Megan Thee Stallion has dropped her latest song, “Pressurelicious.” It includes guest vocals from Future and is sure to get you up on your feet.
Megan has been giving sneak peeks at the single since last month. However, she officially revealed its release date and single art on Wednesday morning via all her social media handles.
HitKidd is the producer of this track, and it was just released three hours before its usual time: “since it already leaked, lol,” Megan elaborated.
Megan talked about her next album and teased “Pressurelicious” for the first time in an interview with Rolling Stone. She spoke highly of Future’s contribution to this single.
“He’s just so fucking ratchet!” Megan said in the interview with Rolling Stone’s Mankaprr Conteh.
“He is unapologetically himself. I appreciate that about anybody who gets up and has to do anything in the public eye. Anybody who has to read about their life online every day and deal with so many energies and can put it out into their music and do it gracefully, I feel like you deserve your flowers,” Megan further said.
In April, Megan performed at Coachella in Indio, California, for the first time, in which she announced a new song while on stage. She revealed the track “Plan B” not long after it and dropped a music video with Casey Cadwallader and John Miserendino as directors.
Houston is the hometown of rap sensation, where the 27-year-old star was honored with her own day in the city.
She also recently dove among many artists who expressed their protest during performances about the revocation of Roe v. Wade.
