The superstar appeared on the new version of Megan’s viral hit that was released last month (April 29).
In a new interview, the Houston rapper revealed how she had responded to the news one of her hometown heroes wanted to work with her. “I got a call: Beyoncé wants to do a remix to ‘Savage’,” she told the Guardian. “And I was like … what? Shut up. Shut up. You’re lying. Beyoncé don’t want to get on nothing with me. Come on, it’s me! I know I’m Megan Thee Stallion, but dang!”
She continued to explain the personal importance of the collaboration to her, saying: “You grow up and you friggin’ watch Destiny’s Child, and you go to the rodeo to see them perform. You don’t grow up and think you’re gonna meet Be-yon-cé!”
The new version of ‘Savage’ features Beyoncé singing and rapping, referencing her mother Tina Knowles in one line: “And my mama was a savage/Got this shit from Tina.”
Another remix of ‘Savage’ was released earlier today (May 8), this time reworked by Major Lazer. The track was accompanied by a video featuring brightly-coloured animations.
Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion recently said she was using her time in lockdown to work on a new album. I would have been working on it anyway, but what else am I going to be doing right now,” she said. “I’ve just been writing and we set up a little studio in here.”
