Migos Recruit Nicki Minaj and Cardi B For New Track ‘MotorSport’
Mon, 30 Oct 2017 09:59:05
Migos previewed their upcoming album, Culture II, sharing a hard hitting first single "MotorSport", which features guest verses by Nicki Minaj and Cardi B over production by Murda Beatz and CuBeatz. The raunchy track drops on the last weekend of the month, despite Offset having teased an October 2017 release date for the full album. No further details of the official release date have come to light.
"MotorSport" is the first official collaboration between Minaj and Cardi B, who burst onto the scene this summer with her chart-topper "Bodak Yellow". It's been a good fall for the former stripper turned rapper, who became the first solo female hip hop act to top the Billboard 100 chart since Lauryn Hill and "Doo Wop (That Thing)" back in 1998. The song then earned Single of the Year at the 2017 BET Awards, and just this last weekend, she got engaged to Migos' Offset, who proposed to her onstage at Power 99's Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia, with an 8-carat diamond on hand to help his cause.
Migos meanwhile, hope to continue the success of Culture, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart back in January of 2017. Culture was only the Georgia trio's second LP, but was propelled to the top of the charts by singles like "Bad and Boujee" and "T-Shirt", and was certified platinum with over one million sales in July of this year. Migos is on tour currently, with six stops planned for the rest of the calendar year, including shows in Las Vegas and Chicago.
"MotorSport" is available for streaming across multiple platforms and for download on the Migos website.
