Megan Thee Stallion Sheds More Skin On Her New Single “BOA”

Megan Thee Stallion continues to shed her skin and reintroduce herself to the world via a serpent theme in all of her releases. The latest, “BOA,” is her most confident effort yet.

The track, produced by LilJuMadeDaBeat, samples Gwen Stefani’s 2004 record “What You Waiting For?” Meg delivers a barrage of bars on the upbeat jam, dismissing her competition and asserting her dominance within the space.

“Doing sh*t for TikTok, bi**h I’m really Hip-Hop/ They all know my sh*t hot, ain’t listen when yo sh*t drop/ All my diamonds dancing I ain’t need to make no TikTok,” she spits in the hook. Notably, the Grammy winner does not specifically name anyone in the Hip-Hop space despite the fact she has been dubbed the artist to fire the first shot at Drake on “Hiss.” Kendrick Lamar followed up on his “Like That” verse back in March, leading to their current, tense beef. Listen to her new single “BOA” below.

Of course, there is also the ongoing tension with Nicki Minaj which hit a peak in January with the release of “Hiss” and Minaj countering with “Big Foot.” Things have been quiet between the two since, and the warning shots on “BOA” seem to be targeted at everyone in the rap game; Thee Stallion is galloping along and passing by anyone she sees fit.

“BOA” follows Megan Thee Stallion’s January single “Hiss” and the December 2023 release “Cobra,” all of which contribute to her running serpent theme. “Hiss” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and made history as the first female solo rap song to debut atop the Billboard Global 200. She also brought back #MeganMonday this week with a fiery freestyle over Gucci Mane’s legendary “I Think I Love Her” beat.

Meg is gearing up for her next album, though she has not officially announced a release date or title. She will also embark on the Hot Girl Summer Tour beginning next Tuesday (May 14) in Minneapolis, MN. From there, she will hit major cities such as Chicago, Detroit, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Houston. As of now, she has already sold out 13 arena dates.

The United States leg of the tour concludes on June 22 in Las Vegas before the Grammy winner heads overseas to Glasgow, Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam, London, and other countries. She won’t be alone either, as GloRilla will join her on select dates throughout the Hot Girl Summer Tour. They hyped up their looming road trip with their latest collaboration “Wanna Be” in early April, which debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Meg’s forthcoming album, assuming it comes in 2024, will arrive two years after her 2022 effort Traumazine and continue her trend of two-year gaps between studio albums, which began with 2020’s Good News. With her first headlining tour on the way, the Hotties will have a lot to celebrate soon, which is seemingly what Megan Thee Stallion’s mindset is focused on after a tumultuous last few years.
