Cardi B’s Instagram caption indicates the new tune is a single of hers with Megan as the featured collaborator, which may augur for a long-promised new album. Megan already released a new project, “Suga,” this year, which resulted in one already huge collaboration for her in 2020, “Savage Remix,” with Beyonce as her guest.
For Megan Thee Stallion, it’s a chance to reenter the news cycle in a more uplifting way after posting a tearful video to Instagram Live just five days ago in which she described “the worst experience of my life.” She described being shot in both feet and needing surgery to remove the bullets after attending a Hollywood party July 15 with Tory Lanez.
Cardi B’s debut album, “Invasion of Privacy,” came out in June 2018 and has been certified triple-platinum. Subsequent non-album singles included “Please Me,” a collaboration with Bruno Mars that went to No. 1 on the hip-hop/R&B and rap charts last year. She also starred in Netflix’s series “Rhythm + Flow.”
