Tomorrow, the rising Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion is positioned to deliver her debut album Fever, which features a pair of lone contributions from DaBaby and Juicy J; clearly, she understands the importance of praising both ends of the generational spectrum. A scholar of OGs like Biggie Smalls and Pimp C, Megan's confidence is one of her defining attributes. The quality comes out in full force on "Realer," which was recently unveiled on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 series.
The song itself is a straight-up banger, with aggressive pizzicato strings and percussive trap drums providing a menacing sonic backdrop. "Bitch you better learn who run it, cause all this money gotta come through me," she warns. "I keep it realer than real, fu*k all the critics and fu*k how they feel." It's definitely a worthy tone-setter for Fever, which arrives in its full fourteen-song glory at midnight tonight. Are you excited to see this one hit streaming services?
