Megan Thee Stallion. That’s it, that’s the lede. As much as I wanted to come up with an uberwitty opening line, that’s all I need to say because the Houston rapper’s name speaks for itself. Megan has really been through it this year, but her debut album, Good News, is undeniable proof that she’s a conqueror and that she’s here to stay. The 17-track LP, which dropped on Nov. 20, is a resounding “f*ck you” to her haters, a declaration of power, and an emphatic expression of sexual desire. It gave me a much-needed boost of energy that’s going to sustain me through the weekend and probably the rest of the year. While I genuinely enjoyed every song on the record, I managed to pick my favorite jams.
