The meteoric ascension of Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” continues! Migos took the track — from their forthcoming album, Culture — to ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a network television victory lap. With no DJ behind them and no direct crowd in front of them, this Kimmel performance really isolates the group’s energy and shows the versatility of their trade-off rhymes and rapid-fire flows.
While the track had been gaining momentum toward the latter part of 2016, Donald Glover’s reference to it during his Golden Globes acceptance speech propelled the track to over a 250 percent increase in streams, bringing it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Migos’ Culture is out January 27.
