 2022 single “Hot S***” and stems from recent collaborations with Offset (“Jealousy”), Latto (“Put It on da Floor Again”) and FendiDa Rappa (“Point Ik 2”).
Cardi, real name Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has not released a full studio album since 2018 Violation of privacy.
Earlier this year, the 30-year-old rapper was filmed throwing a microphone at an onlooker who had thrown a drink at her.
The incident, the footage of which went viral in late July, was under review by the Las Vegas Police Department at the time, but officials announced they would not be pressing charges against the artist.
“After a thorough review of this case and after consultation with the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, this case has been closed due to insufficient evidence,” a spokesman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement to FATHER news Agency.
“No charges will be filed in connection with this matter.”
The microphone Cardi threw into the crowd was auctioned off on eBay and eventually sold for nearly $100,000.
Proceeds from the sale, which totaled $99,900, will benefit charities, said Scott Fisher, owner of the audio production company.
Megan Thee Stallion, 28, released her second album Traumazine in August last year.
Last month, rapper Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to shooting Megan, real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, in July 2020.
Megan opened up on the verdict in a written op-ed, saying: “When I look back on the past three years, I consider myself a survivor, because I truly survived the unimaginable.
“[The verdict] was a victory for every woman who has ever been shamed, fired and charged with a violent crime against her.”
