Megan Thee Stallion’s debut album Good News is finally (almost) here. The “WAP” queen joined Ryan Seacrest on-air on Tuesday, November 17, and shared why now was the perfect time to drop her first-ever official album and how that epic Beyoncé remix came about.
“'Savage’ was already going on crazy and it was already a smash and I’m in the living room — actually probably in the kitchen because during quarantine I spent a lot of time in the kitchen — so my team calls me and they’re like ‘Beyoncé’s going to get on the remix.’ And I’m like, ‘What?!’” Hot Girl Meg recalled. “… The next day my manager comes in and he’s like, ‘You need to record a new verse of ‘Savage.’ … So literally I went in the living room and recorded a new verse … and I didn’t want to tell anybody until it was like for sure.”
The first person she told? Her grandma, making us love Megan even more.
So why was the perfect time to drop her debut album?
“My mixtapes and my EPs, those were just me getting to know everybody,” Megan shared, referring to drops like Fever and Suga. “I didn’t want to make a big commitment. Like, we’re dating. We’re getting to know each other, and I never wanted to call anything an album because I’m not ready to get married yet. Like, this is a big commitment … I take all my music seriously, but this is like my baby.”
Watch back the full interview in the video above for more, including why she also named the album fittingly Good News and what she's been cooking up at home.
