Joe Budden thinks Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s new single is a 2-pack of ass, and nothing in comparison with their final collab… arguing it is lacking a key ingredient, or a person slightly.
The rapper shared his ideas on CB and MTS’s newest music, “Bongos,” in his newest episode of “The Joe Budden Podcast” — and, per standard, he was unfiltered in breaking it down. As he explains, he simply would not really feel “Bongos” has fairly the pizzazz that their final single did.
After all, he is speaking about “WAP” … which charted properly when it launched, and which kinda captured the zeitgeist on the time. This time round although, JB says the magic is gone.
The rationale he thinks “Bongos” will not have as a lot endurance is as a result of Pardison Fontaine — aka, Pardi — wasn’t within the combine this time round as a collaborator. In case you did not know, Pardi had writing credit on “WAP” … along with different Cardi and Meg songs.
After all, he additionally dated Meg for a very good whereas final 12 months … that’s, till they cut up up.
There’s nonetheless no official phrase on why she and Pardi parted, however it’s clear she’s moved on with different males — having been snapped out in public with completely different high-profile dudes of late.
That is cool and all, however in response to Joe … Pardi would possibly simply be the key ingredient to each Cardi and Meg’s huge hits — and since they each seem to have ditched him on this team-up, he feels just like the man’s absence is noticeable. Naturally, Joe places that in his personal distinctive means.
Time will inform how “Bongos” does performance-wise … it was actually simply launched yesterday, to numerous fanfare. One notable factor about it that is getting buzz is the manufacturing value — a reported $2 million price range simply to cook dinner it up. Additionally, they’re gonna carry out it on the VMAs.
BTW, “Bongos” is the beginning of Cardi’s rollout for her long-awaited 2nd album. Primarily based on how Joe’s already reacting to 1 monitor, it seemingly would not bode properly for the remainder of the mission.
