21 Nov Megan Thee Stallion Good News Album Interview With Apple
Megan Thee Stallion is the barrier of “Good News” as she delivers it all through music.
Hot girl Meg has had a trying 2020 like the rest of the world. It seems like 2020 incidents were either extremely good or extremely horrible.
Megan Thee Stallion decided to set her own destiny with her recently released album ” Good News”.
Meg included plenty of girl power in the album visuals with features from Taraji P Henson, Cardi B, Kylie Jenner, and Beyonce.
She told Apple that working with Beyonce was like a highlight for her.
“I was like, “Beyonce? Beyonce.” Like I couldn’t believe it, my eyes got so big. Because I had a feeling she was gonna do it, and they told me she wanted to do it, and I was like, shut up, like, Beyonce wanna get on my song? Like, and that is something that I always say. Like every time somebody will ask me who’s your dream collab? Who do you wanna collab with? I’m like, Beyonce, Beyonce, Beyonce. So when it finally happened I called my grandma I was crying. She was like, “What’s wrong?” I said, “I got a song with Beyonce.” … That was one of my favourite moments of 2020”
Meg’s year so far was full of protecting Black women and female liberation.
Speaking out on protecting Black Women Megan said, “It shouldn’t have triggered anybody. It should be like, “Yeah, you’re right. You do need to protect our Black women.” Like, I wasn’t saying that to start a fight or to cause conflict, and that shouldn’t have been a thing that made people raise their eyebrows in a negative way. Like, particularly Black women, I said what I said.”
The artist found liberation through the collab with Cardi for “WAP”. “Like, you could really own your own sexuality because a lot of the times, I feel like men think that sex is just about them, or that sex is just for them. This is my vagina, like, I could sing about it if I want to … We didn’t know that this song was gonna do none of this. Like, we didn’t know that it was gonna piss people off. We didn’t know the republicans was gonna be pissed off.”
When it came to Meg’s connection with Cardi she said, “we just hung out for like a few days and then she text me she’s like, “I got this song, and I really want you to get on it.” And she’s like, “I feel like it’s so you.” And I’m like, “Okay, girl, let me hear it. So she texts it to me and I immediately called right back like, “I’m gonna send you the verse tomorrow.” Like, I had a studio in my house and I literally went in the living room, cut it, and sent it right back. And it was just, it was too far. Like, she didn’t even know that I was gonna get on the song and do two verses, like, so, I was like, “No Cardi, like, this really has to be a song, song. Like, I’m not gonna disappoint you, I promise.” So, yeah, that’s how that went and like, and we just kept jamming it until it actually came off. Like we were both really nervous about like, dropping the cover art. Like, she’s a person who was super creative, and she’s super particular. Like, she knows exactly what she wanna do, how she wanted it to look. So I was just like, “Whatever you wanna do girl, we could do that.” And, um, but we didn’t know that this would be the reaction. I- it was such a big, huge reaction too, like, to be able to do that, have everybody attention like that during this crazy times? It was like, damn, we really did the damn thing.”
The best part of this “Good News” is throughout Megan Thee Stallion’s trying 2020 she had two Hot 100 No. 1 records on Billboard (“Savage and Cardi B’s “WAP”).
