Halfway through "Big Ole Freak," Megan Thee Stallion’s biggest song to date, the Houston rapper sends a warning shot: "You can't take no nigga from me—I got mind control."
Fifteen seconds later, she flips the script. After telling a would-be man-stealer to take several steps back, she transforms into a relationship guru: "Tell him 'Shut up!' make that muhfucka listen/I bet he gon' like it, he won't do no trippin'."
Megan Thee Stallion is savage, sweet, and sensual, all at once. And the video for "Big Ole Freak" keeps that exact same energy. Directed by Munachi Osegbu, the visuals put Megan's talents and impeccable assets on full display. "This is the hottest video out in 2019 right now!" Megan shared with Complex ahead of the premiere. "All my big ole freaks will enjoy this."
While rapping over an Al B. Sure sample—"Nite and Day," flipped by Dallas producer LilJuMadeDaBeat and previously known throughout Texas as the bedrock of DJ DMD, Fat Pat, and Lil Keke's "25 Lighters"—Megan twerks in a swing, in a blow-up hot tub, on a carousel horse; damn near everywhere. She performs like a certified athlete in training, which reflects the fitness junkie lifestyle she shares on Instagram.
"I talk about what I love on my body and I talk about what I like to do," Megan said while explaining her lyrical content in a recent Complex interview. "So if you wanna listen, you can. If you don't, that’s you."
On some fangirl shit, I literally screamed "Yes!" during the moments (*cough* 2:04 *cough*) when Thee Stallion twerked in a way that only she can, all while talking that talk.
Fever, Megan's follow-up to the Tina Snow EP, is set to drop sometime this year.
