Megan Thee Stallion fans are in for a treat after confirming that she is currently working on a new album set to be released later this year.
During Vanity Fair’s Oscar party red carpet interview, the Pressurelicious star made the announcement with just nine words before sauntering off with a smirk.
“Oh I am. New album. F*ck y’all hoes. Bye!”
She didn’t provide much deets, but the album will follow her 2022 sophomore album, Traumazine, which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and gave the world the hit songs Sweetest Pie featuring Dua Lipa, Plan B, Her, Ungrateful and Pressurelicious, featuring Future – who she says accepted $250,000 in cash to be on the album.
In a 2022 Power 106 Los Angeles interview with Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk, the Houston native revealed that she wanted the Atlanta rapper on her song, Pressurelicious. She knew he was in Miami while she was working on the album so her team made a phone call.
“So how I went about it was, okay, somebody figured out what Future feature price,” she said. “I was just asking what’s his feature price…and they was like okay 250. He wants 250K.”
She continued: “I was like, ‘Okay, bet.’ Somebody go pull 250,000 out of the bank…and go drop it off to Future and tell him I need the verse before he leave [Miami].”
According to her, Future delivered more than she expected. So much so, she ended up rerecording her initial verses so it would be more aligned with Future’s distinctive flow, which she describes as “The Future Experience.”
Prior to the album’s release, she tweeted about the troubles she faced before dropping the album.
“Y’all know I always have problems with dropping my music under this label. All these games and having to go to court just to put out my art has been so stressful. Thank you hotties for rocking with me through the bullshit WE ALMOST OUT. LETS STAY FOCUSED AND RUN THIS LAST ONE UP.”
