Meg shared the cover art and some sweet shots of her hair looking like soft-serve ice cream on Instagram ahead of the collaboration being released.
Dua Lipa and Megan Thee Stallion are two of the biggest names in music right now, and “Sweetest Pie” demonstrates what can happen when massive stars connect. The track also arrives as Women’s History Month begins to get into full swing. Both Meg and Dua have always made sure to support other women in the industry, and in a recent interview with CR Fashion Book, Megan took a moment to shout out all of the veteran women in rap that helped pave the way for her.
“Women are killing the rap game, so there’s no debate about our staying power,” Meg said. “There’s still work to be done in terms of equality in hip-hop, but it’s come a long way and we have to thank the queens that paved the way for my generation. There is no Megan Thee Stallion without Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Trina, Gangsta Boo, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Eve, and so many others.”
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1’s New Music Daily, Megan revealed how the track came together.
“I be seeing everybody making mashups of me and Dua songs and I’m like, “No, this sounds too good. We have to make a song.” So when I hit her up about it, I was like, “Dua, I really want us to do a song, but I got to find that right beat. It has to be perfect.” So I didn’t just send her no any track,” Megan said. “I waited till I had the perfect one and I feel like we both came to a mutual agreement that it was greatness. And now we got ‘Sweetest Pie.’”

To celebrate the release, Megan partnered with Goldbelly to share her own spin on a pecan pie, appropriately called “Megan’s H-Town Hottie Pie.”
“Ya girl wanted to create the sweetest pie of the century and my fam at Goldbelly did not disappoint,” Megan explained. “With the Texas-sized dose of sweetness it’s serving up, if you don’t have my pie in your mouth you are missing out!” For more on the pie—which costs $59—go here.
