For those who’ve been wondering how Megan Thee Stallion puts the spice in her more-sensual tracks, wonder no more.
The “Savage” rapper was the latest guest on First We Feast’s Hot Ones and, while chowing down on a buffet of super-spicy wings, broke down how to make a good freak anthem. “First of all, you need to have that good bassline, that good drum pattern, so you can be on rhythm,” the Grammy winner explained. “You got to match the strokes to the drums. If you cannot match the stroke to the beat, it ain’t heat.”
“Then you just gotta have somebody that can really sang, Megan went on. “Not sing but SANG, because when somebody can sang, you really feel it in your soul,” she added and made a few gestures when demonstrating how a good vocal riff can set the mood.
Elsewhere, the 26-year-old opened up about working with snakes when filming the “WAP” music video with Cardi B — revealing that it was the “Up” rapper’s idea and she was dead-set on using real live serpents.
“I was like, ‘Okay, if Cardi B saying she wanted me to lay down with some snakes, I guess I got to lay down with the snakes with her a**,'” Megan laughed, adding that she met the snakes and bonded with one green serpent in particular and joked, “We was killing it the whole time.”
But, she admits while she and Cardi were “trying to be all sexy” in the snake pit, “we were scared as hell.”
Unsurprisingly, Meg can handle her hot sauce and didn’t even break a sweat after trying one with an ominous “TBA” Scoville rating.
