Megan Thee Stallion Says Her First Concert of 2023 Will Serve as a "Homecoming" — and "a Reminder"
Attention "Hotties," the 2023 Megan Thee Stallion drought is about to come to an end. The Grammy Award-winning artist is making her return to the stage on Friday, but her performing hiatus hasn't dulled her shine. "We're just setting the tone for the year," Megan teases to POPSUGAR.
The "Savage" rapper is headlining the AT&T Block Party for the NCAA men's March Madness Final Four on March 31 — "one of the biggest sporting events in the country," the 28-year-old notes. But the performance is more than just a chance to show off her talents, it'll also serve as a "homecoming," of sorts, for the Houston native.
"Houston is the city that made me and where my dreams began, so it's definitely a different feeling when you perform at home," says Megan in an email interview. "A lot of my 'Hotties' in Houston started this journey with me and watched me grow as an artist and as a person over the years, so I'll always have a special bond with them." It's also been some time since Megan performed in the Texas city, making her "excited more than anything."
"I've been blessed to have the opportunity to travel the world, but there's nothing like performing and doing what you love in your hometown."
The entire experience serves as "a reminder of how far I've come in my journey." "I've been blessed to have the opportunity to travel the world, but there's nothing like performing and doing what you love in your hometown," Megan explains. "My Houston 'Hotties' have supported and encouraged me since day one, and I'm looking forward to enjoying this moment with them."
That unwavering support still has Megan pinching herself. "Watching thousands of people rap my lyrics is still an unbelievable and humbling feeling," she tells POPSUGAR. "When I was younger, I remember manifesting these types of moments, so I don't take it for granted and I put my all into every single performance. I just love my 'Hotties' so much and I always want to give them an unforgettable show when I take the stage.
Unfortunately, the budding fashion icon won't divulge exactly what tracks she'll perform this weekend — "but just know that I'm ready to put on for my city."
