The rapper’s new song from her upcoming album “HISS” has created a new conflict between her and Nicki Minaj
Megan Thee Stallion is back with a second single after “Cobra”, released last year, showing the line that might follow her new album. The provocative single has created surprises and controversies, dividing users on social networks.
The rapper announced the single on the social media with a teaser video where she gives a controversial speech, with which the song would later begin. We can hear her saying, “I just wanna kick this s—t off by saying, ‘F—k y’all!’ I ain’t gotta clear my name on a motherf—kin’ thing. Every time I get mentioned, one of y’all b—h a— n—as get 24 hours of attention”
The determination not to let his name be tarnished is evidence, and in this song, Megan addresses the public scrutiny and opinions she’s faced over the past few years. Despite the letter, his call is to leave the controversy behind and move forward, something he has not achieved, quite the opposite.
The song, according to Genius, is produced By LilJuMadeDaBeat, Bankroll Got It & Shawn “Source” Jarrett and written By Shawn “Source” Jarrett, Joel Banks, Taylor Banks & Megan Thee Stallion. Also, the platform describes the song as a track where “Meg addresses various aspects of her life, success, and the challenges she faces, all while maintaining a confident and empowered lover.”
The trigger for her fight with the “Starship” singer was a part of the song’s lyrics where Megan literally says, “These bitches aren’t mad at Megan, they’re mad at Megan’s Law.” That verse has created the biggest war between fandoms.
Megan’s Law is a federal law that requires authorities to make available information about registered sex offenders. The lyrics were interpreted as a reference by Megan to Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, who is a registered sex offender, Variety explains.
Petty served four years after he was convicted of attempted rape in April 1995 for assaulting a 16-year-old girl.
After the controversy exploded, Minaj defended her husband in an Instagram live in which she remained off-screen, but let a song play, then unreleased, in which she made several references to Megan.
Megan reacted to that by saying, “I’m saying that a beaten dog is going to scream. That’s all. “Whoever feels it, let him feel it.” Meanwhile, the “Anaconda” wouldn’t leave the “Cobra” singer at peace and released a song dedicated to Megan.
On the music video, itself, we can see Megan transitioning between several different settings like some sort of capillary instillation and various screens emblazoned with her image.
We see the snake “Megan” from the egg. Like red as the predominant color. We see it dressed in veins and capillaries, or in the shape of a brain. However, the singer appears alone in the face of danger and her only interaction is with herself. The video ends with her in a room full of snakes, with her standing on a platform as if imposing herself as the queen.
The controversy does not stop between the rappers, but the fans are thus getting new music and they are getting new viewers. In this musical war there is no clear winner, but it depends on the side, for now we have to wait for the dust to calm down.
