Ready for good news? Megan Thee Stallion’s debut studio album is out now!
The rapper released a 17-track album, Good news, on Friday, which features his remix of “Savage” with Beyoncé, as well as new collaborations with DaBaby, SZA, City Girls and more.
Megan spoke to ET last week about the exciting milestone of releasing her first studio album, as well as the music video for her new single, “Body,” after topping the charts with hits like “Savage” and her collaboration with Cardi B. , “WAP”, during the last year.
“If you know me and you kept up with the things I said, I was always very afraid to launch a project called ‘album’, because that is a big commitment,” admitted the rapper. “It’s like, a husband and I just want to go on a date and have fun, these are mixtapes, these are projects, EPs. It felt like a married couple saying, ‘This is an album.
“For me to really commit and call something an album, I feel very mature. I feel like we’ve had a lot of growth over the last year. I titled it. Good news, because yeah, we’ve had a really crazy year and we feel like we got bad news one after another. I felt that Megan Thee Stallion needed to deliver good news. “
The album’s title track, “Shots Fired,” also features Megan’s official lyrical applause for Tory Lanez, following her claims that he shot her in the feet after a party in July.
“Who are you shooting at, silly bitch? / Watching me triumph from your knees, sucking dicks / I know you want the attention of the niggas I get / I’m a steak, you’re a side dish / shrimp, stay in your place,” he raps in the song.
In October, Tory was charged with assaulting Megan during the alleged Hollywood Hills shooting incident in July. Tory was charged with a felony assault with a semi-automatic firearm, a felony carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and for personal use of a firearm.
Megan also received a protective order against Tory in October. The “WAP” rapper has spoken out about the situation, stating multiple times that Tory shot him, with bullet fragments allegedly hitting his feet, requiring emergency surgery.
Tory responded to the charges by denying the allegations in a tweet that read, “The truth will come out,” and last week, she officially pleaded not guilty in the assault case.
Good news It also dropped just before Megan’s performance at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday, where she will be showing one of her new tracks. After performing at last year’s awards, the rapper is also one of the most nominated artists of the night, with five AMA nominations, the most of any female artist.
“It always amazes me and I’m always excited and happy,” she said of the possibility of performing on the awards stage. “I always want to impress my beauties. I always want them to feel like they went on a trip with me, and that they are going on a trip with me. So I’m very excited to be where I am now, because for everyone who has been watching up to this point, they know how hard I worked and how passionate I am about music and the fact that we made it this far.
