Megan's verse is equally punchy. “A, rock you like a baby, but you know I'm 'bout to keep you up / Welcome to my channel, and today I'm 'bout to teach you something' / I can make you pop, legs up like a cancan / Wake the neighbors up, make it sound like the band playing',” raps Megan.
Fans were quick to express their excitement over the collaboration, taking to Twitter to celebrate the track.

In a world where bars held their doors wide open, strangers clustered in crowds, and brushing hands with someone on the street didn’t induce an instant flinch, Megan Thee Stallion appeared as a shining beacon.
Her Instagram live streams allow her to speak on pertinent issues such as rapper Tory Lane’s shooting and the recent passing of both her parents. The rapper has thus far balanced school with writing and recording multiple mixtapes and albums, and touring with massive industry names like Future and Meek Mill.
She became an industry sweetheart and an icon for sexually empowered women as she dared to match the hypersexual energy so often abused by the men of the Billboard Hot 100. Megan took over the scene with catchy dances, memes, and other TikTok content as the platform rocketed her songs “Cash Shit” and “Freak Nasty” to vitality.

Most recently, pp cocaine, a 19-year-old best known for her raunchy lyricism and sugary, sour tagline of “trapbunnieBUBBLES,” scored a deal with Columbia Records following her overnight success on the platform.
Trending songs on TikTok cast a wide and all-consuming shadow over traditional promotional advertisements through Snapchat filters, Instagram ads, or fan-targeted emails. “Savage” along with “Captain Hook” sparked viral dance routines and led users around the world to throw it back for a chance at a sliver of clout.
In a summer shaken by coronavirus, a critical upcoming election, and general uncertainty of what the future could bring, Megan Thee Stallion reminded us that we are still hot girls. To close down this COVID-summer, Megan and Cardi B brought the heat with “WAP,” an ode to soaking genitalia everywhere that secured its number one spot on the Billboard charts and broke records with 93 million streams in its debut week.
They do rituals, chants and make pacts with the devil, wrongly believe it brings them success, when behind the scenes their lives have been plagued with horrible things and their careers have been in free fall. The New Culture website stated Megan's former best friend Kelsey slammed her as not having a soul, “In one of the Instagram posts, she replied to a Meg fan who went on about how she wanted to be like the rapper.
The ironic thing is that whole Hollywood cult are going to have a massive, catastrophic fall from grace that is going to become an enormous global scandal. They've been committing terrible human rights abuses and financial crimes behind closed doors.
It is claimed that their beef started when the Savage hit maker alleged that Tory Lane shot her around mid this year. Meg has since dissed Kelsey and Tory through her latest album Good News.
The track did not tickle Nicole’s fancy, and she took to social media saying all sorts of ugly things about TheeStallion. Megan Thee Stallion posted a video to her Instagram Story of a bird that flew into her kitchen.
Megan Thee Stallion may have made a new best friend in quarantine after a bird flew into her kitchen. Yesterday, she posted videos on her Instagram Story recording the tiny bird that found itself next to her stove.
Megan, and who can be presumed to be her bodyguard Justin, can be heard talking to each other and the bird in the background. Megan and Justin can be heard in the background trying to figure out how the bird got in, but it stares her in the face for a few seconds with its mouth open before turning its attention to something else.
It sounds like Justin moves to open the window but by then, Megan and the birds might have become fast friends. She gave the bird a name while sticking with social distancing protocol.

The star shot to celebrity status with a series of mega hits, including her 2018 project Tina Snow and songs like “Big Ole Freak” and “Cash S**t” (via Billboard), not to mention her 2020 viral hit “Savage.” In fact, she's come a pretty long way in her journey to the top of the rapping game.
However, she added, “But I don't feel like we ever really had a female rapper come from Houston or Texas and shut s**t down.” Megan's mother, Holly Thomas, was a rapper in the late '90s and early 2000s, who used the stage name Holly-Wood.
Apparently, Megan spent her early years soaking up Houston's rap industry and culture in the studio with her mom. While Megan did learn a lot from her mom, she certainly forged her own path in the rap world.
Once Megan could see her father and her mother's relationship, she developed a new understanding of love. Seems that the influence Megan's father had on her taught her a lot about what a positive, healthy relationship really looks like.
After growing up in the studio listening to her mother's raps, Megan Thee Stallion started writing her own bars at just 14 years old. Megan spoke to XXL about how she started writing while she was in the studio with her mom.
Even though Megan started at 14, it wasn't until she was 18 that she plucked up the courage to share her hidden skills with her mom. It's clear that Megan Thee Stallion loved rapping as a teen, thanks to her mom's influence and connections.
She explained to Rolling Stone, “I was kind of shy about telling people that I could rap for the longest.” In another Rolling Stone interview, Megan discussed her early shyness in more detail.
She recalled one early incident when an older man said to her, “Damn, you are a stallion.” Megan immediately told him to back off, saying, “Stop talking to me before you go to jail,” as she was just 15 at the time.
We absolutely love that Megan reclaimed a nickname given to her by men at a young age and is using it to show everyone her incredible sense of self-worth! While Megan Thee Stallion was exposed to rap culture from a very early age thanks to her mother, she didn't always plan on making it her career.
It may surprise many fans to learn that the rapper once thought of pursuing a career in plastic surgery! She explained to XXL, “I used to watch Dr. 90210, and I would see the ladies would get up after they got their boobs done, or their nose job, and they'll be all happy and s**t.” Clearly, Megan was passionate about making women feel and look their best.
However, her fear of blood made her dreams of becoming a plastic surgeon impossible. Luckily, Megan's killer bars can make women feel pretty good about themselves too.
When Megan Thee Stallion finally plucked up the courage to drop some bars for her mom, she was 18 and had been rapping in secret for four years (via XXL). She told Rolling Stone how she began recording cyphers and freestyles around the Texas Southern University campus, where she was studying health administration.
When she started rapping, Megan's famously suggestive lyrics caused her mom some concern. Megan Thee Stallion rose to fame pretty quickly once she started sharing her music.
Like a true 21st century star, Megan used social media to find her following of hotties, ” as she calls them. She garnered a following by posting videos on Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.
As MTV News explained, Megan dominated the cypher with her confident delivery, and the video soon went viral. The next video to dominate the internet was Megan's Stall Freestyle, ” which grabbed attention worldwide after she uploaded it in 2017.
The next viral moment for Megan came with her song “Big Ole Freak.” It's pretty clear that social media has helped Megan on her climb to the top.
Before she became a household name, Megan Thee Stallion tried to get her big break on a reality TV series. Watching Megan's audition, it's hard to ignore the rapper's incredible confidence and charisma.
If MeganTheeStallion's record-breaking musical success wasn't enough to earn your respect, the rapper has another impressive claim to fame in the industry. In 2018, Megan became the first female rapper to ever sign with the label 300 Entertainment since it began in 2012.
The record label is responsible for stars like Young Thug and Minos. At the time, Megan was pretty nervous, as she explained to Rolling Stone.
The team welcomed her with balloons and a bottle of Hennessy, and she signed the contract the same day. In an Instagram video of the momentous day (via Rolling Stone), Megan and her mom could be seen celebrating the life-changing contract that would kick start her rise to international fame.
From inspiring Megan to become a rapper at a young age to taking on the role of her manager when she became a professional artist, Holly Thomas was clearly an immensely important figure to her daughter. In 2019, Megan's mother tragically passed away after battling brain cancer.
At the time, Megan posted a touching tribute to her mother, which has since been deleted, writing, “We were together Every day, holly was my biggest cheerleader and toughest critic. Later that year, Megan took to Twitter to explain the impact her mother's death had on her and why she had continued to work so tirelessly.
Speaking to i-D in 2019, Megan explained that she would never tear down another female rapper to get to the top. In July 2020, Megan Thee Stallion was involved in a terrifying incident, one that she called the “worst experience of my life” on Instagram Live, as reported by USA Today.
Megan explained that the traumatic event could have been a lot more serious if the bullets had hit any bones or tendons. One thing that immediately strikes you about Megan Thee Stallion is her boldness and her seemingly inherent, unshakable strength.
However, in a 2020 interview with GQ, the star confessed that she sometimes feels pressured to present strength when she really needs a little support. Sounds like the horrific incident led to some important personal growth for the rapper.
In fact, the song secured 93 million streams when it debuted, shooting it straight to the No. As Megan told the Los Angeles Times, she received a fair amount of backlash after releasing the explicit and suggestive song.
She also revealed that she'd been playing a lot of Mortal Kombat and other fighting games. Not only did alone time teach her more about herself, but it also gave Megan Thee Stallion the chance to focus on her work.
As she explained to the Los Angeles Times, her lockdown was largely spent writing the songs that eventually went onto her 2020 album. Makes sense that the album ended up being called Good News.
The album was released in November 2020, and based on its chart success, it seems as though it did succeed in bringing joy to millions of fans. Megan Thee Stallion teamed up with two famous artists for a 2021 remix that sent shock waves through the pop world.
The song was similar to Grande's original version, but it featured additional lyrics from Dora Cat and Megan. In Megan's section, she brought her usual raunchy and unapologetic self to the table.
