Megan Thee Stallion pulls out of Global Citizen Festival citing ‘unforeseen scheduling conflicts’ – after debuting new song Bongos with Cardi B

Fans of Megan Thee Stallion will not see her perform at the Global Citizen Festival later this month in New York City’s Central Park. 

‘Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, Megan Thee Stallion will no longer be available to perform at the 2023 Global Citizen Festival,’ reps for Megan told Billboard.

The Hot Girl Summer singer, 28, joined the festival as a headliner in July.

Megan – who debuted her new song Bongos featuring Cardi B last week – was set to join the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Anitta and BTS’ Jung Kook as headliners of the 12th annual festival organized by the Global Poverty Project.

The concert is free and takes place on September 23. Attendees can obtain tickets by participating in efforts to end poverty on the Global Citizen app or website.

Conflict: Fans of Megan Thee Stallion will not see her perform at the Global Citizen Festival later this month in New York City 's Central Park
Some fans have speculated that the unforeseen scheduling conflict means she’s appearing at Beyoncé’s Texas show on the same night.

Both Grammy winners are from Houston and they’ve previously worked together on a remix of Megan’s 2020 viral hit Savage.

New York area fans still have an opportunity to see the Big Ole Freak songstress at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on September 12.

The Houston native will be performing her latest song, Bongos, with Cardi B live at the 2023 VMAs.

Olivia Rodrigo, Demi Lovato, LL Cool J, Anitta, Karol G, Doja Cat, Kelsea Ballerini and Fall Out Boy are among the other scheduled performers.

Bongos is the second collaboration between Megan and Cardi B. They previously worked together on the 2020 hit WAP.

WAP spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2020 and the two hip hop stars are hoping their latest collab has the same kind of chart magic.

WAP was certified 7× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
