Megan Thee Stallion, fresh off Grammy wins, brings back rap persona Tina Snow for latest single

·3 min read

Megan Thee Stallion is bringing some cold bars into hot girl summer.

The "Good News" rapper has spent a few months "recharging" in order to prepare the world for her latest single under her original rap persona Tina Snow. Seven months after her debut album, Megan released the highly anticipated single "Thot S---" along with an iconic, empowering music video.

"Thot S---" follows the Houston Hottie's typical sound: fast-paced rhythm, a chorus with twerk instructions ("Hands on my knees"), and line after line of lyrics that are both self-confident and sexually liberating.

In the new single, Megan uses movie references from the 1998 "The Temptations" biopic and the 1940 Disney movie "Pinocchio" all while giving a major nod (as well as a pat on her shoulder) to her recent Grammy wins: "I'm the (expletive) per the Recording Academy (Ah)."

In the video, Megan uses visuals to represent all women – specifically those who work in the public sector as sanitation workers, police officers and restaurant staff. The visuals for "Thot S---" begin with a white male senator watching her "Body" music video out of pleasure while simultaneously leaving negative, degrading comments under the video.

"The women that you're accidentally trying to step on are everybody you depend on," Megan told the senator in the video's opening scene. "They control every part of your life."

The rest of the video shows Megan and her team of hotties dressed as service workers getting revenge on the senator as he goes on with his day, sending a message that Megan is a "Hot girl, but (she's) still the coldest."

Her hot-to-cold transition took place after the release of her debut album "Good News." Megan was working around the clock: dropping a video for "Body" and starting an internet dance craze, posing on the cover of Harper's Bazaar and winning a Grammy alongside Beyoncé.

In April Megan announced on Instagram she needed to recharge from after the "demands of a Hot Girl lifestyle" and posted a photo of herself being locked away in a futuristic chamber.

One of the captions from her April posts read: "Meg has now entered a period of regeneration to prepare for what is next, in her absence... mgmt will manage all social posting on behalf of Thee Hot Girl coach."

Megan Thee Stallion returned rejuvenated more than a month later as her alter ego Tina Snow.

"IM BACK HOTTIES🔥 ADDRESS ME AS MS SNOW," she posted on Instagram Sunday.

Tina Snow was the name of the rapper's second EP released in 2018 that put her on the mainstream hip hop map. The project featured the her first Billboard Hot 100 hit — "Big Ole Freak."

Megan is digging in the past to bring back Tina Snow, but is looking toward the future for the next generation of musicians.

On Wednesday she announceda full-ride scholarship she is hosting for a student looking to start a career in the music industry at the Roc Nation School of Music, Sports and Entertainment.

"Getting an education is incredibly important to me, I still have academic goals that I want to achieve, so if I can use my resources to open doors and create opportunities for at least one student, then it’s a victory," the rapper said in a press release.

Megan will be graduating in the fall with a degree in health administration from Texas Southern University, she revealed on Twitter in February.
