Megan is back, baby. Thee only rapper in the game who has the nerve to go against their record label and drop a project without permission in our year of 2020! We’re trying to rep this energy too, which is why we’re already copying Meghan Thee Stallion’s Suga lyrics for our Instagram captions. Now, don’t side-eye me on that. You already know that with great bars, come great responsibility on the ‘gram. It is officially every hot girl’s duty to represent our Hot Girl Meg.
Before we take a deep-dive into all of Suga’s sweetest verses, however, let’s make some things clear. Technically speaking, Suga isn’t actually an album. Meg released her latest project as a nine-track EP on Friday, March 6, after catching several headlines over legal issues with 1501 Certified Entertainment’s CEO, Carl Crawford.
According to Megan, Carl Crawford and his label were preventing her from releasing new music over previous contract stipulations. She spoke out about the situation publically on Sunday, March 1, after which she filed a restraining order (!) in an attempt to void her pre-existing 360 recording contract with 1501.
Surprisingly, that (sort of) worked. A federal judge in Texas approved her request, meaning Megan was cleared to release new music—for now.
“I’m not even gonna call it an album, because I’m still in the middle of making my album,” Meg said in an interview with HOT 97 on Thursday, March 5. “When the situation came up, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. I gotta put out this music. I don’t want to just leave my fans with nothing ‘cause I don’t know what’s gonna happen.'”
She added, “The music that I have made and the songs that I really really like so far, I was like, ‘Let’s just drop this s–t on the EP.'” And behold, that’s what we have here.
Thanks to Megan’s IDGAF energy, we have some of the best lyrics to include on our Instagram captions, or otherwise. Check ’em out, below.
“Let’s play a game, Simon says I’m still that bitch, ayy”
In a reference to Fever‘s Juicy J collab, “Simon Says,” Meg is giving us big boss girl vibes all over again on “Savage.” Forget Simon Says; it’s what Hot Girl Meg says, now. Use whenever you get a little tired of Lizzo’s “I’m 100% that bitch” catchphrase.
“Baby, we a team and you match me like a theme”
From “What I Need,” Meg is giving you the perfect caption for your sweet couple pics with boo.

FACTS ARE FACTS AND THE FACTS ARE PUBLIC ‼️ I’m extremely pleased that 1501 and Carl Crawford were denied the request to dissolve the Court order and try to stop my music from being released. I will proceed with the release of “SUGA”. On Friday March 6, To be clear, I will stand up for myself and won’t allow two men to bully me, I am NO ONES PROPERTY. Y’all are choosing to highlight the issue of music splits...talk about everything else. This has nothing to do with anyone else including JAY-Z, stop deflecting and trying to make this a publicity stunt, I want my rights, The facts are; 1. 1501 doesn’t want to approve my budget to put out my project that the court is allowing to be released. 2. 1501 tried to stop my release, I prevailed in court 3. 1501 tried to fight the decision today, the court denied 1501’s request🤷🏽♀️ respect my deceased mother, she’s not here, you don’t know her, you weren’t involved, Carl should speak for himself, All the facts are public record available at the courthouse in Houston.
“I’m the hood Mona Lisa, break a n—a into pieces”
On “Savage,” we have another allusion to classic Hot Girl Meg with this throwback to Tina Snow‘s “Good At.” Throw this one into the mix whenever you get that fancy flick at a museum—Louvre not necessary.
“Gotta stay focused, gotta stay winnin'”
Meg’s “Crying in the Car” is by far the most vulnerable we’ve seen her. Keep this pep talk in your back pocket, from one strong woman to another.
“Ain’t no upgradin’ when you goin’ after me”
For when you’re feeling yourself even after all those dates didn’t work out, take that selfie and cite this line off “Rich.” You’re the upgrade, boo!
