After the drop of her debut studio album Fever just last week, Megan Thee Stallion has accompanied its opening track “Realer” with a music video. The visual harkens back to the 1970s where Hot Girl Meg and her team can be seen riding around in a shiny convertible, dressed in equally shiny clothing and complete with big hoops and afro puffs. There’s also an evident ode to the famous detective trio of Charlie’s Angels, topped with background disco aesthetics that appear throughout the video.
The rising Houston rapper also recently graced the cover of The FADER, touching on the origin of her “Thee Stallion” moniker, the influence of her later mother’s rap career and what it’s truly like for females to step into the game. “And then being a girl too — they criticize you harder than they criticize men,” she said, speaking from personal experience. “If I was out there making little noises like Uzi and Carti be making, they would not rock with that. And not saying that they don’t be going hard, because we definitely finna turn up to both of them, but if it was a chick, like — no.”
