The pair joined forces on the Grammys stage during Megan’s performance. She began her segment of the ceremony by performing her ‘Good News’ track ‘Body’, telling the audience: “This is my first time at the Grammys but it’s not my first time entertaining you.”
The cameras later cut to Cardi where she performed a snippet of here latest single ‘Up’, before Megan rejoined her for ‘WAP’. Part of the performance saw the pair rapping and dancing from a giant bed.
