The summer of 2020 already offers us some dates to mark the calendar in permanent ink: from the 4th to the 8th of August MEO Sudoeste is back in Zambujeira do Mar, where the rhythm of summer is marked by the music of the moment. The next confirmation is one of the most popular representatives of hip hop today: the group Migos acts on August 8, on the MEO Stage of MEO Sudoeste.
Formed by a group of three friends, Quavo, Takeoff and Offset, Migos are one of the most interesting projects of hip hop (and trap) produced around the world. Framed in the best southern tradition of American hip hop and influenced by names like Outkast and Hot Boys, the Atlanta trio has had a meteoric rise since the moment the three friends started making music, sometime in 2009, under the name of Pólo Club.
The name Migos would only appear later, in 2010. In 2012 they released their first mixtape, “No Label”, and a year later they reached the ears of a crowd thanks to the single “Versace”, which would become one of the themes of that year , to the point of being the target of a Drake remix. After “No Label II”, the second mixtape, it was time to debut on disc, with “Yung Rich Nation”, a record very well received by both the public and the critics. That same year, 2015, Migos stood out with the single “Look at My Dab”, an authentic dance phenomenon that quickly went viral worldwide. Despite their success, the trio maintained their ambition and began preparing a trilogy.
The first part of “Culture” came out in 2017 and soon reached the first place on the Billboard 200 chart. The success was not only commercial: the album also earned them a Grammy nomination. “Culture II” saw the light of day in 2018. The album features collaborations from such relevant names as Pharrell Williams, Zaytoven, Murda Beatz, Metro Boomin and even Kanye West. “Supastars” and “Stir Fry” are some of the album’s strongest themes, with the potential to become hits worldwide. The third and last part of the “Culture” trilogy arrives this year 2020 and this will certainly be another reason for the Migos concert at the next MEO Sudoeste on August 8, at the MEO Stage.
