Extra, extra! You’ve been reading about her all summer long. Now let Megan Thee Stallion give you the scoop. On Thursday afternoon, the rapper revealed that her debut album, Good News, is out November 20. The art is inspired by all of the headlines inspired by her, with Meg herself in a glass case holding a newspaper featuring her on the front page. “Hotties, I first want to say thank you for riding with me, growing with me, and staying down with me since my first mixtape Rich Ratchet!” Thee Stallion wrote on Instagram. “Through this rough ass year we’ve all been having I felt like we could all use a lil bit of good news.” No one deserves it more. Thee Stallion is still trying to move on from being shot this summer, allegedly by one of her closest friends, Tory Lanez. The Canadian rapper, who was charged with assault, dropped an album referencing the incident and denying the allegations. Unbothered, Thee Stallion recently dropped single “Don’t Stop” and has teased collaborations with Juicy J, SZA, and more. After wowing us with EPs Make It Hot, Tina Snow, and Suga, as well as mixtape Fever, Megan Thee Stallion is finally giving us an album.
Update, November 12, 8:30 p.m.: We were so excited for Megan’s new album that we didn’t even realize that Vulture was prominently featured on in her “Good News” album art. If you tilt your head and look to the left of Megan Thee Stallion, you’ll find an excerpt from the rapper’s interview with Vulture’s very own Hunter Harris for the April, 29 2019 issue of New York Magazine. In the profile “How Did Megan Thee Stallion Become the Next Hottest Rapper Out of Houston?,” Megan spoke with Harris about the impact that she wanted to have on other women with her music, and now you can read some of what she had to say on the album cover. “I don’t care about a lot of people’s opinions, and I feel like that probably comes across in my music, too, and in my personality. I just really want other women to feel like that because I feel like sometimes we walk around so uptight and we walk around trying to be something that we’re not, trying to hold up that image that we think that other people want to see. That doesn’t need to be the case.” We’re not crying, you’re crying.
