From Lizzo to Beyoncé, it’s been another hot summer of girls in pop. Now Megan Thee Stallion joins the twerktastic party with Traumazine, her surprise second album, which she announced last Thursday just hours before it was released on Friday morning.
Here are the six hottest tracks of 2020 from the Grammy-winning rapper’s follow-up to Good News.
There’s a brazen swagger that comes with being a rapper of any gender, but it’s heartening to hear a woman unwilling to play nice in a male-dominated arena. “I’m done being humble/Because I know I’m that bitch,” Megan spits, cutting through a spacey groove with a razor-sharp performance.
When you set the bar for female rap collaborations as high as Megan did with Cardi B on her 2020 hit “WAP,” it’s hard to follow. But this latto joint is a winner, because these two money-hungry MCs want to be paid at least as well as their male counterparts: “I’m not moving without this money/What’s the budget?”
“I don’t care if these bitches don’t like me/because I’m pretty as a f—k,” says Megan, with a perfectly thrown barrette to start this hater-bashing, narcissistic jam reminiscent of a more lascivious Lizzo.
Megan is at its raunchiest in this stripper pole banger that’s as raw as it gets. “I want you to track down that cat… Get up in that P—y,” she orders her husband for attention.
She may be a “bad bitch,” but Megan admits she still has her “bad days” when the psychic struggle is real: “You guys don’t even know how I feel/I don’t even know how I do Deal/Today I really hate everyone/And that’s just me who’s real.” word.
Megan Thee Stallion might not make you think of romantic slow jams, but this Jhené Aiko-backed joint shows that even bad girls need your commitment to “throw it back” on a regular basis.
