Megan Thee Stallion has unleashed ‘Good News’ – her debut album.
Led by the Hot 100 chart-topper ‘Savage’ featuring Beyoncé, the set continues to see Meg dive into her knowledge of old school Hip-Hop and deliver slick rhymes across even slicker production.
That Grape Juice has had the LP on repeat since its release. Join us below to find out which five tracks are essential on ‘Good News.’
Raunchy, salacious, intoxicating.
Built around a sample of Adina Howard’s ‘Freak Like Me,’ Meg shows that she is just as brazen and bold as those who came before her.
To top off, the Hot Girl Coach recruited SZA for the song and together they form a fiery combination. One listen to this track and you will see why it’s so delicious.
As much as Megan is at home with old school Hip-Hop, she’s well-equipped to flip the script
Lil Durk and Megan trade bars as if it were a tennis match, when one swings the other returns with a line that is just as complex.
Lined with trap beats and Meg’s sharp tongue, this song is just as freaky as it is dangerous.
Prominently featuring a sample of Jazmine Sullivan’s ‘Holding You Down (Circes),’ this is Meg at her most melodic.
Ever instructional, she spits “One, never let a n*gga see you sweat / Two, never let these n*ggas come between a check /Three, never let a n*gga turn you ‘gainst me”).
What would a proper list be without a Beyoncé song?
Both Houston natives team up for this female empowerment anthem that see’s Bey give husband Jay-Z a run for his money for best rapper in the family.
Needless to say, months after it topped the Billboard Hot 100, this song is still as savage as it is a modern classic.
Girls in the Hood
Meg is a one woman army in this song, taking aim at the rampant misogyny in the rap game.
A flip of the song ‘Boyz-n-the-Hood,’ she takes the song and gives power back to women everywhere.
And if that wasn’t enough, her cocksure attitude only proves that she is larger than life in the rap game and here to stay no matter what anyone thinks.
You tell ’em, Meg!
