Watch Migos Perform “Bad and Boujee” in Nigeria
As if further confirmation was needed that the Migos have the biggest song of their career with "Bad and Boujee," here's a video of the group performing it in Nigeria, the crowd going absolutely insane as they rap along in unison. At the top of the month, the song became the highest charting single for the group, reaching No. 54 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's now at No. 26 after peaking at No. 24 last week.
The positive momentum comes just as the trio prepares to drop their Culture album, Quavo offered a preview of what's to come just last week. Whereas past clips have shown Quavo in the backseat listening to the album or Offset in the studio doing the same, the new teaser looks to be from a music video or promo piece. Quavo captioned the video “C O M I N G S O O N…” though no specific timeline is mentioned.
"Bad and Boujee," which is likely to be the lead single off the album, landed on XXL's 50 best hip-hop songs of 2016 list. The video, featuring Lil Uzi Vert, a star on the rise in his own right, dropped near Halloween.
It's somewhat surprising that "Bad and Boujee" hasn't received a RIAA certification yet, but that seems all but inevitable. The song would join "Fight Night" and "Versace" as gold status Migos tracks.
