The record will be the star’s debut album following three EPs and one mixtape since 2017. Speaking to NME about it earlier this year, the rapper said: “I feel like I had been through so much; I was just finally ready to commit to the process.
“When I’m by myself, that’s when my creativity comes to me. The whole album was basically written in the living room, the shower, the backyard – just visualise it with me.”
Earlier this year, Megan teamed up with Cardi B for the chart-topping single ‘WAP’, which drew backlash from right-wing politicians and commentators. She said she was “really taken back” by their response, asking: “Why is this your focus right now? If you have an issue with what I’m saying don’t listen to it. Tune out, cos I didn’t ask you to tune in.”
Meanwhile, the musician championed Black women and addressed the alleged Tory Lanez shooting incident in a new op-ed for the New York Times last week (October 13).
In the piece, titled Why I Speak Up For Black Women, Megan opened by observing how Black women have become “a highly courted voting bloc” who are “expected once again to deliver victory for Democratic candidates” in next month’s US election.
