It’s your time, hot girls! Today, Megan Thee Stallion dropped her debut album, Good News, and unveiled her music video for “Body.” In the two-minute clip, Megan and celebrities such as Taraji P. Henson, Jordyn Woods, and Bernice Burgos unite for a stylishly sexy dance break as the Houston rapper celebrates her curve of all types. “The category is body, look at the way it’s sittin'” she says. “That ratio so out of control, that waist, that ass, them titties / If I wasn’t me and I would’ve see myself, I would have bought me a drink.”
During an episode of YouTube Originals’ Released series, Megan spoke about the video’s emphasis on women empowerment. “You’re going to see all body shapes, a lot of strong women doing the damn thing,” she teased before the clip’s premiere. “Just being confident and owning their bodies and their sexuality.” Well, that’s exactly what we got, and we’re rocking with it.
Where “Body” may lack in it’s repetitive chorus, Thee Stallion certainly makes up for it with her verses filled with lines that are sure to be seen as captions up and down your Instagram timelines. She says she was inspired to pen the twerk anthem as she appreciated her figure during quarantine. “I’m like walking around the living room, freestyling, and appreciating my quarantine body ’cause I feel like I got a little fluffy and thick, and I was like, ‘Baby I still look good,'” she explained.
While rapping to herself in the mirror, she thought, “What does this beat make me want to do?” Megan recalled. “So I’m, like, rapping and twerking, and I’m like, ‘Body. Look at this body.'”
Saucy like a barbecue but you won’t get your baby back
See me in that dress and he feel like he almost tasted that (Ah, ah, ah)
Num, num, num, num, eat it up, foreplay, okay, three, two, one
You know I’m the hottest, you ain’t ever gotta heat me up
I’m present whеn I’m absent, speakin’ when I’m not thеre
All them bitches scary cats, I call ’em Carole Baskins, ah
