Equipped with her fearless bars and magnetic confidence, Megan Thee Stallion steamrolled through the year to make 2019 hers. In addition to dropping her first full-length project this year, Fever, Megan climbed up the Billboard Hot 100 charts with her hits “Big Ole Freak” and “Cash Shit” featuring DaBaby, and even locked in some big collaborations such as “Hot Girl Summer” with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign and her remix of Khalid’s “Talk.”
Behind her more recent mainstream success lies a journey spanning several years, back to 2016, where Meg earned her stripes as a rapper by steadily recording, releasing and building her fanbase brick by brick. Taking a look back at her early projects and singles, two factors have always remained consistent: her unshakeable charisma within her delivery, and her love for paying homage to her Southern roots through bars, references and samples.
Here are five Megan Thee Stallion tracks every superfan who's invested in her rise to the top should know.
