The Song That Will Make You Want To Take On All Haters and Enemies: Megan Thee Stallion, “Girls in the Hood”

“Girls in the Hood” could have been a victory lap for Megan Thee Stallion, who just scored her first No. 1 single on the Hot 100 chart thanks to a Beyonce-assisted remix to “Savage,” and in some ways it is, with the new single allowing the Houston rap star to flex on her doubters. Yet Megan is generally too inventive to rest on her laurels: sampling the synth loop to Eazy-E’s classic “Boyz-N-The-Hood,” she creates a distinctive anthem for herself and for women everywhere, complete with her top-notch wordplay and unexpected punchlines (case in point: the lyric about watching anime during oral sex). Megan Thee Stallion has become a star by refusing to be generic for one second, and on “Girls in the Hood,” she flips a beloved hip-hop track into a fresh showcase for her skills.
