Megan Thee Stallion Says Her Next Album Is Finished: ‘It’s Honest. It’s Me. It’s Real’


Megan Thee Stallion has some good news for her fans (pun intended). On Wednesday (July 27), the self-proclaimed Houston hottie revealed her follow-up to 2020’s Good News has been completed and will be ready for fan consumption in the near future. Taking to her Instagram Stories, the 27-year-old suggested it’s her most candid work to date.

“So happy abt my album,” she wrote. “it’s finished. it’s for the hotties. it’s honest. it’s me. it’s real.” In another Story slide, she also teased a collaboration with fellow Houston artist Sauce Walka. “Ya spill me,” she wrote alongside the rapper’s handle. The post arrived less than a week after she released the single “Pressurelicious” featuring Future, which is rumored to be included on the project.

Megan Thee Stallion delivered her debut album, Good News, in November 2020 with contributions from DaBaby, City Girls, Lil Durk, SZA, Popcaan, Mustard, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Young Thug and Beyoncé. The project peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, while her single with Beyoncé, “Savage (Remix),” landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Since then, Megan’s star has only continued to rise. At the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, she was named Best New Artist, the first time a female rapper had scooped up the honor since Lauryn Hill in 1999.

The following year, Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world on their annual list. More recently, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Health Administration degree from Texas Southern University, something she promised her late mother she would do. A big part of her motivation to complete her degree was her mother’s March 2019 death.

“I want to get my degree because I really want my mom to be proud,” she told PEOPLE in June 2020. “I want my big mama to be proud. She saw me going to school before she passed. My grandmother that’s still alive used to be a teacher, so she’s on my butt about finishing school. I’m doing it for me, but I’m also doing it for the women in my family who made me who I am today.”
