Megan Thee Stallion premieres new song on “Tiny Desk” performance
Catch clips from her NPR takeover.
In a live performance Monday (Oct. 28), Megan Thee Stallion brought acoustic versions of her hits, “Big Ole Freak,” “Money Good,” “Cash Sh*t” and “Hot Girl Summer” to NPR’s “tiny Desk” series. Backed by Brooklyn band Phony Ppl, the Houston Hottie also previewed an unreleased track, which finds her maneuvering through different romantic affairs.
“Don’t ask questions if we just sexin’ / I got situations, no confirmation / Everybody wanna know who Megan dating / That depends on whatever the date is,” she raps. “I got a man but I’m f**kin’ around because I’m young and I can’t be tied down / He got a girl but she got nothin’ on me because we young and we both do the same thing.”
The “Tiny Desk” concert comes hot off the heels of Megan’s debut “Saturday Night Live” performance, where she joined Chance the Rapper for “Handsome.” Besides contributing to Chance’s The Big Day, Stalli also recently hopped on the upcoming film Queen & Slim’s soundtrack, joining VickeeLo in “Ride Or Die.” Her singles this year have ranged from “All Dat,” featuring Moneybagg Yo, to her Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Hot Girl Summer” anthem. The performances wrap up a breakout year for Meg, who also dropped off her Fever album this May.
Although she raps that she “can’t be tied down,” dating rumors between Hot Girl Meg and collaborator Moneybagg Yo have circulated since the summer. Back in September, TMZ reported that Megan gifted Moneybagg a $150,000 his-and-hers rose gold chain, which sported two diamond-encrusted half-heart pendants. The rappers were later seen wearing the matching bling at a joint performance in Atlanta.
Next on the docket for the Hot Girl Summer creator will be penning her own horror movie script, as she revealed she’s been working on in her Vogue “24 Hours” video.
“Everyone knows I f**kin’ love horror movies,” she said in the clip. “I like movies that make you semi fall in love with the villain, so you have sympathy for him. You’re not gonna want the villain to die, maybe he won’t die. ‘Cause I feel like every good story—you can’t just necessarily kill off the villain. That’s why the Batman never killed Joker. How the f**k would you have Batman with no Joker?”
