I like Miss Megan a lot. She’s fun, she’s ultra talented, extremely beautiful, and great at Twitter. Probably the best of the new crop of girl rappers, and definitely the best at managing her public persona, Megan Thee Stallion is thee one I love hearing more than most ‘new’ artists. The original “Savage” was rather barebones, and a leftover of the 2010s trend to make songs into little two minute bops and move on – still a fun song, still a fun Megan bop, but definitely lacking.
Queeeeen Bee. Savage was a song designed to be remixed for maximum extension of the song’s relevance, so it’s not surprising that Megan was able to pull out the big guns and go hard with her new bestie. Her opening line aside – Jay-Z referencing Tik Tok/OnlyFans was just terrible lmao – Beyoncé brought the energy to the song that was desperately needed, giving Megan someone to play off while letting Beyoncé’s do her deep whisper whenever she’s not deciding to go further and further into her year-long rap career. Up against Doja + Nicko’s “Say So” remix for the #1 spot in America, it’ll definitely be a close race. But I think this great collab will come out on top. Lord, I hope we get an album from her this year. Please, God, just give me this one thing.
