Today, Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion has come through with her fourteen-track debut album Fever. With appearances from DaBaby and Juicy J, Megan opts to handle the bulk of the album on her solitary wave, making sure to maximize the scope of her impact. From the jump, Fever kicks off on a hard-hitting tone, with introductory cut "Realer" finding her exuding gravitas and confidence in spades. Though you may have come for the lusty, lewd, bedroom bangers, rest assured there's plenty of Houston charm throughout, manifesting in no shortage of ways.
Megan navigates her album with something to prove, balancing that explicit, fun-loving "Big Ole Freak" energy with a kingpin's spirit. Should you be on the fence where Thee Stallion's music is concerned, citing an "unrelatable subject matter," enter Fever knowing there's more than meets the eye. And that's saying a lot, considering that what the eye sees is sometimes more than enough to satisfy. What do you think of Thee Stallion's official debut?
