Megan Thee Stallion has finally released her newest song, and it’s just as good as we expected. Her guest vocals come from Future on the track “Pressurelicious.”
Megan has been giving sneak peeks at the single since last month. However, she officially revealed the release date and accompanying art on Wednesday afternoon through her social media accounts.
The song is expected to be a hit, with HitKidd producing and releasing it three hours early than the usual midnight: “since it already leaked lol,” Megan elaborated.
Megan talks about her new album, and for the first time, she teases “Pressurelicious” in an interview with Rolling Stone. She also discusses Future’s pitch to the track.
“He’s just so fucking ratchet!” Megan said in the interview with Rolling Stone’s Mankaprr Conteh.
“He is unapologetically himself. I appreciate that about anybody who gets up and has to do anything in the public eye. Anybody who has to read about their life online every day and deal with so many energies and can put it out into their music and do it gracefully, I feel like you deserve your flowers,” Megan further said.
In April, Megan performed at Coachella in Indio, California, for the first time, in which she announced a new song while on stage. She revealed the track “Plan B” not long after it and dropped a music video with Casey Cadwallader and John Miserendino as directors.
