Although Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion teased their upcoming collab single “Bongos” with a pair of racy album covers, fans can expect something totally different from the new joint offering.
The rap stars first unveiled the sizzling images on social media over the weekend. Both Cardi and Megan wear brightly colored, barely-there bodysuits on the covers. The photos hint at another raunchy collab akin to their 2020 offering “WAP.”
However, Cardi B says she and Megan the Stallion “tricked” fans with the images, which don’t actually correlate to the song’s content. The New York City native let a few details slip during an Instagram Live session Wednesday night (September 6).
“Let me tell you something,” Cardi B began. “Me and [Megan Thee Stallion], we tricked y’all. We tricked you muthafuckas. These covers we tricked you b##ches.”
Cardi continued, explaining that they wanted to deceive fans into thinking another “WAP”-like single was coming with the steamy photos, but she and Megan will actually deliver something drastically different in content.
“You wanna know how we tricked ya?” she continued. “Because this is not the theme of the song or the video. We want y’all to believe that it’s giving something that it’s not [laughs].”
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, becoming the first female rap collaboration to do so.
