Megan Thee Stallion has announced her plans to drop her hotly anticipated debut album in 2020 by introducing her new alias: Suga.
In a new interview with NPR, Megan revealed that she was finally ready to “commit to an album.” “I felt like my mixtapes were me flirting with my fans,” she explained. “I never wanted to do an album ’cause I was like, ‘Oh, that feel like marriage. That’s a commitment.’ But now, I’m ready to settle down with an album.”
The Houston rapper also added that her forthcoming project will feature a new persona, Suga, whom Megan says is “besties” with her other alterego, Tina Snow. While an official release has yet to be confirmed, Megan said that the follow-up to this year’s Fever mixtape will only showcase her best work.
“I’m always trying to one-up myself,” she told NPR. “I don’t feel like I’m in [competition] with anybody. If I’m worried about beating somebody else, I’m not going to be the best version of me. It shouldn’t be a competition because somebody else winning is not going to make me lose.”
Yesterday, Megan kicked off her Halloween celebrations by unveiling a new horror-themed YouTube series, Hottieween. The Teyana Taylor-directed show has released two episodes so far: “Love Bites” and “Suck a Neck.” The third and final installment drops October 31, according to Billboard.
