Migos has dominated on the pop and rap charts, as well as streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, with songs like 'Bad and Boujee,' 'MotorSport,' 'Stir Fry' and 'Walk It Talk It.'  Their albums, last year’s Culture and this year’s Culture II, have reached platinum status and each hit the no 1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

The Grammy-nominated Atlanta group will launch a tour with Drake next month.
