The 17-track project also features several high profile guest appearances such as Beyoncé, Da Baby, SZA, Big Sean, 2 Chainz and Young Thug.
Megan was shot on July 12 following a pool party in the Hollywood Hills. The incident popped off following an argument inside a chauffeur-driven SUV and resulted in Lanez’s arrest for felony possession of a concealed weapon and a trip to the hospital for the Houston-bred rapper.
After doctors removed the bullets and/or bullet fragments from her feet, Megan was sent home to recover but was mum on who shot her. But during an Instagram Live session a few weeks later, Megan finally identified Lanez as the triggerman and the Los Angeles Police Department opened an investigation into his possible involvement.
Meanwhile, Lanez essentially disappeared from social media and refused to address the topic, that is until September when he released an entire album dedicated to clearing his name. Since then, Lanez has been charged with felony assault and ordered to stay away from the platinum-selling rapper.
In a recent interview with GQ, Megan claimed Lanez attempted to offer her money in exchange for her silence, but she declined.
“Like, I never put my hands on nobody,” she said. “I barely even said anything to the man who shot me when I was walking away. We were literally like five minutes away from the house. [At this point] I’m really scared because this is like right in the middle of all the protesting. Police are just killing everybody for no reason, and I’m thinking, ‘I can’t believe you even think I want to take some money,” she added. “Like, you just shot me.'” (A lawyer for Lanez has since denied anything like that took place.)
Needless to say, Megan has plenty of material to rip into Lanez on “Shots Fired” if that’s indeed what the song is about. Good News is expected to arrive on Friday (November 20). Until then, check out some of the reactions below.
