“Bongos” also is the first song Megan has released since she said that she would be dropping new music. “Fans can expect new music when I’m in a better place,” she told InStyle back in May. She was referencing to the PTSD she experienced due to her legal conflict with Tory Lanez. “The music and entertainment industry can be a grind. So, it’s important to take time off and avoid burning out,” she continued. “Life is all about balance.”

Back in July, she gave fans an update about her music process when she uploaded a video of herself when she was in the studio. “I’m back in that mode. It’s that time,” she wrote on the video post.
