Megan Thee Stallion shared a stunning animated music video for her hit SUGA cut, “Savage.” The 3D rendered visual, directed by Jude MC, features a virtual retro aesthetic similar to older video games and cyberpunk anime like Ghost In The Shell. The Houston rapper can be seen sneaking into an evil organization’s headquarters, taking down armed men and riding down a neo-futuristic city on a motorbike. Her viral TikTok “Savage” dance challenge also makes an appearance in the video, performed by what looks like a lab-created humanoid.

Beyoncé jumped on the “Savage (Remix)” in late April and shot the song up to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, just behind Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj‘s “Say So (Remix).” This is the first time that two female rappers have topped the Hot 100, and the first time two female rappers in lead roles have dominated the chart’s top two slots.

Elsewhere in music, Jaden revisited his 2017 album SYRE with a music video for “Ninety.”
