With “Bad and Boujee” hitting the top of the Billboard Hot 100 this week, Migos scored more promo for the Lil Uzi Vert-assisted hit at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday night (Jan. 8) thanks to Donald Glover’s acceptance speech after his FX show Atlanta won Best TV Series – Musical or Comedy.
“I’d like to thank the Migos — not for being on the show, but for making ‘Bad and Boujee,'” Glover said onstage. Later that night, the actor — also known as rapper Childish Gambino — dubbed the Atlanta rap trio “the Beatles of this generation” backstage.
Migos, who also made a cameo in Atlanta, reciprocated the love in a statement sent to Billboard. “It was an honor to have been on Atlanta as guests and to have our friend Donald Glover thank us in his Golden Globes acceptance speech is real recognizing real.
“We put our city on our backs and we want to thank him and the whole world for making ‘Bad and Boujee’ as successful as it is,” continued the trio, who are currently promoting their forthcoming sophomore album Culture, due Jan. 27.
While Glover and Migos have worked together on the small screen, a joint musical offering could be in the cards. TMZ caught up with the Atlanta star outside the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, California, on Sunday night and asked him if a music collaboration could happen. “I have to,” said Glover. “That’s Zone 6. That’s Atlanta.”
Gambino’s third studio album, Awaken, My Love!, debuted at the top of the R&B Albums chart last month.
