Y'all, it's finally happening! Megan Thee Stallion announced in an interview on Apple Music 1 on Oct. 28 that her second studio album is on the way. The Texas rapper released Something For Thee Hotties: From Thee Archives on Oct. 29 as a gift to her fans and as a way to hold them over until a follow-up to 2020's Good News arrives. "I've been sitting on these songs, so now I'm like, 'OK, the hotties deserve this. They should have it,'" Megan said of her latest mixtape. "And y'all should be prepared for next year."
The rapper also discussed the pressures of holding her audience's attention on social media in between projects and comparing herself to other artists. "I got to block out everything else, and I just want to rap. Sometimes it gets hard, though, because you look at social media and you're like, 'OK, this must be what's hot,'" Megan said of her relationship with social media. "I feel like a lot of artists, we look at other artists and be like, 'Oh my gosh, this has to be like this because they the sh*t so I got to be that b*tch, too.' But I'm like, 'Nah, it's not me.'"
