Houston breeds real talent. The “Big Ole Freak” starlet , Megan Thee Stallion, holds it down for her city and her personal stake in the rap game with this body of work. Fever, laced with 14 tracks amid features from Da Baby and Juicy J, listens like a high-energy live-performance on each record. From hard-hitting opening takes like “Realer” to inevitable anthems like “Money Good,” Megan gifts listeners that gritty confidence, her upper-echelon requirements and her insatiable desire to secure the bag by any means necessary.
She holds a bulk of the album down by herself, a gallant but noteworthy choice. Some rising artists depend heavily on significant features from more popular artists to carry them to music industry stardom but Megan makes a strong independent claim with this album. The sure-fire lyricist can create hit records alone and with complementary collaborators.
She concludes the album with the predestined fan-favorite record “Running Up Freestyle.” Megan holds nothing back in this album yet appears to have so much left to tell. Which record will be your favorite? It will be hard to choose; indulge below.
