Update, Thursday, April 21 at 9:00 p.m.: So begging does work. Congrats to Thee Hotties, who have convinced Megan Thee Stallion to share a release date for the track she teased first at Coachella and then on social media. Since snippets of the song hit the internet, fans have been relentlessly campaigning for a full version. And Meg finally tweeted that her new song will drop at midnight Friday (9 p.m. West Coast time). Let’s just hope that lawsuit with her label doesn’t get in the way. Fans were calling the song “Letter to My Ex,” but the official track title is “Plan B.” For the emergency contraception and for still being that bitch.
Original story follows.
Megan Thee Stallion gave us a sneak peek at a new, currently untitled track at what she was calling Hottiechella. The song’s main theme? Not letting busted men get you down. “Dick don’t run me, I run dick” was an oft-repeated line. The song was a diss track on an ex, laid over a throwback ’90s beat. Meg said she dedicated the song “to whom the fuck it may concern.”
Meg played night two of Coachella, along with such acts as headliner Billie Eilish and former Oingo Boingo frontman and current Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness composer Danny Elfman. Elfman’s set consisted of some of his film and tv work (including The Simpsons theme song) as well as Oingo Boingo songs he hasn’t played live since the ’80s.
Megan Thee Stallion posted on her Instagram that the fan response to her new song may just push the release date up a smidge. One can only hope.
