Cardi B, in collaboration with Casamigos, hosted an unforgettable VMA after-party in the heart of New York City. The celebration at Somewhere Nowhere honored her spectacular performance at the awards show and the release of her latest hit, “Bongos,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion.
Cardi B was also nominated for Best Hip-Hop Song earlier in the evening for her chart-topping track “Tomorrow 2,” alongside GloRilla. The after-party was graced by a constellation of celebrities, including Offset, Lil Nas X, Tiffany Haddish, Mary J Blige, Victoria Monet, Leon Bridges, Karrueche, Saucy Santana, Christian Siriano, Swae Lee, Doechii, French Montana, Quinta Brunson, and many more.
Throughout the night, guests reveled in the electrifying ambiance, dancing to great music and savoring delicious drinks. Casamigos, the official spirits sponsor, crafted two exclusive cocktails for the star-studded soirée: the Bongos B: A refreshing Watermelon Basil Margarita and Hot Like Nevada: A fiery Spicy Jalapeno Margarita.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have officially delivered the first performance of “Bongos.” Hitting the VMAs, Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B took the stage to a tropical background with muscular men actually playing bongos. The dancers flanked the two, making the VMA moment full of energy.
The dynamic duo previously received significant recognition at the 2021 “VMAs” when their iconic hit single, “WAP,” earned them five nominations, including “Song of the Summer,” “Video of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” “Best Collaboration,” and “Best Hip Hop.” “WAP” made history as the first female rap collaboration to debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, spent four weeks at the top spot, and was certified 8x platinum in the U.S.
