Joe Budden Says Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion Don’t Sound Original on New Song
On the Joe Budden Podcast‘s “The Docket” (Episode 656), host Joe Budden offered his critique on Cardi B and Megan Stallion‘s collaborative new single, “Bongos.” The two rap stars dropped their song on Friday (Sept. 8) and it’s been receiving great reviews from fans on social media.
On the “The Docket” episode, Joe said the rap duo’s new single doesn’t have “lasting power.”
“The hook is not hookin’ for me. There’s nothin’ in it to make it stay, one,” he explained at the one-hour and 36 minute-mark below. “And two…this commercialized ratchet has passed, it’s ghetto ratchet time. And neither one of them are ghetto ratchet on this song.”
“We need a ‘Bodak Yellow’ now,” he continued. “This sounds like two women who can’t make a song.”
In short, Joe Budden doesn’t think “Bongos” has staying power for the radio or music charts.
