Megan Thee Stallion Poses Topless For New Album ‘Good News’
Megan Thee Stallion dropped her highly anticipated debut studio LP Good News on Thursday night.
The rapper has teased the album’s release for weeks now, posting pictures to social media, including this one where the 25-year-old poses for a faux magazine titled “Good News” in just her underwear with a telephone cord wrapped around her.
The 17-song album features some previously released singles like “Girls in the Hood,” “Don’t Stop” and her remix of “Savage” featuring Beyoncé. The rapper also collabs with DaBaby, City Girls, Lil Durk, SZA, Popcaan, Big Sean and 2 Chainz on the almost hour-long album.
“I feel like I had to name my album Good News because we’ve been hearing so much bad news and it’s like, okay, look, Megan Thee Stallion finally coming with the good news,” she told Nadeska during an Apple Music 1 interview on Friday.
The album’s first track “Shots Fired” is a new song that calls out Tony Lanez, without actually saying his name. Lanez reportedly shot Megan in the feet earlier this year. He previously released an album full of lines dismissing the credibility of Megan’s account of the incident, claiming that she couldn’t have been shot in the foot because her tendons and bones weren’t destroyed. She hits back, rapping that she was shot with pellets, not bullets, claiming that is why her foot was not as damaged: “You shot a 5’10” bitch with a .22/ Talkin’ ’bout bones and tendons like them bullets weren’t pellets.” Lanez has been charged with assault and has pleaded not guilty. He is due back in court in January.
A more positive song, “Body,” got its own music video, which was released in tandem with the album.
“Got some sexy bodies in the video,” she said of the music video in a clip on Instagram.
