Megan Thee Stallion came out swinging with her first solo single of 2023, "Cobra." Following her intensely personal 2022 record Traumazine, her latest single seems to hint at one of the reasons why she ended things with Pardison Fontaine.
In the explosive second verse of her new single, she recalls the moment she caught her partner cheating: "Pulled up, caught him cheatin'/ Gettin' his d*ck sucked in the same spot I'm sleepin'"
The Houston rapper confirmed her relationship with Pardi back in 2021 and the pair dated for over two years, eventually breaking up in 2023. Although neither have officially confirmed the split, a clip of him performing a spoken word poem went viral and people assumed it was about Meg.
Elsewhere on the track, Meg opens up about dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts: "At night, I'm sittin' in a dark room thinkin'/ Probably why I always end up drinkin'/ Yes, I'm very depressed/ How can somebody so blessed wanna slit they wrist?"
In a recent interview with ELLE, the "Savage" rapper confessed that she fell into a depression after the Tory Lanez shooting. "I didn’t feel like making music," she said. "I was in such a low place that I didn’t even know what I wanted to rap about. I wondered if people even cared anymore. There would be times that I’d literally be backstage or in my hotel, crying my eyes out, and then I’d have to pull Megan Pete together and be Megan Thee Stallion."
Below, listen to "Cobra."
