After debuting an unreleased song and performing acoustic versions of “Hot Girl Summer” and “Cash Sh*t” on NPR’s “Tiny Desk,” Megan Thee Stallion confirmed she’ll be dropping her debut album in 2020 and welcoming a new alter ego.
“My next project I will be introducing a new lady. Her name is Suga. She’s besties with Tina Snow,” Megan said during the NPR interview. “Suga,” the Hottie’s next character, will arrive with her first full-length studio album.
”I felt like my mixtapes were me flirting with my fans,” Megan said, referring to her high-charting Fever mixtape and Tina Snow. “I never wanted to do an album ‘cause I was like, ‘Oh, that feel like marriage. That’s a commitment.’ But now, I’m ready to settle down with an album.”
Stalli also opened up about her impressive work ethic and future plans, beyond her upcoming album.
“I’m always trying to one-up myself. I don’t feel like I’m competitive with anybody,” she shared. “If I’m worried about beating somebody else, I’m not going to be the best version of me. It shouldn’t be a competition because somebody else winning is not going to make me lose.”
The Houston-bred rapper and Texas Southern University senior attributes her ambitious spirit to her family, namely her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Megan revealed she’d like to honor her family by starting her own business in her home city.
“I want to take my rapper money and start my own assisted living facilities in Houston because I see what it looks like when you got your grandparents take care of your great-grandparents,” the Houston Hottie said, who’s currently pursing a degree in healthcare administration.
Megan has been all about expanding her repertoire as of late, working on her acting chops in a starring role in Teyana Taylor’s new web series, “Hottieween,” penning her own movie script, as she revealed in her “24 Hour” Vogue video and taking her performances to the big screen on Saturday Night Live.
