Megan Thee Stallion has returned with new single ‘Thot Shit’ alongside a video that sees her revive her Tina Snow alter-ego.
The video appears to reference Republican senator James P. Bradley, who criticised ‘WAP’, Meg’s collaboration with Cardi B, last year. It begins with a white male senator watching Megan’s ‘Body’ video on YouTube, leaving a derogatory comment below.
He’s then interrupted by a call from the rapper – who warns him not to “fuck with” the women he depends on in day-to-day life. Meg proceeds to run the senator over with a garbage truck, with her and a slew of dancers continuing to cause havoc in his life for the remainder of the clip.
Watch the Aube Perrie-directed video for ‘Thot Shit’ below:
Upon the announcement of ‘Thot Shit’ earlier this week, a press release said the new track “celebrates women unapologetically enjoying themselves, doing whatever they want, whenever they want, regardless of what the critics have to say.”
‘Tina Snow’ formed the title of Stallion’s second EP, which was released in 2018. In an interview on The Zach Sang Show last year, she explained the character was “the side of me that’s a little more gangster – she’s just foot down, fuck y’all”.
The Houston rapper released her debut album ‘Good News’ last year and has since contributed Bobby Sessions collaboration ‘I’m A King’ to the soundtrack of Coming 2 America, as well as tracks with Maroon 5 and Lil Baby.
Earlier this week, Stallion teased her return with a futuristic, sci-fi indebted teaser video.
In the video, which was shared on the rapper’s social media accounts, Megan is seen hooked up to breathing apparatus in a futuristic pod. At first, we see her in a newspaper print outfit, similar to the design of ‘Good News’’s sleeve.
Later, she appears in a white bodysuit with cut out sides, hinting at the start of a new era. In between, a screen shows her body, mental health, confidence, bars, knees, and Tina Snow levels recovering until they hit 100 per cent.

In April, Megan said she would be taking a hiatus from music, sharing imagery similar to that in the new teaser to make the announcement. “Megan Thee Stallion is recharging!” one post read. “Due to the demands of the Hot Girl lifestyle <Meg> has now entered a period of regeneration to prepare for what’s next.” At the end of the new video, the rapper opens her eyes, suggesting her break is now over.
Last month the star announced a new online reality show called Off Thee Leash With Megan Thee Stallion. The unscripted project is part of the expanded Snapchat Originals series from Snap Inc.
Megan will also perform at this year’s Wireless Festival, which will take place in London in September. She will be joined on the bill by headliners Future, Skepta and Migos, as well as the likes of Meek Mill and AJ Tracey.
