Megan Thee Stallion’s Short Film Coming To Apple Music

Published

on

Megan Thee Stallion knows that the path to becoming hip-hop royalty isn’t an easy one — especially for women — but it’s the path she was born to take.

Megan details her rapid rise as a reigning emcee in an exclusive interview with Nadeska Alexis and a soon-to-be-released mini documentary as part of Apple Music’s Up Next series, where Megan is this month’s featured artist.

Girls, we have to go 10 times harder than guys,” Megan says over the documentary’s trailer. “We are still expected to give you the bars, give you the look, give you the routine. This is me — I wanna be a rapper, this is it.

Up Next featuring Megan Thee Stallion

The Houston talent has been a part of the hip-hop conversation since her early freestyles lit up Twitter and YouTube years ago, when she first started college at Texas Southern University. With the May release of her debut EP, Fever, she racked up more than 150 million streams, and peaked at No. 3 on the Apple Music charts the week of its release. The 24-year-old’s seemingly instantaneous success is due in equal parts to her unapologetic confidence and infectious, carefree, hot-girl mantra, which are referenced in her Beats1 interview and upcoming short film.

“The fact that Megan Thee Stallion initially captivated us with her freestyles is a testament to the skill and creativity that’s made her music hit so hard,” Apple Music host Nadeska Alexis says in a statement. “Factor in her slick-talking, rowdy alter-egos with her confident charisma and it’s easy to see that she is a born entertainer.”

The upcoming short (shot entirely on an iPhone XS), set to debut June 25 via Apple Music, centers on Megan’s early touring days, when she threw intimate house parties to build her fan base, and credits her two biggest influences, her late mother and hometown of Houston, as the propelling factors behind her drive.

“My mom was a rapper and she really shaped me as a woman, and the music that she was letting me listen to as a child really pushed me in the direction that I’m going in right now,” Megan says. Her mother passed away from a brain tumor in April. “[And] I’m just happy that I’m getting so much love from my city because we Houston! We hard! We’re tough on people. Just to know that the people in my city are really rocking with me, I just love it.”

When it comes to how Megan wants listeners to approach Fever, however, her answer is simple.

“I just wanted [Fever] to be something that was super turnt up the whole time — every song you should be able to bounce to,” Megan says. “Put the swag on it for the summer.”

Queens – S01E01 – 1999

Published

ABC launched it’s latest Primetime TV show, “Queens“. The show stars Brandy, Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez, and my favorite female rapper, Eve.

The show starts out giving you a brief look back at where the group started at and where they are present day. The writers do a good job with exploring each ladies personal journey, without putting too much in the first episode. However, comparing the show to other hot shows out right now, the acting leaves a bit to be crazy over. It kinda falls into the category of… “if there’s nothing on“, which right now isn’t the case, as the show is on the same time as the long awaited “Impeachment“.

Adele is coming…

Published

Adele took to her social media outlets earlier today to announce that her new single, “Easy On Me“, will be released next week.

As big as Adele is, it be foolish to say nobody cares, but one thing that always has baffled me is why do we get over hyped for blue eyed soul? Don’t get me wrong, Adele has made so much great music in the past. Her body of work is solid and stands alone. She has earned her spot. But as black people, why do we give blue eyed soul such a high praise, but in return have a hard time promoting and supporting our own people, the originators of this sound?

Please don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the music of the blue eyed soul singers like Adele, Sam Smith, and Justin Timberlake. I just hope that the original soul singers can get that kind of love and respect as well.
