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.”

Album Review: Chris Brown releases “Breezy”

Published

By

Let me start out by saying, as a member of Team Breezy, Chris Brown simply missed his mark on revisiting his debut sound. This is something he said we could expect from this album. None the less, the album is still nothing short of fire.

23 tracks are included in the standard edition of the album, and it’s giving you nothing short of the Chris Brown experience. Some songs and subjects can come across as repetitive subject matter wise and lack depth, while others are sure fire hits.

Stand out tracks on first listen for me are, Possessive (feat. Lil Wayne & Bleu), Pitch Black, Sex Memories (feat. Ella Mai), Sleep At Night, and Til The Wheels Fall Off (feat. Lil Durk and Capella Grey).

Get into the album below:

Oktum Releases Debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’

Oktum is a Hatian born & raised producer who is truly ready to take over House Music with the release of his long awaited debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which truly has been a labor of love. Now although this is his first music release, he’s definitely not new to music. The talented composer grew up engulfed in music as he listened to his fathers music in Haiti as a celebrated musician playing guitar for the band Les Shleu Shleu. As a kid he would listen to so many different genres of music with some of his inspirations ranging from Franz Schubert, Frédéric Chopin, Bob Marley to Dr.Dre and Thievery Corporation. As a teen he was introduced to the idea of production with FL Studios but navigating   a promising career in music seemed far fetched while living in Haiti at a time when crime and kidnappings were at an all time high. Oktum would go on to move to the U.S. living in Illinois and in NYC but unfortunately his passion for music didn’t follow him as the years went on. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles where he truly felt like he could finally get back into music. In 2019 something clicked and he slowly but surely began to tap back into his sound which has evolved tremendously. As he continued to work on his music the world was rocked by the Corona Virus outbreak but what most would consider a setback was truly the opportunity he needed to focus on his music. Now he is finally ready to embark on this new journey with the release of his debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which features 5 hard hitting tracks which is sure to get house music lovers on the dance floor. Get into the project below which is just a taste of so much more to come.
