Rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s Year In Music



AILSA CHANG, HOST:

2020 has been a lot. And among the many things it has been, it has also been the year of the Stallion.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, “SAVAGE”)

MEGAN THEE STALLION: (Singing) I’m a savage, yeah – classy, bougie, ratchet, yeah.

CHANG: That is Megan Thee Stallion, the rapper from Houston. Her hit “Savage” attracted a remix featuring Beyonce, and it was followed by her appearance on an even bigger song.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, “WAP”)

MEGAN THEE STALLION: (Rapping) Now get your boots and your coat for this wet, wet, wet. He bought a phone just for pictures of this wet, wet, wet.

CHANG: That is her on the gloriously explicit song “WAP” from Cardi B. Megan Thee Stallion has been pretty hard to miss lately. She started the year on the cover of Rolling Stone, and she was just named GQ’s rapper of the year. And now her debut album is out today. It’s called “Good News.” Pop culture and music writer Taylor Crumpton has had a listen and joins us now to talk about it. Hey, Taylor.

TAYLOR CRUMPTON, BYLINE: Hello. How are you doing?

CHANG: Good. So, I mean, Megan is only 25. She’s made it to the top of the rap scene so quickly. Tell me, like, what sets her apart, do you think? What is it about her that fans have locked into so quickly?

CRUMPTON: Megan Thee Stallion bewitches millions of people through her genuine authenticity and confidence.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, “GIRLS IN THE HOOD”)

MEGAN THEE STALLION: (Rapping) I’m a hot girl. I do hot – spend his income on my outfit.

CRUMPTON: I think from her earliest fans who fell in love with her via YouTube and saw her iconic freestyles
